I made these covers for boxes of tissues (was going to give measurements but all makes differ)I measured two sides and added an inch(2 of these)and glued together,then I made a lid to fit and added an inch all round and scored for the sides.Before I glued it I cut an aperturein the top using the perforated top that you take off,then make up lid and glue to the sides-then slip in the tissue box to make it easier to make sure it sticks.I used an Adorning square die for the top and used a Floral oval die to cut out the centre of the square to fit aperture then added this with 3-D foam.I then decorated the sides with K&C papers.Used the Floral ovals(2sizes) to fit the sides again using 3-D foam,then added the butterflies(craft mag freebie die),then added ribbons from stash and made flowers for top with Tonic punches and card candy centres.

This Sunday morning is a new challenge at 613 AVENUE CREATE as always it's anything goes with an optional extra a photo inspiration and the sponsor is SHELLY'S IMAGES.This is only my second post for 613 Avenue Create so did'nt have a Shelly's Image so have used a Bugaboo one of my own "Gus-fish whisperer"coloured with promarkers and glossy accents on glasses and fish,the background is chalked,the gorgeous green card is from Papermill direct,paper from K&C.I also used the papers to make tea-bag embellishments on border.
Morning everyone hope you are all well and the sun is shining for you.Thought it was about time I made a male card -well someone has too lol.The image is an old box camera from a CD called "Through the Lens-men" appropriate!I printed it twice and decoupaged the camera part,the paper is K&C and of course it's a Z-fold upright card.
My card today contains more green than I intended but when I tried to change most of the green for pink,Ellie said the green looked better so am going with her judgement as she soon tells me if she doesn't like any card I make.I wanted to catch Mos digital challenge this week too.For the pink embossing parts I mixed three colours of pink embossing powder,a holographic one and some bits of glitter-not sure if it worked or not.Image coloured with promarkers and glamour dusted.
