Dr. Monday MD - Pass the tissues please...

Good morning my dears. Oh I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend, maybe some of you, like us, got a break in the bleak winter weather. If you didn't, then I hope you were able to stay warm and get some great crafting time done.

 Well, it is Dr. Monday MD again and that means that Patty Jo and I have some fabulous projects to show you using Magnolia Minis and die cuts. I have so many ideas and ways to use these delightful little figures that my hands can barely keep up with my thoughts. For today I've brought you another box. Not just an ordinary box, but a Mini Tissue Box Cover. I purchased the tissue box, and I have several more as well, from Michaels. They get them in a couple of times a year and I always stock up on them when they do. This Tissue Box is removable, so if you use up all the tissues you just get another box and cover it. Happy blowing! 

 I've chosen four images to decorate my box. These are all available from Diana at the Magnolia-licious store. Huge selection, in store credit, reduced prices and fast service make this shop the very best around. 

This first picture is of #3005 Gift From Heaven Tilda

 This little sweetie is #3021 Love Love Love Tilda.

 On the third side is Spitz Pocket Tilda #3093

Finally, I used Tripping Flower Tilda #3092
All of the images are from the 2013 Special Moments Collection.

Here are a couple of pictures of each of the sides of the box.

The top of the box is as fun to decorate as are the images to color.  Here is a bird's eye view of the top...

Here is a better view of the butterfly.  He is suspended on a curled stem off one of the flowers.  I wanted him to look like he was hovering.

I forgot to keep a list of all the ingredients I used, but most everything is from my stash.  I used a Martha Stewart Heart punch around the top of my box and Spellbinders Classic Ovals to mount my images.  The flowers were all sprayed with Pearl Glimmer mist.  I used generic cardstock, just what I had on hand in pieces that would fit so I didn't have to cut anything up.

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog. I hope that, like a spoonful of sugar, it's helped the medicine go down. Your comments are always warmly received...

 I have two posts prior to this one that I could not post to Magnolia-licious group as they did not contain Magnolia images.  If your interested please scroll back to see what else I've been up to.

Enjoying the journey,
Many blessings
