BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE 57.......Y IS FOR YEARS AND OR YELLOW

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Today is the start of another
and the theme this time around is Y for years and or yellow.
So as I had something made up in yellow I thought I would enter it, but I don't have any of the years part on it.
It's another one of my tissue boxes which I have been making for the stall I am doing at my daughter's works fund raising event.  



 These are so easy to make.
For the base it takes 3 A4 sheets of card.
I buy my tissue boxes from the supermarket starting with T, and they measure just under 5" tall, and 4" one side, and 4 and half inches the other side.
I cut down 2 A4 sheets of card to 5" and then I score at half an inch, 4 " and 9 and half inches on my Hougie board.
You cut off the rest that is left over, and glue together.
The lid is slightly over 6" by slightly over 6 and half  inches, and you score one inch around all sides, and this makes the lid.
Don't forget to make your aperture before you glue the sides of the lid as I have done that a few times. LOL.
Then it's ready to decorate how you like.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time as I do know time is very precious to all of us.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

What a lovely gorgeous way to present a very necessary item! The yellow is so cheery, and love all the gorgeousness you've got on every side of this pretty box. (delightful way to display the butterflies). Jewels to enjoy each time you pull out a tissue. These should be a big seller at your stall, with all the wonderful decorations you've applied. Also appreciated the instructions on the how-to! Take care, big hugs, and TFS
