Yes, more Tissue Boxes


Yes, I know I know, you're sick to death of tissue boxes!!! Well I will be too if I keep at it!
I think I'm done, for now. OK, well maybe one more for my mum.....
Anyway, can't remember who does this gorgeous safari embossed and glittery paper but I think it made a pretty awesome tissue box. Each side is individual and I purposely did NOT use the snake picture cos some people are funny like that. Oh wait, there might be a bit of his tail on the lid....whoops


Anyway, here's a few views of the other sides:
(and btw, that smudge is part of the distresssing on the paper, I did NOT have chocolatey fingers!)



Not quite sure what this animal is (below) but he's pretty exotic, right?



And one more! This one is more feminine but in my opinion less interesting.
 No snakes to be seen. lol




OK, no more tissue boxes! That's it for today. :-D
My safari box fits these challenges:
ONe Stitch At A Time: Something For The boys
Shannons Sentiments: Unusual Fold
Delicious Doodles: A 3 Dimentional Project
Sugar Creek Hollow: Anything Goes
Paper Pretties: Masculine
Allsorts: Make a gift box
Gingerloft: Diecuts or punches (in lid of box)

Thanks for visiting!!

Hi Dorcas, what a nice tissueboxes you made.
They are different by the different use of papers but both so pretty.
We don't have that size of boxes overhere, otherwise I made one.
Congratulations with your winning card. (brothers).
Hugs Marianne

Wow - these are fabulous Dorcas - I wouldn't be able to choose (not that you're asking me to - how cheeky am I !!), as they are both totally gorgeous in their own way. Have a happy week -

I LOVE these! You have done a fabulous job of making such a nondescript item as a box of tissues into a work of art! You should do a tutorial because I want one of these! LOL! Thanks for playing with us this week at Amber's Crafts and Stuff. I hope you'll join us again very soon.

KristensCreations said...

Hi Dorcas! I tried to post the other day, then my computer went berzerk for some reason and the comment didn't take. I LOVE these boxes!! Really!! I want to make some more for my house. I love the animal print, however I am particularly partial to the other pretty one! ;) wink wink! Haha!
Love ya!
Kristen

Linda w said...

Both fantastic boxes in their own way. The second very pretty and the first a lot of fun. The exotic you are unable to identify is a tapir wearing a party hat, why wouldn't he party when he's on such a great box lol. You made top pick's on Amber's Crafts and stuff. I wasn't able to get to the last 10 (we tried to do them all last week) so didn't even see you'd entered lol. Well done, hugs lin
