Pansy tissue box cover

I finished another "at work" project. It is a pansy tissue box cover.
The pattern I have for it is actually for a tissue box cover and jewelry box set, but I just wanted to make the one thing to start with, then make the other if I liked it. I love how it turned out, it looks really great. The colors really pop against the black background.

This was my first time working with 10-mesh plastic canvas. I can't say that I'm a big fan. It was a pain to cut since the squares are so small. Then, I used 6 strands of embroidery floss, which goes through the skein of floss pretty quickly. I don't think I'll be making the matching jewelry box to go with this. Making those flowers was too much of a pain. I do have some other projects in mind to use with the 10-mesh, so hopefully I have a better experience.

 I am taking a small break from working on my Disney project. My best friend's birthday is coming up, and I have plans to make some things for him. I'm going to get them done first. They should be quick, though. I'll post them when I have them completed.
