A Tissue Box...

Well... have you ever started a project and half way through it wondered to yourself, why on earth you attempted it in the first place... well, that's how I felt this afternoon when I attempted to make Kendall a tissue box.  I finally completed the dang project and was pondering whether I should showcase it or not as I am really not that chuffed with it... but then I thought, what the heck, I'm here to learn and every project can't be perfect... so here goes... be kind now...

I used sturdy kraftstock to make my box and then I set about making the panels to decorate it.  Flip, the top was a nightmare... I somehow thought I had measured correctly to get the nesties to match over the hole, but something went wrong, hence me having to put it at an angle instead of straight!  

I was so fed up with myself that I didn't even bother to decorate any further.  When my disappointment has worn off, I may attempt it again...

Kendall and I are attending a decoupage class at our local  Creative Talents shop on Saturday 9th October. We'll be learning how to make a Memory Box, so watch this space.  We can't wait!

That's it for this weekend's crafting for me.  I'm off to get into my jammies and find a comedy to look at...

Thanks for popping by, your visits make me smile... hugs Sharon x

hi Sharon i have these problems all the time but in the end i think your tissue box looks great sometimes its better to use less decoration i think just a few flowers looks so pretty and this one has a nice girly elegance to it xx

Very elegant box Sharon! Hey, the angled hole cover looks intentional, it adds that uniqueness we're all trying to achieve when creating "one-of-a-kind". That said, I think you've done great and your tissue box is a total cutie :-)

Hey Sharon. Dont you be hard on yourself. This is beautiful, and such delicate colours too. Like you say, we all need to learn, but there is nothing wrong with it sweetie, and I bet Kendall loved it too. Happy crafting my friend. Speak tomorrow.
Lots of love, Sandra xx
