Sale-A-Bration blog hop day 2

Welcome back or welcome from Jenny's.  If you've lost your way please check my post on Monday for a complete list of the Glitter Queens who are sharing their work with you this time.
Today I have a great project for a friend who is sick or just going through some tough or teary times.  I always carry an extra pack of these little Kleenex with me when I go to a funeral to give to them in the receiving line.  From the news I can see that the flu is bad in the states so if you have a friend or co-worker who is ill this is a perfect thing to cheer them up.
I love when another company does the work for me and Kleenex has done it for me this time.  Matching the colors and patterns that SU knew were going to be trendy.  I used Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit CS and cut a piece 4 1/2 by 7 1/4.  Then using the newest embossing folders...the hexagon one is from Sale-a-bration.  It is called Vine Street.  If you want this folder it is FREE when you place a $50 order.
This is the best time to buy things and it was during Sal-A-Bration in 2004 that I made my first SU purchase.  I've been having tons of fun ever since.
Score the cardstock on the long side at  2 3/8, 3 1/4, 5 5/8, and 6 1/4.  Emboss and seal it up with red line tape.  Tie some ribbon around your package of tissues to help the person pull it out of the sleeve and decorate.
I used the stamp sets Nature Walk and For the Birds.
I hope these inspire you to help make someone's day.

Now on to Tamara's.  Don't forget to check back tomorrow and thanks to everyone for their sweet comments on yesterday's post.  I'm so excited to have hit the over 30,000 page views during yesterday's post.  Just click on any photo to see it bigger and let me know if you have any questions.
See you tomorrow

  4. Great idea! Tissues are in high demand at our house with allergies and flu season in full swing. We are eager to to keep the germs down and what a pretty way to package an item of necessity! Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. I agree with Bridgett, Great idea!.......Going to have to case this project :) TFS
