This is also our first posting day featuring our new monthly challenge, "Holiday Celebrations", and for the entire month we will be demonstrating ways to use Beacon Adhesives' entire line of products with Dreamweaver to create special projects in home decor and gifts of love. Here's mine:

I recently purchased a home.  In trying to decorate on a budget, I have found my ideas don't match my pocketbook!

I've been looking for a square red tissue cover for the bathroom.  I can't find anything less than $30 (budget $7.50).  So I decided to make one.

Cut 5 pcs of  chipboard 5 1/2" square each.  Cut 5 pieces of red paper; 4 - 5 1/2" x 5" & 1 - 5 1/2" square.

Using Beacon  3-in-1, Zip Dry and Gem-Tac we'll put it all together.
Cut hole in one square for tissues to come through.

Glue box sides together with 3-in-1 glue.
Using the three reindeer stencil LL467 Three Deer. 
 Paste in gold on each side panel.
Score top 1/4" on each edge.  Score sides 1/4" on one side.
Using Zip Dry adhear top first, folding the edges over the top.  Attach sides the same way.
Finally using Gem-Tac, draw squiggles over top and drip off sides.  Cover with glitter.
Set over top of tissue box and .......................

Tah - Dah!!!!  You have a custom Tissue Box cover.
Make sure you contine through the rest for more creative ideas.
