** THIS IS MY SECOND POST FOR TODAY **

Here I am again, playing catch-up!! I’m back to share my project for this week’s cupcake craft challenge. The lovely Donna has set the theme this week and she has chosen “things with tails”, which is pretty self explanatory I think haha! I decided to make something other than a card this week and attempted to make a tissue box cover, which I’ve admired on many talented crafter’s blogs. It’s ok for a first try but there are things I would do differently next time. Here is my project:
I’m sorry for the mega amount of photo’s but I wanted you to see the box from all angles. I followed a tutorial on splitcoast stampers and you can see it here if you’d like to try it yourselves. I have used two super cute images from DigiStamp Boutique, the cute kitties are ‘Olivia & Archie’ and the cute mouse is part of a set called ‘cat accent doodles’. For a change I haven’t used any designer paper but embossed all the surfaces with 3 different embossing folders. I added a ‘lace’ punched edge and some punched flowers for a finishing touch. I have to say that my poor photography skills haven’t helped me show it off to it’s best as it looks quite pretty IRL and I think I’ll be making more of these in the future.
Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will receive a $20.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store.
Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ prize and our sponsor for June is Little Claire Designs and one lucky winner, chosen at random, will win a fab 6 x 6 paper pad and two stamps.
The rest of the cupcakes have created gorgeous samples once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us each week.
