Snow Tissue Box Cover

We made this is one of our Christmas Classes in December.  I got the idea on Pinterest. 

Supplies Needed:
Box of tissue (I have made a few of these with different brands and they all work)
Two 5 1/8” x 9 1/2” pieces of Real Red cardstock (base)
One 6 9/16” square piece of Real Red cardstock (lid)
Four 4 ¼” x 3/4” pieces of Whisper White cardstock (base layers)
One 4 ¼” square piece of Going Gray cardstock (top layer)
One 4" square piece of Whisper White Cardstock
Four 4 1/4" x 3/4" Silver Glimmer Paper
Whisper White and Silver Glimmer Paper for the Snowflake
Scoring tool
Adhesive (I used sticky strip and snail)
Snowflake Die
Framelets - Labels Collection
Big Shot
Embossing folder ( I used the Pointsetta One)
Hearts Border Punch

Assemble Base: 
1.  Score the long sides of each of your two 5 1/8” x 9 1/2” pieces of cardstock at 1/2" and 5".

2.  Using sticky strip adhere side “A” on the first piece to side “B” on the second piece. Refer to drawing.
3.  Repeat with other side.  This creates your base. 

Assemble Lid:

1.  Score the 6 9/16" square piece of cardstock at 1" along all 4 sides.
2.  Cut each corner on the red lines (up to the scored line) as shown in the drawing below
3.  At this point I layered the Going Gray onto the center of the lid.  Then layer the Whisper White piece on the lid but do not adhere down.
4.  Center the framelit on the lid and fild up one of the sides so that it will git through the Big Shot.  Sorry I did not take pictures of this process.  You need to make sure that the paper is set on the platform just right so all will smoothly run through the big shot. 
5.  Remove the Whisper White piece and rerun that through the Big Shot with embossing folder. 
6.  Adhere the white piece to the top of the box lining up the Framelit cuts. 
7.  Run the four 4 1/4"x3/4" pieces through the Big Shot with the embossing folder. 
8.  Using the hearts edgelet punch - edge the four pieces of glimmer paper. 
9.  Adhere the edgelets and white edges to the lid sides.
10:  Fold and adhere all four tabs (marked “X” in the drawing) to form the box lid.
11,  Cut out the snowflakes using the glimmer paper. 
12.  Put the lid on the box and then put the snowflakes on all four sides. 

I love these.  Have since made a Valentine and St. Patrick's Day box.  Pics to come later.
