I have thought about doing a tissue box cover for a while and I have finally got round to it. I used 300 gsm white card stock to make the shell to give a good base and then navy pearlescent card for the layers. The flowers are SB Jewel Flowers and Flourishes. I die cut the flowers with white felt and the flourishes with the same white card stock. I found some blue star brads which have been in my stock for years but they look fine as the flower centres. I also added some small flowers on the top with a blue pearl in the centres. I have never used felt with dies before but it worked so well. And it was cheap felt from Hobbycraft too.
The only problem now is making sure to get the same size tissues each time. If you look on the supermarket shelves there are quite a few different size tissue boxes. When I was in Sainsburys last week these facial tissues were reduced to £1 a box so I got half a dozen to make some more little Christmas gifts.
Hope this finds you all well.
