Covered Tissue Box

Good Morning! I have a back to school project for you that would be great for a teacher gift or for your little student to keep on her desk at home. I decorated this box for my tweenager to keep on her desk in her room.
Using the tree image from Go Green (My Cute Stamps), I stamped it all around the box in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. To make my focal point, I cut out a white circle using Nestabilities and stamped the top portion of the tree in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with copics. I then stamped the tree trunk, colored it, cut it out and adhered it on the front of the box. I added the circle tree top by adhering with foam tape for dimension.

I made the top of the box blue for the sky and used an Oval Nestabilitie to cut the hole so the tissue can be pulled out. I added a decorative edge using the Martha Stewart Simple Scallop edge punch. I then added a few buttons on the bottom for some color and a splash of yellow in the top corner for some sunshine.
Link up your Back to School project for a chance to win a prize from the ABC Toys and Crafts store where everything is 10% off every day and most clear stamps ship free in the US!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
