PCS April Issue: Make Mine Vintage

The April issue of Paper Crafters Sampler, Make Mine Vintage, has arrived!

If you're a fan of vintage style, then you don't want to miss this issue. Filled with vintage-inspired projects, included a 3-D corset, the newest template designed for Sampler subscribers to coincide with this month's theme.

Here's a sneak peek at my project, a vintage favor cone or tussie mussie.

"Historically a tussie-mussie was a small Victorian bridal bouquet. In the decades that followed, this term also became synonymous with a small cone-shaped vessel to hold a single flower or some other type of treat. Tussie Mussies were popular during May Day celebrations." [ref] These treat cones are perfect for hanging from the back of a chair at a holiday dinner, such as Easter dinner, or for a party or wedding favor. These can also be hung from a door knob as a surprise for the recipient.

Thanks for stopping by!
