TOMIC Challenge 12 - Magnolia Ink Birthday

Hello Magnolia Lovers,


Hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Today is the start of a new challenge over at TOMIC. This week we have a very special celebration, we are celebrating the birthday of Magnolia Ink Magazine. The theme of Challenge 12 - Recycling as Magnolia use recycled paper for the magazine.

There will be a very special prize from Magnolia to celebrate. Hope you will join us & don't forget to stop by the other Design Team members to see all their amazing creations.

I used a breakfast cereal box, the cardboard weight is perfect for my tissue box. I love the finished result and I will definately recyle more often.

Meet Nurse Tilda Magnolia's newest collection - Winner Takes it All
I have also used Magnolia Paper from their Sweet Rainbow Collection

Magnolia Doohickey Cutting Dies, Rose Leaf, Vintage Flowers & Leaves & Heart Swirl

The flowers are from both Magnolia & Wild Orchid Crafts.

For my tissue box I used a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers here.
My Cricut came in very handy to cut out my tissue box. I find working with imperial fractions a bit tricky, so I converted the fractions to decimal and loaded the dimensions, cutting them with a program called SCAL, making it so much easier.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing all your fabulous creations this week.
