From Sniffles To Stickles....

Altered Tissue Box
You all have really made my days with your wonderful comments and I thank you so much and welcome to my latest followers as well.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!!  I'm still on a mission to finish my projects for April and I think I will be done tomorrow with them all...WOO HOO! With that said, I'll be able to just sit back and relax and visit you all and thoroughly enjoy all of your wonderful crafting! You've been warned, I will be stalking and commenting VERY soon! :) I can hardly wait.  Anyway, here's another ditty I've been up to...

If you love to recycle and create altered art, we have the perfect challenge happening over at
Where our theme for two weeks is...
ALTERED ITEM AND/OR ANYTHING BUT A CARD
Here is my original tissue box that I started with
 I covered the box with my designer paper, slapped some acrylic blue and white paint over the top and allowed it to dry.  With a 3"x 3" white piece of cardstock, I punched a 1" hole and used this for the template to place the Stickles.  After cutting out the circles with an X-ACTO knife, I painted the inside with matching acrylics as well.
With the addition of a gorgeous butterfly and a few roses and the wooden letters that spell CREATE and one last handmade blue flower, the project was done!
I really love this little altered piece because now I can actually see the colors of the stickles, instead of being in a bucket and constantly pulling them out to find the right color.  SO happy with this stickles organizer.
We would LOVE to have you join us for our challenge at
Craft Us Crazy and you will truly enjoy the other DT's amazing altered items.
Our Sponsor for this challenge is none other than Meljen's Designs
Who will be providing the winner with a wonderful prize!

Hugs and Happy Creating...

This is so gorgeous and practical! And look at you getting all organized and ahead of schedule! You've already completed my birthday present and it's not for several months! heeheehee!
Love the whole idea as I am also having to pull everything out of a plastic shoe box to see the colors. But this is so pretty that it not only looks great sitting out, it also inspires us to use those stickles! Gorgeous work, my friend!

Lucky tissue box ended up with a lovely make-over instead of the eternal life in a landfill. LOL! xo
