Tissue Paper Dispensers.....

Hello dear blogging friends: It's time for a new theme for you to play with over at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, this one is USE A PREVIOUS CHALLENGE and that means you should go to the tab at the top of our page and see the different challenges we've had since we started and pick the one you want to play with, I hope you have fun and join us in our gallery.
The theme I chose was "Anything but a Card" which was our Challenge #15 for December 4th. 2017.
I had so much fun with this challenge, you can check my projects HERE and HERE and of course check both posts from THE FLOWER CHALLENGE HERE for the December 4th. 2017 and HERE for the reminder post on December 16th. 2017 so you can have some ideas and loads of inspiration from all the projects my awesome teammates shared on those dates. 

Here are my projects for this challenge, hope you like them and come along to play, I made two because you can get make them out of one 8x11 sheet of cardstock.

As you can see, these are Kleenex dispensers for the travel size packages.  I saw THIS VIDEO and I thought these were so darn adorable and an easy and fabulous gift to give to teachers and coaches or just about anybody so, I hope you like them.

This first dispenser is decorated with pattern paper from Lili of the Valley (retired), the bouquet of Sunflowers is from a Power Poppy set called Sunny Harvest, stamped on watercolor paper, colored with SU markers and fussy cut. The sentiment is from another Power Poppy set called Olive and Oak Expanded.


The second dispenser is also created using some scraps from Lili of the Valley, the center flower is from a Power Poppy set called Simply Camellias, stamped with Antique Linen distress ink for the No Line Coloring technique and colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Here is a picture of the sentiments.

So there you have it, hope this inspires you to come and play along with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE , you can choose from any of the past challenges by clicking on the link at the top of the page, please remember to copy the logo of THE FLOWER CHALLENGE and the logo of the challenge you chose, explaining briefly which one it is in your post when you upload your card to the gallery.
Also, please remember to link your project or card to only 6 other challenges, including ours but most importantly, have fun.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want  you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
