Does Anybody Have a Tissue?

Today Kirs shows us how she altered a tissue box from Creative Imaginations. She keeps this box in her kitchen, on the dressoir. A big eye-catcher! Better than the plain boxes that tissues typically come in!

Tissuebox : Creative Imagations
Transparency : Hambly screen prints
Stamps : Sassa Frass and one made by myself (guirlande)
Ink : Stazon black
Paper: Elsie, Scenic Route
Photo-corners : Heidi Swapp
Paint green grey : Making Memories
Eyelets silver
Soufflepen blue
Pen : Poscanpen white green blue
Felt blue and orange
Vintage paper
Memoblock paper
Memocard (or price card)
Clear button
Plastic bubble wrap

Paint the box in green. Take plastic bubble wrap and apply grey paint on it. Then stamp the wrap onto your box. When it is dry, outline the circles with a blue poscapen.
For the button with a star: take a star stamp and ink it with stazon black, then stamp it on the clear button. Once it is dry, make random outlines with a green poscapen. Use some string to make a faux stitch.
With a Crop-A-Dile, add silver eyelets to the corners of the photos. Randomly add small dots on with a white soufflepen, then outline the dots with a blue or green poscapen.
Adhere the photos on three different layers; a piece paper (Elsie or Scenic Route), a piece transparency, and vintage paper. Embillish it with tabs, stars, bling, wordstickers, felt, photo-anchors and clips.
One side of the tissue box is used for journaling. Use your piece os memoblock paper, memocard, photo-corner and felt to decorate.
