I made this tissue box for a sick friend that is a music teacher.
One of the hardest things for me to make is anything .....masculine. I am always inclined to smother everything in glitter, ribbon and any kind of sparkly trinket. I started with this tutorial from Splitcoaststampers........
SCS has well written tutorials that even I can follow~LOL
The tip of the day is..... yes, I learned this today....when you are choosing the embossing folder, choose one that is not to intricate. The more intricate the design, the more feeble the opening for the tissues is. I doubled the the card stock on the opening to make it sturdier. I try to make my projects to stand the test of time.
I know my friend will be thrilled with his designer tissue box. The edges are all sponged with creamy caramel ink. for more dimension. I hope you give it a try. I know I will be making these again.
Paper~Kraft, Black, White
Ink~Memento Black, Creamy Caramel- SU
Accessories~Spellbinders, Black Grosgrain ribbon, Sponge, Tim Holtz embossing folder
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!
Over and out,
