#4 Christmas Gift- Tissue Box Cover

Hi Gang,
Here's the 4th video to help you make homemade Christmas gifts.  Also, today is my birthday and I'm 57 years young!  Although today I feel 100 since I fell and hurt my back but everyday I get a little better!  
I'm sure most of you have made Tissue Box Covers either from the plastic canvas or knitting / crocheting them and even out of card stock.  My Tissue Box Cover is made with thick Chipboard!  When you make something from chipboard it last longer than with card stock.  I have one of these in each bedroom. bathroom and my craft room!  When I decide to change the Decor' I make another Tissue Box Cover to match!  I hope you enjoy the video and you can always e-mail me with questions you might have!
Well, that's all for now

Happy Crafting From,

This is one I have in my Guest Bathroom

#2 Christmas Gift "Tea Bag Caddy"

Hey Gang,
Here's #2  in the series.  This is a Chipboard Tea Bag Caddy!  This is a great gift and it's very sturdy and will last a long time!  I have made a few for gifts cuz a lot of people are changing from coffee to tea!  I love iced tea but I'm still stickin' to my coffee!  I guess I should try and design a caddy for the Krueg single cup machines!!  I know a lot of people that went to the single cup coffee makers and it's just not enough for me!  Anyway.... hope you can understand my instructions!  Oh,oh, oh, I just ordered the new  Fiskars ProCision Bypass Rotary Cutter!  I can't wait to get it!  It's supposed to cut medium weight chipboard and has "rails" to keep the cutting perfectly straight!  I have been cutting so much chipboard, it's killing my right hand!  I hope this will cure the problem.  When I get it I will do a demonstration of it cutting different materials to show y'all how it works (and if it's worth the price 120.00) Yikes....
Okay, here goes with the 2nd video for Christmas gifts!!!!
