Christmas Tussy Mussy Class - Nov 25th

Put on your Christmas creative hat, avoid the shopping crowds, and come to the Christmas Tussy Mussy Class on November 25 from 1 to about 3:30pm. The most elegant of the Victorian era paper crafts were the beautiful tussy mussies that were made to hold flowers. We will make a Tussy Mussy to be filled with gifts, candies or seasonal adornments such as holly, berries and ever greens. Hang the Tussy Mussy on a hook in your house for a sweet touch of Christmas elegance, hang it on your Christmas tree or favor a friend with this special gift. My tussy mussy is about 13" long.

This Tussy Mussy is made from one sheet of Christmas cardstock. I will bring a box full of trims, both modern and vintage, plus lots of other fun items to use on your project. From the store, you can purchase pearls, buttons, ribbons, and other items to make your special, one-of-a-kind Christmas decoration. Class cost is $10 and the material cost will depend on what you choose from the store and my stash.

You will need to bring these items to class: scissors, ink applicator, red ink, brown ink, green ink, decoupage glue, wet glue such as tacky glue, Scotch Quick Dry glue or Zip dry glue, Perfect Pearls mist or something like it, a glue gun and glue sticks (I have two in case you don't have one) and a small brush.

Hope to see you in class. Register for class by calling 364-4141.
