Since Tussie Mussie's were originally used to hold flowers, and are Victorian. I think they are perfect for Valentines Day. If I were to give one as a gift, I would fill a little bag with chocolates, or salt water taffy and tuck it down inside.
Here is one that I have made. Embellished with vintage wallpaper and a row of rhinestones that came off of my mother's old party dress! This tussie was made last summer and holds peonies from my garden. A reminder that spring will come!
