Tissue Box Cover


I have my last posting for my 'Free for All' days at PaperWorksCo for the month of October.  This Tissue Box Cover has recently been up at SCS and I decided to give the tutorial a go.  This was SO much fun and absolutely dead easy!

I used this gorgeous RAM image from the Winter release - 'Flaky Friends' and coloured it up with my copics!  Each of the four panels is embossed with the cuttlebug snowflake folder and sponged over with Pine Needles distress ink.  I used the MS Icicle border punch around the lid to add some extra detail.  The paper is from Cosmo Cricket 'Jolly by Golly' collection available at PaperWorksCo.  I added a button and twine for a finishing touch next to the main image.  The sentiment comes together with the image when purchased .... you should check out the rest of RAM's Winter release stamps here.

I punched some MS snowflakes out and added adhesive pearls to the lid.  I used a nesties label 4 to cut out the aperture for the tissues.

I can't wait to have this out with my christmas decorations in the house!  Isn't it a wonderful way to fancy up a dull, boring box of tissues .... and goodness knows we need tissues at this time of year!!  I think I can see myself making quite a few of these as little gifts .... just imagine all the seasonal opportunities you could make with this box!

Thanks for stopping in again, it really is so great to see you here!  I feel like I'm finally slowing down a little and managing to get caught up.  I am doing lots of DT work behind the scenes though as I leave for  the  UK on November 11th .... I'm going home to celebrate my 40th birthday!

I hope you all enjoy a wonderful day .... it's blowing a hoolie here so don't plan on going very far!
