Covered Tissue Box...

Here is my next little projects for you today.  I have a good friend (Cecilia) who had an accident and needed nose surgery to correct her problem.  So what could be better after surgery to help her along  than a pretty little box of Kleenex (just in case)?

I saw this done elsewhere (on Pinterest somewhere) and thought what a cute gift idea to give someone when they are sick or have a bad cold.  I got busy and began to use my swirl stamps and used my blue embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle along  with light blue paper.  Covering the box from the original packaging, I used pretty flowers, leaves, pearls and covered it all for a new look and presentation. 

I had already sent Cecelia a card in the mail to wish her get well right after surgery but wanted another little card to give with the box to match when visiting with her.  I then stamped this cute little verse inside of it and signed it and gave it to her.  She thought it was precious!

I have added a few directions here in case it inspires you to make your own sometime?

Directions For Box:

Step One:
Chose a Kleenex box of your choice.

Step Two:
Measure top of box and sides to the size you want to cover and cut according to your measurements.  Cut the paper you selected as your base color and remove the center of the Kleenex from your box.  Trace the Kleenex center onto your selected paper.  In this case the ends were absent so I made my own tracing with my Spellbinders Ovals to help me cut the perfect shape. 

Step Three:
Now take a Xacto knife and cut the center of your paper you traced.

Step Four:
You will need the top and two long side and two short sides.

Step Five:
I took each paper and embossed them.

Step Five:
I decided I wanted a silver background for each of my papers. I then cut and embossed and glued them onto each piece of blue paper.  Adding a silver background to my paper adds a little more of a finished touch to the box.

Step Six:
I also had to use the Xacto knife to cut out the backgrounds silver lining.  I then glued each paper on to the box.

Step Seven:
Now after all sides are covered begin adding all your flowers and decorations to your own liking.

I hope these directions helped you?  Let me know if you make a box?
 I would love hearing from you.
