I've been making "Tissue Box Covers"!!!!

Hello everyone!!!  Every Wednesday Splitcoast Stampers sends me the "SCS Weekly Inkling" and last Wednesday the tutorial in it was for a "Tissue Box Cover" (#232) and I decided to make several of them because I loved the idea!

The 1st one I made has a Tuscan flair and I made it for my SIL, Merrylene.  Here are three views of it:

Just recently I had purchased some Tim Holtz "Grunge Paper" from Michaels and I decided to use some of it in my design for this box.  I used it for the "Lotus Pendant" and for the trim around the box lid...I inked it with some Distress Ink and I now LOVE grunge paper!!!


Paper:  The Paper Studio, Tim Holtz "Grunge Paper" and some CS that I bought from Wally World years ago!
Ink:  Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" Distress Ink
Tools:  Pazzles "Inspiration Creative Cutter", Provo Craft "Cuttlebug"
Accessories:  Provo Craft "Script" & "Frills Set" and Sizzix "Textured Impressions Finial Press" Embossing Folders, Spellbinders "Labels Four", "Fancy Tags" and Shapeabilities "Lotus Pendant"

I then decided to make an FSU tissue box cover and my DH....he is a staunch down fan and he LOVED it.  Here are a couple of views of it:

For his, I used some K&Company "Collegiate" stickers that I've had in my stash for ages.  I used a Cuttlebug "Tiny Bubbles" embossing folder and some Tim Holtz "Black Soot" Distress Ink to make the lid look like a football!  Papers used for this one as Bazzill and some that CS that I bought from Wally World years ago!

The next one I made is for my other SIL, Lillian and she wanted hers to be peach and green.  Here are three different views of it:

My youngest son acquired some wall paper sample books for me some time back and for this cover I decided to use a plaid and a floral wallpaper sample in it!


Paper:  Bazzill "Palo Verde" & "Peach Glow"
Ink:  Tsukineko "VerseMark Watermark Stamp Pad"
Tools:  Pazzles "Inspiration Creative Cutter", Provo Craft "Cuttlebug"
Accessories:  Provo Craft "Just My Type Set" Embossing Folder, Spellbinders "Labels Two", "Fancy Tags", Shapeabilities "Classic Frame" and "Nestabilities LG Classic Ovals, Provo Craft Cuttlebug "Vintage" die

Thanks for stopping by to visit and I just want to add that I made a cutting file from the SCS tutorial for my Pazzles "Inspiration Creative Cutter" and all of my panels, plus the base and lid were cut using my Pazzles...don't know what I would do without it!!!

Those are the coolest thing I have seen in a long time! I am so behind in reading my inklings, so I hadn't seen the covers. They are so pretty. I would love to have the file if you wouldn't mind sharing, one pazzles addict to another!
