Santa's Swankie Hankie

Ok.....I need to go to bed!!

I had this project in my head all day long and I couldn't go to sleep until I tried it out...


I found some of the cutest Christmas themed tissues at Target's Dollar Stop!!
I'm SUCH a geek!!  I was positively GIDDY when I saw the designs they had.  I thought this would be a fun  little gift for those with sniffly winter noses.
Oh, come on!  You know you'd love to have some of these!  LOL

The hankie box was made using the Top Note Die for the Big Shot and a little strip of card stock that I measured to fit around the hankies as a little "box".  I embossed the lid with the Argyle Embossing Folder for fun....added a strip of Basic Black card stock for a belt.....punched out a "belt buckle" from Brushed Silver card stock....and, oh yeah!....the fur....The fur is made from a cotton circle face cleaning thingy that I can't remember the name of because it's so late!  

The card was made using MDS2!!  I created a "Tag" and printed it out here in my studio....cut it out....matted it on Whisper White card stock and then put it all on a Real Red card base.  The "belt" on the card is made from a piece of the 1/2" Striped Grossgrain Ribbon in the Holiday Mini.  Yep!  The one that is shown on a Halloween project!  Woot!  More ways to use that ribbon!!  I added a cutie patootie Designer Ribbon Slider that can be found in the Holiday Mini also.  Both projects were "sparkled up" by adding just a few spritzes of the Champagne Shimmer Paint.

WHEW!!

Now isn't that FUN???  Who knew tissues could bring so much joy??

Ok....I really DO need to go to bed.  I'm just punchy.  
(Mike is on travel and I hate sleeping alone....I put it off as long as possible)

Wishing you a magical day!! (Well...tomorrow....) 

Stamped Blessings,
