JustRite Friday Challenge #072

Over at they had asked everyone to include a 3D gift items or home decor items.
I had so much fun with this one! I was so inspired seeing all of the DT projects this week!
I chose to decorate a tissue box! I thought, "why not"! :) With allergy season upon us, I am sure this would make a lovely, and very practical gift for someone!

I had learned a pretty cool way to use tulle when I was surfing Youtube! I made a flower with it by cutting out layers of scalloped patterns! I cut at every corner of the scallop to make the shape of the flower! Then for each petal, you place the end over the flame of a candle very quickly and it actually will make the ends curl! It is so neat looking! It is really hard to see it, but it is under the flower in the front! It looks like fancy lace surrounding the flower! I just love the look of it! :) Anyway, I hope you enjoy my project as much as I enjoyed making it! Hugs!
