I can’t seem to get enough of the Very Vintage host stamp set. Especially the large floral image I’ve used today…..and the last few days. At least today’s project is a little different in that it isn’t even a card. It’s a tissue box cover. I like to make at least one whenever a new catalog comes out. 

A tissue box cover comes in really handy when you want to match the decor of your room, or when you order a case of what you think are solid color boxes of tissues but instead receive a case with cartoon characters on them. Nothing against the cartoon characters, but they aren’t what I had planned on.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Coastal Cabana card stock (CS) cut to 9-1/2″ x 5-1/4″, then scored at 4-1/2″ and 9″ (2 pieces)
  • Bermuda Bay CS cut to 6-9/16″ x 6-9/16″, and scored 1″ from each of the four edges

Stamped with the Very Vintage stamp set:

  • floral image into Bermuda Bay ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • stamped image using a scalloped oval die
  • a scrap of Bermuda Bay CS using a large plain oval die
  • a scrap of Whisper White CS using a plain oval die and a larger scalloped oval die
  • a hole in the Bermuda Bay box top using a plain oval die
  • NOTE: the box top is wider than the Big Shot platform, so I folded in two opposite sides and used them to center the die

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • one score line at each corner of the Bermuda Bay box top to create tabs

Assembled the cover:

  • folded and burnished the score lines with a Bone Folder
  • glued the skinny tab on each Coastal Cabana piece onto the inside of the other one, to create the main box
  • glued the tabs onto the inside of the adjacent sides of the box top
  • glued the die cut Whisper White oval frame around the hole in the box top
  • the stamped image onto the die cut Bermuda Bay CS oval
  • slipped the box top over the box, gluing the inside of the box top sides to the outside of the box sides
  • glued the Bermuda Bay CS oval onto the front of the box, centering it between the bottom edge of the box top and bottom edge of the box
