"Merry Christmouse"



Finally! I've been trying finish this tissue box cover for the last several days. One thing or another kept pulling me away from completing it. I'm happy to say I've finally managed to get it finished so I could share it with you. This is my first attempt at a tissue box cover and it was a lot of fun! (I think I'll be making some more of these). I used the newly released "Merry Christmouse" image from McMahon 5 Designs and cut it out with my heart shaped Spellbinder die~cuts. Then lots of texture with Cuttlebug Snowflakes and Stickles Ruby Slippers to accent. I also went a little crazy with Stickles Icicles all over the background to give it a really sparkley~icey effect. I'm going to give this to my in~laws next weekend when we go over for our annual Christmas Tree decorating day at their house.
