DH's birthday present

DH and I recently tried something different for our birthdays. See we're trying to save a little dough so instead of buying presents we have to be super creative. And this is the kind of thing I have wanted to do for quite some time. But because of all the time shopping takes, I haven't, until now. And it turned out awesome!

Here's a picture of just the card:

And here's all four sides of the tissue box:

It was so fun making it. The hardest part was taking a plain pine wood box from michaels and prepping is for the fun part, the photos and paper. It took lots of paint, lots of modge podge, but mostly tons and tons of sanding. In the end, it was worth it. It has a smooth sleek finish that coordinates nicely with all the embellishments, exactly what I was going for. And even better, he loved it!
