DIY tissue tape and mini holder

I did it again! Can't resist to be inspired from the week's projects on Paperartsy blog. The uber-talented Darcy Wilkinson showed us how to make your own tissue tape and how to build a gorgeous holder here and here. But...since I don't have any wooden spool nor the room in my craft cabinet to keep an holder so big, I made the smaller ever tissue-tape holder. And I love it!
I started from here, the cheapest masking tape from the market, some Fresco Finish paints and stamping:
Anche stavolta non ho resistito ai bellisimi progetti creati e spiegati dalla bravissima  Darcy Wilkinson sul blog della Paperartsy . Crearsi i propri colorati tissue tape e persino un raccoglitore. Ma non avendo ne' rocchetti di legno, ne' lo spazio per un simile contenitore nel mio armadio, ho optato per la versione più piccola possibile, nata da una bachechina e dai bastoncini per le orecchie.
Sono partita dal più economico scotch di carta:
And my mini mini holder, out a mini shadow box and some cotton bud:
La bacheca prima:
 
 
 
 
 Done!

On the back, where I used the tissue tapes
Il retro:
It's smaller then the paint bottle!
E' più piccolo dellla bottiglietta di acrilico :-)
