Bless you!

Crafty Ribbons new owl ribbons are lovely - happy, colourful and cute.  I wanted to make something that I could use a long length of the ribbon to really show it off - I really didn't want to cut it up!!  So... is a tissue box!

I took a regular tissue box and measured it, then with a sheet of 12x12 paper I made a sleeve to fit over the box.  I attached mine underneath - if you do this with repositionable glue you can simply take the sleeve off and stick on to a new box when the tissues run out.

I decorated the top with a strip of owl ribbon mounted on to some lilac paper.  Then, and I was really excited by this, I used rub ons to write bless you on to a flat button.  I didn't know rub ons worked on buttons, but they do and they are really effective!  I glued the button on with pin flair glue gel.

This is on display on Crafty Ribbons exhibition stand.  It's been to Glasgow and Olympia and I think the NEC too :)

Thanks for stopping by!
