A Late Little Valentine Project

Hello, all!  Welcome to you all on this snowy morning in the Mid-Atlantic!  Boston and New England have gotten most of the snow this year but last night and today it was our turn.  Of course, ours wasn't anything like what Boston has endured this year but we can't handle snow the way New England can.  If we ever got 90 inches of snow in a season we'd never dig out!!  Anyway, I don't mind snow if I don't have to drive in it and it certainly is pretty out my window!

Today I want to share another Zentangle project.  My friend, Patti, designed a pretty Valentine Zentangle project and showed a group of us how to make one.  It's a cornet or a tussy-mussy holder.  Here's what it looks like.

Patti supplied the holder and the paper, we chose the tangles we wanted to use.  I added a pop of red throughout because I've come to like the black and white and one bright color in my Zentangles.   I didn't finish it until the day after Valentine's Day but next year I'm going to fill it with chocolates. 
Here are some details.  The photos aren't very good because the weather hasn't been very cooperative with the light!

As you can see, I've lined it with red card stock and used a red satin ribbon for the handle and the tassel at the bottom.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out. 

Well, that's it for today.  I hope you have a wonderful day.  I'm hoping to do some beading for a change!  Thank you so much for visiting with me and leaving your wonderful comments.  I really appreciate it. 


  1. That is the prettiest chocolate holder I have ever seen!
    Maybe dried flowers too :-)

  2. Marianne! how did you fare in the snow today!?!? I enjoyed seeing my DC friends' posts today. Giggled a little too! :) I love your tussy-mussy holder....plus I love an excuse to say "fussy-mussy"!

  3. That is such a sweet Valentine's gift for someone (who loves chocolate - or what ever else you want to fill it with :) LOVE this and such a great idea

  4. Oh wow, it looks amazing! I totally admire people who have the patience to do zentangle, - the effect is stunning!

  5. what a cute party favor! Love your color choices, and I agree with Christinne...a little posey of flowers would be so sweet!

    As I type this on Wednesday evening, the second round of snow here in Northern VA lasted 14 minutes...I timed it! Just a slight coating...enough to cause traffic pile ups for sure! Stay warm!!!m

  6. This is beautiful - the pattern looks like quilted fabric at the top - in fact I thought it was at first! Just amazing!
    Stay warm and safe, and I hope the snow soon makes way for sunshine!
