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!






SUPPLIES:
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)
Stitcher
Clear button
Touwtje
Plastic bubble wrap
Crop-a-Dile



HOW TO:
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.
