Christmas Gift

Winner badge
This project won at All That Scraps!

Wow!  I sure have  been busy creating this past week.  Sooooooo much to do and not enough time to get everything finished by Christmas!  Why am I always such a procrastinator!  Here's another project I just finished for a 12 Days of Christmas swap I'm in on the Cricut MB.  I decided to try my hand at a Tissue Box holder and I absolutely love how it turned out!  I was going to make a Christmas Tissue Box, but I figured this way my partner could use it year round if she wanted to.  I used my favorite color combination for this one, as pink and brown is also a favorite of my partners.  I followed the sketch from Totally Gorjuss for each side of the box and I think it turned out cute.  The paper is by Kaisercraft and I got it from  I also got my Magnolia pink garland there as well.  My flowers were originally white ones by Recollection, but I colored them with my pink copic (R81) and sprayed them with my Pearl Glimmer Mist to make them sparkle and shine.  The pink bling I used is also from Kaisercraft.  I used four Tilda images (Midsummer Tilda, Dinner Tilda, Sweet Tilda, and Fairydust Tilda) and cut each of them out by hand and mounted them on the pink paper.  These Magnolia images can be found here at All That Scraps.  I'm sending a box of kleenexes along, but did not want to open them yet as they're not for me.  I hope you like my first attempt at one of these projects!

Here's each of the sides:

And a view from up top.  I love how the flowers match my project because I was able to color them with the same Copic!
