This is a Tussy Mussy made from an altered tp roll. The idea sprung from a lot of videos on Youtube that I watched while I was under the weather. I just had to make one as they are so pretty.
The Eiffel Tower is a CottageCutz die. The inside was lined with black cardstock I stamped a piece of white cardstock with a Large French Script Stamp that I got at a yard sale for 50 cents. Upon inquiring about this stamp the best I can come up with is that it may have been a Stampin Up stamp but I am not sure. I then distressed with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and glued to the tp roll. The bottom was then hot glued together to form the holder. I used some trim that I bought a long time about that is beaded and had that fufu on it. The heart is a Martha Stewart Punch that was glued to black cardstock. It was cut free hand so it would show up on the paper. The heart on the Eiffel tower is a Recollection sticker, the flowers were in my stash. The pink rhinestone flourish is also from Recollection. Gathered lace was attached around the opening to dress it up and more eyelash yarn was glued at the top to compliment the bottom treatment. The handle was punched with Martha Stewarts Heart border and glued to each side. Little bows were made with ribbon and adhered to the handles on each side to dress it up. This is ready to have Hershey's Chocolate kisses to be placed inside!
Thanks for stopping by today. I really appreciate it. See you in the gallery!

Beautiful still - worth looking at a bunch of times my friend. I sure wish this incredible beauty was coming to my house! It would need to come without candy though - I am on a very strict diet right now so I can have a better range of MOTB dresses to wear for the wedding. My goal is 31 lbs by May - I have lost 8.5 so far so I better stop cheating (it is sooo hard) and get with it. Hugz!!!!
