What I make with my hands comes from my heart. I'll try my hand using any art medium. Paper and fabric are my canvas; ink, paint and fibers my coloring agents. From trash to treasure I'll figure out a way to use it somehow someway someday.

I've been wanting to make a different sort of project for quite some time, something simple yet could easily be decorated for another theme, and could become a gift. Hmmmm...aha! This is it! I found it while wandering around the Splitcoaststampers site. I did tweak a few things and will make further changes now that I've constructed one as a test.
The tissue box cover (I used a generic brand so dimensions must be checked before you start cutting!) uses black and kraft cardstock, a Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder, Spellbinders snowflake die, grungeboard letters and grungeboard, brown and black Distress Inks, Tim's scallop border die, mitten buttons and some gold brads that were painted black with a Sharpie marker. A bit of Distress Stickles for some added glitz and I have a gift worth giving!
Thanks, Tim & Mario, for sharing how to make the faux printer's letters (s-n-o-w)!
I already have plans to make several more for my sisters and mom for the holidays. I'll be using lots of Wendy's and stamps Tim's dies for them. The covers need to be much brighter; my family wouldn't go for this dark stuff. Sigh.
Blogger, I give up. Why, oh why, can't you put multiple small images on one line?????? Grrrr.....
