My first ever biscornu! I have stitched this up for an exchange I am participating in. It is a scissor fob. Here are photos of both sides. I couldn't find buttons the right size for the centre, so I did a couple of french knots on the purple side and an X on the pink side, in Krienik's gold.
I am so happy with it I'll be making a couple more as Christmas presents in the next week or so.

I have never heard of a biscornu, so I googled it to see what I could come up with. I found detailed instructions, complete with pictures. It looks like a fun project!

So pretty. I never did get the nerve to make one of those. I quit cross-stitching because it made my eyes crazy and I kept losing count but if I ever start again, I'm going to make one of these cuties.

I have no idea what biscornu is, but the photos of those little scissor fobs are just divine.
