Make your Own Tissue Box at Crafting with Dragonflies

This fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies we're challenging you to make your own Tissue Box cover (any size). This might seem daunting, but there are lots of easy tutorials out there, plus my fellow Design Team members have some gorgeous inspiration for you.

We're sponsored by Bugaboo and I used their wonderful Cat in Hat - Youer than You digi stamp as the inspiration for this design. The Dr Seuss-themed papers are from my stash, and I also included this colorful quote from TLC Creations.


I modified the Tissue Box Cover tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers. I used scalloped ovals dies for the top opening (Spellbinders, I think).

The only coloring I did was on the cute cat from Bugaboo. I also added some detail with a Blue gel pen on the top.

I liked the box without any embellishments, but I couldn't resist make a little bow for the top. I cut it from a blue rubber tourniquet (my poor husband has been having a lot of blood drawn & he always gives me these rubber strips to craft with!) and added a bit of white pom-pom ribbon.

Even if you don't usually make 3D projects, I hope you'll join us at Crafting with Dragonflies and make your own tissue box cover. I haven't had a box of tissues in the house for a long time, and I know that this have given me plenty of smiles as I grab a tissue running out of the house!


I'm entering this project into the following Challenges:
All Crafts Challenge: Anything but a Card
Crafty Catz #244: Recycle It (rubber for bow)
My Craft Spot: Bags & Boxes


Thank you for visiting, and hope you'll join us at Crafting with Dragonflies,
