Superhero Tissue Box Cover

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner.
I hope your week is going well for you.  It's been a busy one around here....busy and beautiful! We hit 89 degrees here yesterday!  Sure makes me wonderful what the temps will be like in a couple of months, but right now I'm loving it!

I'm really glad that you stopped by today, because today is my first "official post" as part of the Design Team over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!  If you aren't familiar with Lisa's Designs, you really need to check them out -she has some of the cutest cut files, digital clip art and digital papers!

For today's project, I decided to make a cute little tissue box cover for my grandsons using Lisa's Superheroes Trio Cutting Files.....

* I started with a paper mache' tissue box cover from Michael's and sprayed painted the box red.
* The first side is decorated with this handsome "Super Man" - isn't he a cutie?

* Next comes "Bat Man"! I think he looks pretty awesome too!

* The last 2 squares were decorated using the Superhero Badges Cutting Files.  The black zig zag running around the box is from the Borders 3 Cutting File.

* For my sentiment mats, I took the base from the Superhero Badges and stretched it out a bit, sizing it to create the perfect mat for my BAM! and POW!  They really remind me of the comic book graphics!

Here's a view of the top of my tissue box cover....

* I just punched a few stars with an old paper punch I had on hand to finish things up!
And there you go...a Super Hero Tissue Cover for my Super Grandsons!
As always, thank you so much for stopping by today! I always look forward to your visits and sweet comments!  Be sure to stop by the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Blog to see the amazing creations the other Design Team Members have put together for your inspiration!
I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon....
