Swankie Halloween Hankie!

I was shopping at our local Cub grocery store on Tuesday and amongst the Halloween candy I found these adorable tissues. Well, I just couldn't pass it up! After all it was only $1.00. So sad isn't it when a box of 250 tissues is under $2.00!!! But those don't fit in this cute holder and they are not printed like these are!!! There, just justified my purchase. Think my DH will buy it??? LOL

I used the "Autumn Harvest" set by Stampin' Up! The base of the card is Pumpkin Pie card stock. I used the Pumpkin Pie ink pad and the leaf stamp from the set and made the background of the tissue box. I followed the pattern for scoring, punching and cutting. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and used my blender pen to add the colors. I masked the pumpkin and added the leaf. A pumpkin alone was cute too but the leaf just seemed to make the pumpkin pop more. I layered it on Chocolate Chip card stock and attached it to the front of the tissue box. It still looked like it needed something so I added the bow and it was just enough to finish it all off!!! Such a cute and fun item to make. I would think it would be a big hit for gift giving, craft fairs, hostess gifts, customer appreciation gifts or just to put in your purse or tote.

You can view my other tissue holders by clicking here. The original pattern was designed by Julie Ebersol, Juliehrr on Splitcoast. Click here to go to the link to her post and within that post is a link to her pattern. These are such a fun item to make.

I'm posting a bit early today. I have a group of stampers coming over tonight. I'm SO looking forward to it, it's always such fun!!

Thank you for stopping by,

i just found your blog by following a link from beate's blog, and this is a way cute project. however, i've tried several of the links from several of your posts--the Santa one is SO adorable!--and yet i cannot get the instructions. SCS is telling me i don't have whatever is necessary to access this page. i've also tried julie's blog, without success. any suggestions? i love 3d projects, and this one's a winner!
