Tissue box covers



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.
