Tissue Box Cover

     So, have you guessed yet what I used the hearts from yesterday's post on?  No, not a card.  No, not a scrapbook page.  No, not a Valentine.  But this:

...a tissue box cover!  What do you think?

     I found the pattern and directions on Splitcoast Stampers.  The minute I saw this project I knew I wanted to make one.   I went to my Color Coach to pick the colors.  I knew I wanted to use Pink Pirouette, but I didn't know what other colors to use.  The Color Coach is the BEST tool  ever!  I came up with Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, and Early Espresso.  It is a beautiful color combination!

     The really hard part in making this was deciding how to decorate the box.  I spent about a week trying to decide what to do.  I didn't want it to be "Valentiney" (is that a word?), but I also wanted the frills and "girly" look to it.  During that week, I just started playing with things and the lacy heart was born, see my post HERE for a free tutorial on how I made the hearts.

     Here is a view of the top of the box:

Sorry this picture is blurry  :O(
     I will tell a little secret, that you must promise not to tell.  I used a Nestability to do the opening on the top.  I really struggled with how to do the top and I could only come up with a product not sold by Stampin' UP!

     Here are pictures of each side of my box:

Very nice, Sandy!
When I did mine recently (you can see it at and the two days prior) I cut the first layer hole using a retired SU coluzzle then hand cut the other layers with a kraft knife. You might be able to use the mover and shaper die.
