Follow the instructions for cutting and scoring the tissue holder. Once your are done cutting out your pieces fold all score lines. Fold the line over closest to the top of the tissue box. This is where you will be punching your circle*. After the circle is punched you can assemble your box. Simply glue the long side pieces in place, glue works best for this. Insert the tissue and fold in the flaps. You are now ready to decorate your cover.
Using the Snowflake Wheel stamp the Bashful Blue Card stock and set aside to dry**. Stamp snowman on the white piece of cardstock enclosed in your kit about 1/3 up from the bottom. Color the snowman in and then cut him out. Place him on top of the dry Bashful Blue piece. Rip a piece of White Card stock and attach it to the bottom of the snowman with dimensionals. You will want to rip it to fit your snowman. This give the appearance of a snow layer. Now take the Liquid Glue and sporadically dot snowflakes to sprinkle glitter on. Your project is now complete.
The pattern is by Julie Ebersole and can be found here. These holders also make cute little gift boxes if you don't punch the hole in them!!!!!

* Be sure to punch the hole BEFORE you glue the box together.
** Craft ink dries slower than regular inks so let it dry before handling it.
