Tissue box holder and a gift from a friend!

   Hello!  I have a couple of really neat things to share with you today! Yesterday at my demo meeting we did the cutest make and take project.  We made tissue box covers! Take a look:

Think about all the possibilities!!  You could make one for every holiday!  You could make one to match each room!  They would make super cute get well gifts (with the tissues included, of course! LOL) too.

There is no bottom, so it just slips over the box of tissues!  I made mine using Crumb Cake and sponged the edges of each piece with Chocolate Chip.  The faux ribbon is made from strips of Crumb cake.  You break the fibers and separate the pieces and then pleat it.

The flower is made from the blossom punch and the leaves are from the Build a Blossom punch.  The side pieces were  run through the Stripes EF and the top pieces were run through the Polka Dot EF.  Such a fun project!!  Thank you Kaye!!  (BIG hug!!)  

Speaking of my very sweet friend Kaye!! Take a look at this GORGEOUS gift  she made for me!!!

Isn't this beautiful?!!!!  I LOVE IT!!

Thank you Kaye!!  Thank you for the beautiful box and also for being such a wonderful friend! :)

Ok, I am off!  Lots to do still yet today!  Hope you have a great day! I will be back soonest with more to share!!

I am also so in ♥ with that flower on your box.

Great projects to share!

Awesome projects!!! I love the tissue box holder. Do you have a template??? I saw one at a stamp show, and really like the idea. The clock is also beautiful! What a wonderful gift. I had a friend who made one that was a totally different style. I love the way your friend decorated this one.
