Bearlymine Designs Challenge Twentytwo - "Anything but a Card"

Good Morning Everyone, well weve now reached our Twentysecond Challenge at Bearlymine Designs Blogspot and for this one we want you create "Anything but a Card" so it means you will have to start planning something different for it, and this time we are being sponsered by the following companies :-

Crafty Emma - £10. Gift Voucher

Wow some really awesome prizes on offer and Im sure you will want to try to win one of them, and heres my choice of something other than a Card.
I deceided to create this tissue box cover as the boxes these days arnt anywhere near as pretty as they used to be. I used a template I found on "Sarah Hallam, Peerless Designs" website and adapted it to fit my own tissue box size by printing the base sheet onto white card using Donna's Bearlymine Designs "Summer Roses" digi paper set and then cutting it out to the template I had printed onto a sheet of white paper.
I then folded it into a square and around the bottom I created a border with one of my larger Martha Stewart border punch and some yellow pearlescent card and wrapped it around the bottom of the box cover. The lid was also cut from a template and this was also covered with a piece of the same "Summer Roses" paper and then around the cut out on top I have used a yellow oval which was cut with two Nestabilities and stuck around the tissue box opening. And around the lid edge I have stuck a trimming of lace and ribbon and tied a bow in the centre of one side.
To finish of I have created a flower spray with several different sized coloured roses and pearl sprays stuck to the corner with some punched out leaves and silicone glue.
Now that youve seen my box do please go and visit the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you and perhaps it will inspire you to take part in this "Anything but a Card" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

You know how some houses have those decorative towels that are never to be touched, even though they are right by the sink and one would think you should them, but everyone knows not to? Yes, I am one who has "rigged" my kitchen like so. Well, this tissue box is gorgeous and if it were in my home, it would sit right near those, "never to be touched but looked at only" towels. I'd let everyone marvel over it, but never touch it. It's GORGEOUS!! Lovely design and creativity. :)
Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Squirrel & The Fox and Make It Monday!
Good luck to you...
