Hello my friends!
I have some exciting news to share with you today!
I've been asked by the Mix It Up Challenge Blog to join their team
and I couldn't be more excited! Thanks Leslie and team! This is a monthly Anything Goes challenge with some awesome fun TWISTS to inspire your creativity!! The twist is NOT required to play along but you might find some add fun if you give them a try! Up to you!
The October challenge is:
Anything Goes + Open Technique
(Use any technique you'd like and it would be fun
if you shared what technique you used with us!)
Here's the project I'm sharing to inspire you today . . .
I love making tissue box covers (you can find my instructions below my header in the TUTORIALS file). I didn't add any additional embellishments to the box because some ladies think they get in the way of the tissues popping up or are (as one lady put it) just another dodad to collect dust! LOL So I simply added a few Liquid Pearl Dots around the lid opening (as you can see a little better in the photo below) and stopped there.
To decorate my bag (purchased at Hobby Lobby), I used 2 sheets of 12x12 decorative paper also from Hobby Lobby. I discovered by cutting my designer paper 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 for the front & back of my bag, that leaves me with just enough to decorate a tissue box cover (LOVE when that happens! lol).
I've used an A6 card front to create the sentiment on the front of the bag.
By using a few dies from my collection, this bag came together quickly. I will probably add
some ribbons to the bag handle before using (or selling) this sweet gift set.
I do hope you'll pop over to the Mix It Up Challenge Blog and join in the fun!
You have until 6 PM EST the last day of the month to enter!
I'm so inspired by the rest of our amazing DT
and I can't wait to be inspired by YOUR project!
