12 Days of Christmas - Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!!
This hop will take place November 25th through December 6th and the new postings each day will be posted by 8 am eastern standard time. This hop will be full of wonderful ideas and inspiration to get you well on your way of creating all of those beautiful Christmas project. 

This is an awesome way to get a lot of your Christmas cards, and scrapbook layouts finished, home decorations completed and maybe even be inspired to create something using a new technique that you have never tried. There will be a new project posted each and every day by all the wonderful amazing ladies in this hop. Also each day we will have a guest designer or two for you to visit. Lisa, our hostess, will be giving away some wonderful blog candy each day of the hop from the amazing sponsors that we have for this hop. She will also be posting all the winners from this hop on December 10th. Everyone has a chance to win including the ladies participating in the hop and even the guest designers and the sponsors. 

At the end of each post we will have a list of all the sponsors who are sponsoring this hop all you need to do is click on their name to go to their sites and check out all the wonderful sites. We want to thank each and every one of the sponsors for their generosity. It has been greatly appreciated.

The bog begins at Lisa's blog, Honeybearz Designs.  You should have come from Alicia's blog at Golden Goddess Designs.

For Day 3 of my Christmas projects, I was inspired by one of my roommates from Close to My Heart Album Retreat.  For our rommate gift, she made us each one of these:

It's a tissue box holder!  It fits right over a square tissue box - cute right???  My rooommate, Linda Case, a CTMH Consultant gave each of us one of these and I just fell in love with it!  Unfortunately I lost her instructions on how to make it so I had to hunt around for some help.  Here's a link to a YouTube video that helped me out: Tissue Box Tutorial.  I did change it a bit but it really helped me figure out what to do.
