Heartfelt- Lilac Tissue Box Holder

Good morning!

This lilac collection is my favorite, but then I DO LOVE purple!
 The paper is just gorgeous and it really serves well
for this tissue box!
What a great gift to a friend especially one who is
sick and may need a little lift.
I don't like to have a cold but if I did I sure would like to receive
 something like this from a good friend!

Heartfelt Creations products used:

Other Products:
3-M foam tape, Copic Markers: E50, E21, E51, V01, V12, V15, YG03, YG23, YG17, R20, R21, B00, B21, B23, B24.  Spellbinders Scallop Oval and Oval dies, paper mache tissue box holder

For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at

Piant paper mache box white on all corners and inside oval opening.  Cut panels from Lush Lilac decorative paper for each side and the top (to get proper placement of oval opening on the top panel of paper, place paper on the table good side up, place tissue box holder upside down on top of paper and draw a line inside oval opening then take the paper out and die cut opening).  Spread good adhesive onto each side, one at a time, with a paint brush to make sure it is completely covered then place paper on adhesive and smooth until dry, do this for each panel of paper.  Cut border from white linen and cut to fit making sure to cut each side the same so that the corners match up.  Die cut scalloped oval and oval frame out of white linen for the top of box and glue in place.   Sponge randomly with glue on all sides and top then sprinkle Crystal Clear on all the glue.
Stamp and die cut scroll, blossoms, Lilac flowers and birds using purple ink for flowers and scroll and blue ink for birds.  Color with Copics or sponge color onto die cuts.  The Lilac blossoms were die cut directly from decorative paper so they are already colored.  Place some of the Lilac blossoms onto blossoms in the paper design.  Place scroll with sentiment on the front side with foam tape and add some Lilac blossoms.  Pick a side with less design and foam tape birds and Lilac Flower stem to it then add more Lilac blossoms.  On the side with the house, add a Rain Boots & Blossoms Lilac stem and flowers to it with a few Lilac blossoms as well, (see photos for placement).

Thank you for visiting today, I really appreciate your time.

Psalm 139:13-16
13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
    and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
    as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed.

Have you ever seen that fast motion video of a baby in the womb from conception to birth?  It is fascinating!  Watching the baby form and heart beat, eyes, ears, little fingers and so cute seeing the baby put his thumb in his little mouth, yes, still in the womb.
God has a plan for each and every life, life is so precious!!!

Oh my goodness mate how incredible does this tissue box holder look. My two least favourite colours in the entire world were orange and purple. You have created so many orange mini masterpieces over the years, that I have changed my mind about orange......I do believe you have now made me fall in love with purple! Epic!!!
