Tissue Box Tuesday Alchemy Challenge 44#

Hi everybody,

Thanks for popping over and checking out the blog this morning , Today we are joining Tuesday Alchemy for their weekly crafting challenge and this week its Challenge 44# 'Anything goes'  A huge thank you goes out to our sponsors SASSY STUDIO DESIGNS who have very kindly put up 4 digital images as this weeks prize

To make my Tissue box you will need

Tissue box template
Sassy Studio Designs 'Snowman Pinup' image
spectrum Noirs
Fleur de lis rectangles spellbinders die.
spellbinder die create a flake 3
spellbinders layered poinsettia set
spellbinders labels twenty die
pink pearls
Tim holts Distressing inks
peel off borders and corners
Pink and gold mica paint

Here's my Contribution , its a sassy tissue box cover, complete with snowflakes and lace!! The tissue box blank kit was made using a template these can be found on the Internet but I purchased mine as a template kit from J and C Creations warehouse, They are on sale at the moment, inside you will get a template and around 20 different sheets of coloured card to make your boxes up , why not check out the  website for more bargains or pop down and visit their unit on one of their open days ...

The images have been coloured with promarkers and spectrum Noirs and glittered on the highlights, then cut out in an oval. I've added some gold peel offs around the edge and matted onto a Fleur de lis rectangles spellbinders die that had been lightly inked on the edges with red and green Tim holts Distressing inks, I did 4 one for each side so the front view matches the back

The blank box was painted pink and then dabbed with some gold mica paint using clingfilm. This technique is easy and affective

The snowflakes have been cut from another spellbinder die create a flake 3 and topped with a gold paper candie and the poinsettias are cut from spellbinders layered poinsettia set  in snow white vellum and embossed with some veins on them for interest then I popped a pink pearl in the centre.

The top of the tissue box has been embossed through the cuttle bug inside an embossing folder and added after a aperture had been cut in the middle of it with yet another die spellbinders labels twenty die , Anyone who visits my blog on a regular basis will know I rarely make a card or project without a spellbinders die in there somewhere!!
Add some Snowflakes in the corners on top of your tissue box cover. Trim your box with some lace for a pretty finish and then pop your completed cover over your tissue box.
