This is a little late Friday night project that I made, re-purposing and reusing a tissue box, which is also going to be this week’s WOC DT project..

Its an altered and decorated tissue box, aptly named “Aaahtishyoo”, and it will be going to good use too as I have now refilled it with tissues and its going back into work with me on monday ๐Ÿ™‚

I used the really pretty paper line from Papermania called Portobello Road and gorgeous wild orchid crafts red roses, ย if you are looking for a quick and easy project to get stuck into then this ticks all the boxes ๐Ÿ™‚

Supplies Used :-

  • Old Tissue Box
  • Papermania Portobello Road 12 x 12 Paper Kit including Diecuts
  • Wild Orchid Crafts 50 DEEP RED MULBERRY PAPER OPEN ROSES – 15mm
  • Scortape

You Made Me Love You .. .. .

Yesterday in my workshop I made a DT project for Wild Orchid Crafts, I’ll have the video up on Youtube later today, and the blog post on here too, by the time i’d finished the project last night the lighting was a bit dull to take decent pics .. I took one to give you a sneek peek, but i’ll take better ones soon ๐Ÿ™‚

I made the project live on Ustream and did record it from start to finish if you fancy a bigger sneek peek you can head over to my Ustream Channel ๐Ÿ˜‰

Also last night I made a little postcard, I love combining paper and fabric into the things I make ๐Ÿ™‚
