Happy Valentine's Day Heart Tussie Mussie Tutorial and Finished Photos

Hello Friends!
Over at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge blog
the current challenge is ...New Year's Inspirations.
Those who have been following me for a while, know that I took the last two years off from crafting because I became an Assistant Scout Master for my two son's Boy Scout Troop.

Recently...I started playing digitally again...I just LOVE it...creating new sheets...and then coming up with a project using them.  I find myself staying up till 3am  

I am still doing all the ASM stuff...but I have decided to make sure I have time to create...because it is fun..and stress relieving.
So...I have a few goals for the new year...and the one I am sharing to create items using my collage sheets.  I have been bad about just designing a sheet...and not actually making much from  I am also doing more how to you will see below.
(I have a few other crafty goals that I will share later this month)

Today I am sharing a Heart Shaped Valentine's Day Cone or Tussie Mussie that you can create and fill with goodies for your loved ones this Valentine's Day.

It is just easier to take a photo while the tussie mussie is

Close ups
Cotton Candy Baker's Twines was used to tie sweet little knots in my buttons.  Pink Organza is what I used to hang my cone with.  You can find them both at Really Reasonable Ribobn.
Yay!!  I just found my Bow it all I decided to make some pink organza bows to go on my cone.  I made them and glued them on with designer dries clear glue.  I am using clothes pins to hold them in place till they are dry.
Here is the cone finished.
