Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

Well today is the 25th of the month and time for another Rudolf Days Challenge over at


This month is not my DT month so I can enter the challenge.

The challenge runs from today till the end of the month.

The theme is Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas.

There is a lovely prize for the winner chosen randomly.

So here is what I made a Christmas Tissue Box.


I make these out of snippets left over from my boxes I make for the 8"x8" cards.

Then I cover them with paper and decorate as seen.

The red glitter card stock was also snippets.

Dies used are Carnation Crafts with vingrettes.

I must say there delivery is very quick as I received them the very next day.

Red Ribbon is Tonic from one of there monthly boxes, it's actually white spotted but I used the other side, but in hindsight I should have used the spotted side as it would have looked like snow.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges.

What a fun surprise to give someone. You need little gifts like these for special people in your life that you don't really exchange big gifts with and this fits the bill perfectly. Anyone would love to receive this beautifully decorated box and we all use kleenex. Great idea, Jenny.

This is lovely Jenny. I recognised the robin. I use quite a few Carnation Crafts images and vignettes, because they now sell a good range as digital files that I can use in my Silhouette cameo, so I don't have to risk trying to import dies. ou put so much thought into the things you make.Kate x

I love this tissue box cover in the plaid with all those berries, pine cones and beautiful bird. The pearls and snowflakes look so pretty too. Happy Rudolph Day to you!

Hi Jenny, I love this !! You always create fabulous tissue boxes, but this is gorgeous, I love all the embellishments you have used and the pearls on the top of the box are so pretty. You have taken a 'run of the mill' tissue box and have created a 'stunner' that anyone would be proud to have 'on show'.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
