Altered Tissue Box

Helllloooooo! What have you guys been up to lately? As for me, I have been trying to balance my schedule and hopefully squeeze in more craft time. That of course has not been very successful. I am managing though...just have to sacrifice some zzzzzzz time. LOL

It has been a while since I made any 3D projects. Thanks to Zulma at Lollipop Crafts, I got one done! Yay! Zulma is the hostess of the week at Lollipop Crafts and she chose MAKE A BOX/GIFT as the theme.

I've wanted to alter a tissue box for the longest time with Magnolia stamps. Believe it or not, it took me well over a month to color these four images. I am so glad this tissue box is finally done!

Here is my finished product!



I colored the images with Copic mostly and the shadow with Prismacolored pencils. Papers are by Echo Park. This is another new collection I {heart}.

Although this tissue box took me a long while to finish, it actually didn't take too long to make it. I got the wooden tissue box from Joann's and adhered it with smooth texture chocolate coredinations paper. I then glued Echo Park patterned papers to each side and finished it off with Tilda images.

My intention was to make a matching desk set....for my desk at work. Now that I have the tissue box done, I need to work on the pencil holder, note holder, etc. I anticipate getting all these done a little at a time and hopefully by the end of the year.

I do hope you guys enjoy looking at my little project. Thank you so much for visiting today
