Supply List for the Tissue Box Mini

Hey Campers!

Here is the supply list for the mini we are making this Saturday.

 Note: I encourage you to use your stash! I know some of you  have some amazing craft studios filled to the hilt with crafty supply goodness! I just fell in love with the Lyric line and I didn't want it to end up on a shelf unused this time.

Chipboard medium weight
Cardstock strips for reinforcing box 2 pcs. 1"x12" scored at 1/2"  and  2 pieces 3/4"x12" and scored at the 1/2 inch.
Patterned paper (I used the Prima Lyric line) about 4 pieces of 12"x12"

Liquid Pearls or (12) small flat back pearls
1 - Buckle ( I used the new Tim Holtz buckle)
2- small hinges ( I used the new Tim Holtz  hinges) I made another one using the Making Memory hinges and they work as well
A piece of the new Tim Holtz Mirror paper
One piece of Tyvek  4.5" by 1"
1 6" pc. of ribbon
1 eyelet that has a hole big enough for the buckle stick thingy to go through

A bunch of bits and pieces from your stash to decorate the box top. I encourage you to use your stash!
I used some Prima products: a resin photo corner, a resin shutter, 1 large flower from the Prima Lyric line, 2 small flowers from Prima Sunrise/Sunset line, wooden button Prima Lyric, Washi tape Prima Lyric and a chipboard butterfly 2 tags from Prima Lyric also.

1 small feather, 2 tiny buttons, small black clip and a rhinestone, from my stash.

You can choose to decorate the top like mine or just leave it plain I will leave it up to you. Friday morning I will be posting the cutting guide so you can have pieces ready to go on Saturday if you want.

Happy ScrappyCampin'!

ScrappyCamperSisters on Ustream March 30th!

Mark your calenders! Darcie and I will be streaming a class on Saturday, March 30th @ 10 a.m.! Just in time for your 2nd cup of coffee ; )

 Here is a picture of what we will be making, It is based on a vintage travel Kleenex holder, however this one houses a mini not hankies!

I thought it would look great on a nightstand or leave off all the embellies and tuck it in your bag to hold your tissues. You can get it done before Mother's Day it would make a sweet gift for that special mom.( "Hey Mom!")

It is also the perfect size to hold all of your ATC's from the TimeWarp Art Retreat if you are going, It houses 16 ATC's and 8 Tags for pics and journaling,

Supply List:
  1. Chipboard
  2. Patterned Paper (I used Lyric from Prima)
  3. 2 small hinges (I used the new Tim Holtz hinges, Love them!)
  4. 1 small Buckle (I used the new Tim Holtz buckles)
  5. 1 eyelet
  6. Mirror paper ( New from Tim Holtz too) The original Vintage Tissue holder has a mirror so I copied that but you can put a frame or a shadow box in the lid, My crafty friends are amazing artists so have at it!
  7. Flowers, tissue tape, canvas tape,wood button, chipboard elements all from Lyric line from Prima
  8. Perfect Pearls in Silver
  9. Bits and pieces from your stash to embellish with, you know you got it, so use it!
  10. Ribbon
Basic supplies: Paper trimmer, double stick adhesive tape (Scor tape, magic tape, etc), clear drying strong glue (like Glossy accents), hole punch, paper piercer.

Hope you can come camp along with us!

YAY! Tutorial for the camper was sent off to Darcie for proofing and adding of the photos so it will be here for free download soon!

Darcie and I are working on our next USTREAM projects. I am using the new Prima Lyric line, which I have fallen in LOVE over!!!! It is going to be such a cute vintage inspired mini I can hardly wait to share it! You will want to take it everywhere you go! You will all want to make one and I promise it will not be as "involved " as the camper! LOL.

Darcie is almost through with her prototype and sneak peeks will be coming to you soon, so please stay tuned.
