Flowers for the Nose - Tissue Box Cover

Hello Friends and Fellow Crafters,

This is Denine from Pumpkin Spice, I am so excited to share a couple of my crafting projects with you today, here on Pam's awesome blog The Bug Bytes.

1st is a fun little project that takes very little time but really spruces up that plain old tissue box.

Pumpkin has had a rough Spring with bug after bug.. so it is the bug BITES at our house. Hehehe

Anyhow, I thought she would just love this little addition to her nightstand, and I was right. :)

I used a tissue box cover that had been given to me in a swap as a guide, which Pumpkin loved a little TOO much!
Recipe –
Paper -
- MME “Stella & Rose” - "Special" Fine Floret Paper
- MME “Ohh La La” – For Him “Frivolous” Paper (retired)
- Flowers Various cardstock scraps
- Base ‘Pink’ recollections cardstock
Clearsnap® Smooch™ Accent Ink Spritz Spun Sugar
Spellbinders Nestabilities Scallop Circle Small for the opening
Buttons & Brads – from stash
Ink – Colorbox pigment ink – Thistle, Oyster White, Chiffon White and Rosebud.
Recycled items – Trim, and Angel and Birdhouse.
Adhesive – Beacon Zip Dry

Cut the base at 9 ½ x 5 ¼ - 2
Score both at ½ and 4 ½.

Cut top at 6 ½ x 6 ½
Score at 1 inch from each side
Cut 1 score line on each side into the adjacent score line
Center the Scallop die in the top and run through your machine. If you don’t have an die cutting machine you can also cut by hand or with a cricut/gypsy, etc.

Cut layers for base at 4 x 4 ¼
Cut top layer at 4 x 4 and 3 ½ x 3 ½
Cut 4 – 4 x ¾ and 4 – 3 ½ x 5/8 for the layers on the top

Flowers are multiple sizes of flowers cut from Schoolbook Plantin images with cricut.
I got my inspiration for the flowers from Colleen at http://www.scrappycol.blogspot.com
I varied them by using buttons and brads in the center.

And as you can see, she used all the tissue already.

The other project I want to share is something I am kinda proud of... I made if for my Mom. I know it could probably use more 'fluff' but I wanted to give her space for that. Anyhow, it is a mini album that I finally FINISHED. Yes, FINISHED. I am good about starting but never completing. I purchased a really awesome design instruction plan, let me tell ya, well worth the money. Anyhow, I will put the story behind the Mini Album on my blog, Pumpkin Spice, if you would like to read. Here are a few pics.

It is actually a Double Mini Album, 1 on each side. With 5 pages which actually turn out to be about 20 pages for pic and 15 journaling areas on each side!!  Mega Space! Super fun to make!

Well, Thank you again Pam for letting me share my project on The Bug Bytes!

Happy Crafting!!
