Making Tissue Box Covers . . .

What a fun time I had this morning teaching some new friends how to make Tissue Box Covers. 

I always enjoy meeting new people and learning new crafts.  These ladies are all scrapbookers and work with Creative Memories products.  If you know anything about scrapbooking ... you know all about Creative Memories and what fabulous tools & albums they have.  That is actually where I started my love for paper crafting.

I let the girls pick from a variety of 'vintage Christmas' images from Nicecrane Designs to decorate the front of their tissue boxes.  Here is MY finished product using 'A CHRISTMAS CAROL'.  We all used the same designer paper for the box but used various images to adorn the front panel.

By precutting the papers for the tissue box & lid, that left us with enough time to also make an ALTERED TABLET.  The girls really thought they were a great 'gift giving item' and I was so glad to be able to share another project with them.

I sure hope the ladies had as much fun as I did today and I hope they'll come back again!
How wonderful to make new friends!!
Have a great day everyone!
