Tussie Mussie Candy

Howdy.  Whew.  I didn't realize that it had been so long since I posted.  A week and a half.  WOW!  10 days.  Holly Smokes!  Well, for those of you who have stuck it out with me being absent, I have some candy to reward you!  Keep reading, but let me show you some photos.
I have two craft fairs in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area tomorrow and Saturday.  So, I have been busy creating stuff to sell.  But, I sincerely apologize for being absent.  I generally photo and share what I have been working on, and I sincerely apologize for not being here.  Please stay tuned.  
While I was brain storming on what to create for the craft fairs, since Mother's Day is basically right around the corner, I stumbled upon these sweet little treat holders: Tussie Mussies.  Ok, they are basically paper cones.  But, come on, that name is just too cute!


So, I set out into my craft room and whipped up a dozen.  I'm not sure how popular they will be, and didn't want to make 25, to sell 2.  Know what I mean?  And so, I figure a dozen is a good starting number.  But, who knows, these little cuties are a blast to create.  I just may end up at the craft fair with 2 dozen {smile}.

Ok, you are probably asking yourself what's all the blah, blah, blah about?  Well, its the 'candy'!  I will send two lucky random winners all the supplies to make their own Tussie Mussie (paper cone) {smile}.  How super cute would that be?  But, here are the particulars.  Please read carefully, and good luck!
1.  post a comment on this post about the paper cones Tussie Mussies.  Please include a favorite color.  
2.  have an email address attached to your comment, so I can contact you, to obtain a mailing address, to send you your 'Candy'.
3.  the winner will receive all the materials to create one cone: cone base, bottom 'cap', two lengths of ribbon, the strip to make the medallion, two circles to stack and a middle sentiment piece.  
4.  supplies will vary from those pictured.
5.  the 'contest' ends May 11th, 2014.  I figured that I had been absent for 10 days, I should at least give you 10 days to come back and enter to win some 'Candy' {smile}.

I will post some more photos, soon.  I promise!  But, until then, good luck with the Blog Candy contest, and happy crafting!

These "tussie mussie" cones are really cute. It would be so cool to be able to create one from the items you send because you are SO creative and I know it would come out beautiful especially in blue (my favorite color). My email is bethabq@msn.com. Thanks for the opportunity to play along.
