Tilda blowing kisses ... a kleenex box project

Hi there!

Thanks for popping in today to see my little Tilda project.  I've been asked to make up some of these kleenex box covers and I thought I would do a valentine one using this sweet Tilda.  I have altered it slightly so that she is blowing hearts - isn't she cute!

I followed the tissue box cover tutorial over on Splitcoaststampers - super easy to follow!  Each side and the top is embossed with this sweet daisy flower design (just given to me by a friend, Lilia, thank you!)  I sponged Spun Sugar distress ink on the edges and over the embossed flowers to add in a gentle hint of pink.

I used the MS Deep Edger heart border punch for the bottom border of the box and trimmed it with this gorgeous pearl lace.  I added some punched hearts in both red and pink.  Tilda is coloured with copics and trimmed out and sitting on top of the hearts.

I decorated the top of the box with some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaf punch from MS. The oval is die cut using a testability.

Thanks for your visit today - it's greatly appreciated, as are any comments that you may leave!  It took me all day to get this done today.  It was my day off work and I had hoped to get a lot more done but unfortunately my 10 yr old son, Joel, had an asthma attack at school.  He is doing ok now but it's always a scare when it happens.

Have a great evening everyone ... not sure when I'll be able to post again.  I seem to be averaging one a week at the moment.  I'm loving my job but it sure does get in the way of my crafting, LOL!!!

Hugs, Danielle x
