Here is a great little project that was shared in one of the demonstrator Yahoo Groups I belong to. The idea came from Madeline Morcelo, and you can find her blog HERE. I was not signed up for her INKspirations4U-Summer Edition, so I did not have access to her projects and/or tutorials. But once I saw this adorable box, I had to make one. So, when my friend, Lisa, came over for a play date last night, I surprised her by letting her enjoy her time in the Rubber Room coming up with a pattern. Oh yeah, she was so excited~~well, maybe because she looked at her new catalog first... Anyhow, she's always a great sport when it comes to my crazy ideas, so she played right along. We took out a little travel pack of tissue and got to work. And here is what we came up with. I am not sure how close and/or different it is from Madeline's pattern, but it works!! Be sure to check out the post below for more photos and details too.

Lisa and I picked out some Designer Series Paper from the Noveau Chic DSP collection and then used some Basic Gray, So Saffron and Very Vanilla card stock to go with it. I added some little black brads to the corners of mine also. The sick little doggie is from the Stampin' Up! stamp set called Wellness Wishes, and he is so cute! The Get Well Wishes sentiment on the front of the box is from the Stampin' Up! stamp set called Teeny Tiny Wishes. We also used a little bit of the 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, which is available in the new 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog! The sentiment was punched out with the Word Window Punch and then layered onto a Modern Label Punch. We used the Watercolor Wonder Crayons to put the finishing touches on the doggie.

Once we got our "pattern" figured out, this was a pretty easy little box to put together. I will be sharing it with my demonstrator group tonight, and I hope they like it!

Again, thank you, Madeline Morcelo for the inspiration for this cute little tissue holder!

Are you going to be sharing your pattern? I saw it on some posts of people that took part in Madelyns class but I just can't spend the extra funds right now.

It looks so nice. I would love to learn how to make one. Are you willing to share your template?
