Tissue Box to Treasure Box with Stampin' Up! Products

Is it really the last day of the blog tour?  I have so much more trash waiting to become treasures!  Today we’re turning to the tissue box.  Now to be truthful, this is the not exact tissue box I worked with, I was so anxious to get working on it that I didn’t take a picture before beginning.  The one I changed was striped.

Vintage Vogue Stamp Set

Here’s the treasure I made!  This seemed like a good chance to try out one of these special roses I’ve been seeing and of course use one of my favorite stamp sets, Vintage Vogue.

Pretty in Pink Grosgrain Ribbon

The colors I used for the box are Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Whisper White and Pretty in Pink.  I did also use some Chocolate Chip ink to sponge onto the Bravo Burgundy but you’re not going to be able to tell that very well in the pictures.

Ornament Punch

The flower is made out of Whisper White cardstock and the Ornament Punch.  I used a sponge and some Pretty in Pink classic ink to tint the petals.

Inside the box

Would you believe, I was just crazy enough to cover the whole box, inside and out.  By doing so the box is pleasant to look at from any angle but it is also much sturdier.  Now there are at least three layers over every inch of the box so it’s going to be able to withstand much more weight than a regular tissue box.

Clear block storage

There are so many things that can be stored in this special little box.  In the first picture I had a bunch of handmade cards in there, they fit perfectly.  Here you can see that I have our new clear blocks in there.  The entire set fits with a little more room left for extras even.

Beautiful Wings Birthday Card

I decided to design a card that would work well inside the box and be fairly easy to duplicate.  Now I didn’t get enough of these made to fill the box, it’s just an idea.  This is a card we’re going to be making at my card class on Monday evening.

Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set

To make this card I used the Bella Toile and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets, Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon, one of the Stampin’ Up! Backgrounds I texturz Plates, Little Leaves sizzlet die and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.

Thank you for stopping by to visit again!  I hope you  continue to come back to check in once in awhile as I try to post new projects daily.

**I have had a lot of requests for a tutorial for the rose.  Sure!  Please come back on Wednesday, March 10 and I will have one for you! **

The tour is over so all links have been removed.  Thank you for visiting!
