Pocket Tissue Holder ~ Fall Leaves (post #1)

I wanted to try one of these using double-sided pattern paper instead of using a solid with design paper accent panels as I did on my 11/2 post {here} .
Each way has its pros and cons.
For this one the design paper from one side {leaves} shows up a lot more prominently than the other side {orange/rust} so one side of your design paper is not seen much.
With the two-sided design paper you have to make sure your pattern works from all directions.
If the design in the paper has a design that would be upside down if the paper is turned then the front and side panels would have the image upside down.
With the solid background you can turn the cut out panel accents to look just right.
I used my brand new Spellbinder dies and my older, never used scallop punch to add the decorations to the holder.
Add a little sentiment and ribbon and this makes a wonderful gift for someone special.

*Sentiment stamp called Thinking of You from Hero Arts
*Scallop circle cut using the Spellbinders Lacey Circles die set.
*2 in. circle cut using a Marvy Uchida punch.
*1-1/2 in circle cut using a Fiskars punch.
*Opening oval cut using the Spellbinders Media Mixage Ovals One die set.
*Opening scallop cut using an EK Success punch.
*Design paper from the Martha Stewart 12x12 Classic Woodland paper pad.
*Stazon Timber Brown stamp pad.
*Ribbon from Celebrate It 360 (Michaels)
*Directions on You Tube by France Martin {here}

May your day always be filled with love.
