...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!
