Tissue Box Covers

 Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well.  Thank you for popping by, love to have you here.
Busy with a few projects, not much free time just now.  I have also started a Mini Album .... I saw one on  and loved what she had done.  Another person doing them is  if you check out their Blogs you will see the kind of thing I am taking about. These ladies have made a wonderful job of theirs and have shown them on their Blogs.  The way mine is going at the moment I cant see that happening here any time soon.  They are a lot of work, some of the ingredients are not so readily available here.  I have to "Make do and Mend" as they say.  Its fun for me and that is the main thing.
Last week my friend Pearl phoned to ask if I would make her a couple of Tissue Box Covers.  I made s a few for Pearl some time ago. I got some wallpaper she was using to decorate her rooms and made the Boxes to match. She has managed to get her mum into a lovey Nursing Home not far from her and would  like covers made to make the room look as pretty as possible for her mum.
So here they are:-

I used an old design with measurements I had on file
StampinUp Stippled Blossom Stamp Set to decorate (I just LOVE these Stamps)

Same measurement but made a lid (does not come off) for decoration
Papers were from a Pad ... with no name ... sorry!!!
Justrite Stamp Set for the little oval

Thank you for your visit, I really appreciate it
Till next time

Good luck with your album, I have started one for the first 4 weeks of my Great Granddaughter's life, I have got as far as making the book cover and the spines for the pages to be attached to, I will be checking out your links to the others who are making them, hopefully getting some tips, thank you for the links.

  16. Hi Patricia,
    I love your boxes! I go through loads of tissues in Spring early summer because of hayfever - should think about making pretty boxes like these!
    Enjoy your day!

  17. They are lovely and such a clever way of adding a bit of prettiness because I expect they're not allowed to put lots if stuff on walls etc

  26. Hi Patricia,
    better late then never hihi
    Your box covers are great. You are such a good paper crafter.
    Take care Maria xx

  27. Hi Patricia, love your tissue box! I love making mini albums and tend to put special holiday photos or occasion photos in them and leave them on the coffee table for a while, just to look at from time to time! I've used lots of methods, but recently bought the Eileen Hull Sizzix min album die, which I used for my coop album blogged recently - I love using it, hugs Carole Z X

  28. Hi Patricia, two very smart tissue box covers there, and what a great idea.
    Have a super Friday, hugs Erika. x
