Tissue Box cover and soap dispenser gift

Happy Friday!
I am very excited about sharing our brand new 
with all of you today!
This fortnight our challenge is
Make a Gift/Anything But A Card
Our generous sponsors are 
Here is my Design Team Project
For my "Gift", I chose to make a 
Tissue Box and Hand soap dispenser.
I used Fresh Brewed Designs,
 "Coffee Take Me Away" rubber stamp
to make a bold black and white design that would be 
useful all year round in a bathroom.
The tissue box tutorial is here
I actually paper pieced the coffee cup with the same textured Stampin Up cardstock that I 
used on the background.
I colored the rest of the image with my copic markers and used crystal effects on the water.
As you can see, I used half of a stamped image for the soap dispenser.
I simply adhered my stamped and bordered image to the strip of black card stock that I wrapped around the soap dispenser.
(I look for a soap dispenser with a flat front)
Black and White Gingham ribbon made the finishing touches.
Tissue box covers are fun and easy to make.
You could easily make covers for each of our celebrated holidays.
Now it's your turn!
Hop on over to

Design Team has created to share with you!
