Good friday morning everyone - it's time for challenge #24 at Crafty Ann's and we have something a little different this time because we want you to make Anything But A Card!
I've decided to make a virtue out of a necessity and make a cover for a tissue box for Christmas. I thought it might be rather nice to make it part of the decorations this year. I've used one of the papers from tartan collection 1 and fastened the 4 corners together with a narrow satin ribbon so that it can be folded down and stored away with the rest of the decorations when we take them down again. The poinsettia on the top is a new digi and will be in the shop later today (hopefully) as will some sheets of pre-coloured ornaments that I've used around the sides. I've coloured the poinsettias with promarkers.
Each ornament has been backed by a piece of white pearlescent paper that's been put through a snowflake embossing folder. The tiny irridescent bows add a lovely finishing touch.
I'm also entering my tissue box cover into these challenges:
