A Swap for All Seasons --- Tussie Mussie

I had never heard of a "Tussie Mussie" before I decided to enter A Swap for All Seasons May Day swap.  I soon learned it is really a decorated cone, at times used to hold bouquets.  
Since my swap partner has already received hers, I thought I'd share the one I made.  




Above are some vintage goodies I included in my package. 
The hankie was one of my mother's.  She always carried a handkerchief with her wherever she went.  A lovely tradition, but I'm thankful for Kleenex myself.   
The chipboard flowers  I made for my partner before I learned she won the $100 Prima Giveaway.  Oh, well:)
I had fun making the tussie mussie.  I think I'd like to give these a try with a Christmas theme.

How sweet, Louise! These would be great for my granddaughters - start an "old" May 1 tradition. Hmmm... yeah!

Very beautiful! I love the heart boarder lace around the cone. You can put chocolate in mine, LOL!

Adorable Tussie Mussie and such fun goodies inside. I bet she was thrilled with it all, even though she won the primas I girl can never have too many flowers right?
I just made 3 fabric Tussie mussies. I hope to share on my blog after I give them to my GF's tonight.
