Tissue Box Cover

I've been wanting to make a tissue box cover for awhile now and finally got the chance to  follow this very easy tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.  I picked up this little Sad Wombat from Tickled Pink Stamps.  Doesn't he make you wanna hug him?

When I finished the box hubby, said "oh he's crying after watching a sad movie that's cute".  Even tho I was just using Tim Holtz's filmstrip I hadn't even thought of that!!  LOL!!  To me it was just a fabulous embellishment!!

It's going into these challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Signs of Spring.  Butterflies and flowers.....feels springy to me!!

Tickled Pink Stamps Facebook challenge to be a guest in an April blog hop!

Side views:

Back view - since this would be facing a wall,
I didn't bother wasting embellies on the back. 

Top view and I just love this Prima flower

Stunning project! I have yet to make a 3d project of any kind. I love your color choices. The filmstrip is perfect in your cluster. Yes, the wombat does look sad or..he could have allergies..that make his eyes water and cause him to need a tissue! I had a friend..he used to call his girlfriend a "Wombat" (cross between a woman and a bat) needless to say..he doesn't have THAT girlfriend anymore LOL. Took me forever to find out what a wombat actually was!
