Wk 38 Stamp Something - Tissue Boxes

Hi Folks,

Sorry not up to much as have managed to somehow get another dreaded ear infection but did start work on an idea earlier in the week and have finally finished it today and luckily enough it fits the bill for this challenge.

I spotted an idea in a recent magazine and thought I would like to try it out, which is to make some tissue boxes. I have used pale orange card stock, a brighter orange card stock, cuttlebug, spellbinders shapes, flowers, card candy, sentiments and 3 lovely images 2 of which I stamped directly on to the pale orange card stock.

Here is the info to make the boxes as follows

Cut a piece of kraft cardstock 16.5cm (6 1/2") square. Score at 2.5cm (1") all around the square. This will be your box lid. Stamp a border stamp onto each edge and colour. Now cut each corner and assemble into the tissue box lid.

Cut two pieces of cardstock 25cm (10") by 13cm (5 1/8"). On both piecs of card, score along the long side at 1.3cm (1/2") and at 12.7cm (5"). Assemble together to make the tissue box base.

Stamp and colour a selection of flowers along the base of the box. Stamp, colour and cut out an image and place at the side of the box. Stamp/peel off and mat a sentiment to the front of the tissue box panel. Decorate with flowers as desired. I have slightly altered mine to add a base and the image of the little girl plus sentiments is on the back as well as the front.

Do hope you like this and that you might give it a try too and until next time which will now be at least next week as I need to rest with this ear infection, do take care and happy crafting, lol
