After settling on a stamp set, I started looking for ideas on Pintrest for projects with a "get well" theme. In doing so, I came across a cute kleenex box that took me to a blog that included instructions on making one. Long story short, in the process I came across a completely different kind of kleenex box that included a tutorial video and I thought, THAT'S what I want to make. :) So I pulled out my Avonlea paper, Cricut Art Philosophy, ink pads and other supplies and got to work....and I LOVE how it turned out.
|I am submitting this project to Crafty-emblies|
|I am also submitting my pun creation to Paper Playtime, Hotshot Craft Blog, Stampin' for the Weekend and The Craft Place Challenge Blog.|
Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Papers: Avonlea, Chocolate CS, Slate CS, Colonial White CS, Brown Glitter PaperI chose not to adhere the image layer directly to the box, because I thought it would be nice for the recipient to have the option to be able to remove it after they were well and continue to use it as a decorative tissue box. So I used a loopy brad that I had in my stash and tucked it up under the ribbon so it would be hidden if the recipient chose to take the tag off.
Embellishments: Chocolate Baker's Twine, Brown & Tan Sparkles, Slate Polka-dot Satin Ribbon, Loopy Brad (Karen Foster)
So what pun will you use? What will you create? I'd love to see what you come up with. Playing along is easy. There are a few rules though.
- Use mostly CTMH products.
- Incorporate this week's challenge of using a pun.
- Link your project back to Heart 2 Heart Challenges from your blog post or online gallery. If you are linking from a blog, you must link directly to the actual post, not your entire blog.
- You also need to mention Heart 2 Heart in your blog post.
- Finally, we do ask that you consider turning off word verification, as it does make it easier (and less time consuming) for the design team to leave comments, as well as other visitors to your blog. ;)
Don't have any CTMH products? That's an easy fix! Simply contact your local Close To My Heart consultant (or go here to find one near you) or you can place an order by going to my website. If you'd like an Idea Book of your own, you can either email me (if you're local) or simply use the Paypal button in the side bar.
Until next time...
