Getting Out the Christmas Decor with Graphic 45

Hiyaz and Happy Tuesday All!!!
Hope you all survived Thanksgiving with full bellies and lots of naps!  By now, most of you are starting to get out the Holiday Decor, if not fully decorated.   Taking a family trip to pick a tree, decorating your mantle, or just getting out while you can to hang all those lights on the house. 
Well today I have a fun quick little Holiday creation that would look great on the mantle, or would also make a beautiful little heartfelt gift!

This tussy mussy was created using a heavy duty chipboard cone found at any local craft store. 
Easily decorated into a one of a kind gift for a friend.  Fill it with handmade flowers, or stuff all kinds of little goodies inside and turn it into a gift cone! 

Decorated with stunning papers from G45's Christmas Emporium line. 
Just wrap cone with paper, glueing as you go.  Trim down excess paper and seal with a thin coat of mod podge or gel medium. 
Once seal coating has dried, just decorate using vintage looking crepe paper garland and a little bling with a crystal. 
And don't forget to add a pipe cleaner handle for hanging..

Fill with handmade flowers all created from G45's Christmas Emporium to match!
It's really that easy!!
