Tissue Box

I was asked a few months ago to create a Tissue Box using a magnolia stamp. While browsing my LSS I came across this super cute paper by Bo Bunny and at the time the Butterfly Dreams collection had just come out so I thought it would be perfect together!  I love this color combo too! Which is why I picked it for this weeks Color Challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!  This week we want you to use "Orange, Teal, and Brown" together.

Tissue box covers are easy to make and make great gifts for co-workers, teachers or friends. 

I used spellebinders dies to cut a hole in the tops so that it was more decorative than a plain oval (can't see it in the pic, sorry). I colored  Tilda w/Hawaian Flower using copic markers. I love that orange combo. I got that combo from Annika! I was never happy with my peaches or oranges and I came across this on her blog and love it. It actually uses YR's and E90's. The butterflys are from a Martha Stewart punch as is the border punch. 

Hope to see you play along with us at Magnolia-licous Challenge Blog. The prize is a $25.00 gift certificate to the store.  Also, be sure to check out the other amazing creations by the DT! Get inspired!!

This is fantastic, Tracy! The color combination is very pretty and one that I would not have thought of myself. I have been wanting to make a tissue box cover like this and it's on my to=do list but I haven't gotten to it yet. Love this Tilda too.

That is adorable. Did you come up with the pattern to decorate your tissue box yourself? I need to do this for my house for the fall and would love to get some ideas. I do love those oranges; you will have to share the combos with us.
