Tissue Paper Confessions
I was wandering through the Dollar Tree the other day and discovered that they carry some really pretty patterned tissue paper. I'm a sucker for roses so of course I had to have this one with the white roses, among others. Well, okay, I bought every pattern they had, after all, it was the Dollar Tree.
Today I found this sturdy letterhead box in the recycle bin by the back door at the office. No, I am not too proud to dumpster-dive. I find some great boxes there. It's one of the undocumented perks at the big-girl job - LOL! I had been wanting a "just right" box to store by die cuts and this fit the bill perfectly. I covered the box in tissue papers and glued a rose border on the end so I can remember what's inside.
I used the same paper as a background for a new page in the altered book several days ago. I already showed you the page on the right but the one on the left is new. I love the way the text on the page shows through the sheer tissue. It creates an interesting background with little effort.
Hmm. Well, I have gone this far so I might as well admit I have a vintage suitcase filled with tissue paper. I buy it. I save it from gifts. Sometimes from other people's gifts. I use it to wrap my Etsy sales. I use it to MAKE stuff. I USE it. This means it isn't a collection - right??
