a new craft

Whimsey Pockets!


I had never even heard of one of these. 
They remind me of treat cones but a little more fancy. They are made from a flattened, cardboard paper towel tube.  When you pinch the end closed, it gives a great oval-ish shape.

This is my first one and of course, is for a swap. The theme was Bordello Chic. I filled it with a few goodies for my swap partner per the swap requirements. It was pretty fun to make so I will likely be making a few more of them. Possibly larger so they can be more detailed. 
This one is just  2.5" by 3.75"

I've also been slipping in an ATC here and there. 

We have house guests from out of town and lots of things happening around our house so art and crafting has taken a back seat.
