Tissue anyone??? Love this template!

I have been dying to use the Tissue Box template from Diane at the Stampavie DT Blog.
 I went a bit nuts though.. LOL Like I always do, when I look forward to doing a new project. I followed the template, Went really smooth and didn't take very long to put together. Then I went to the "decorating" That took me some time. I cut out panels for each side, inking and matting each of them, then sewing them each. The image is Sarah Kay - love her, I have colored with my Copics and then cut out with Labels Nestie 17, and again inked. Digging in my stash I found two Bosskutz dies, the flower and the flourish - I cut three of the flower in different scraps, on one of the flourish - stacked them all and for some "bling" I added six pink rhinestones. Then to the top decoration.... time again. But love how it came out.
 You think I over did it? LOL may have, but still love it! I created sewn panels for the sides, and with the same pattern the top. The center is cut out of oval Nesties, and a larger oval for the pattern paper. I then found another Bosskutz die, that is a corner scroll pattern. I cut four of them out - and added four more pink adhesive rhinestones. May be a bit busy... but I think I like it anyway.

This was so much fun to make! Even if I had to make a special run into town to get the right kind of tissue box. - I always buy the long flat kind - so I didn't have any to fit the template, but have them now, so I am ready for the next aahhh choo here!

Thanks so much Diane for such an easy wonderful template! I am thinking I might make a couple of more of these as gifts! What a wonderful "sick present" for a loved one with a cold.  HA.. do you guys do "sick presents"? My family does at times, it is a great reason to get yourself something you have been wanting when you are down and not feeling well. The bigger the "sick" the bigger gift you can ask for. At least that is my rule :0) 

Have a wonderful Wednesday -
