Spellbinders Kleenex Box

 
This is a Kleenex box I made for the Spellbinders contest.  I did not make it in this year, but I will try again next year.  I need to grow more in my card making, and I know that.  This will make a perfect gift for a girlfriend who has been ill.  I took apart a Kleenex box and traced it on to the back of this pretty red foiled card stock.   I made all the folds using a ruler, and put it back together again.  I decorated it with a lot of my Spellbinders products.    I used the Spellbinders Impressabilities Flourish to emboss the box itself.  The Spellbinders Petite Oval Scalloped was used to make the hole in the top.  I taped a baggie inside the hole firmly on all 4 sides of the opening, then I cut a slit in it just like the original Kleenex box had.  The edges are decorated with Spellbinders Grand 12" Classic Lace Border and silver foil card stock.  I also used the smaller inside piece of the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Pendant Shapeabilities to decorate the 4 sides.  I love how the foiled card stock takes to the Spellbinders dies.  If you go to the Spellbinders blog you will see some of their work with the Spellbinders foil which is much sturdier than my card stock.  I think my friend Peggy will like this.  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
