Tissue Is the Issue

(Second post today :)
It's tissue time :)

I kept this simple because this was my first ever homemade tissue box, didn't want to end up crying... But hello! That would have been very handy, first hand testing :P

Lid: Hole in the middle, then cream cardstock with small oval cut, then second layer with big oval cut. Looks nice and it is like a frame. then silverish thread around with finishing silver bow.

Sides 1 - 4:

Cardstock - Digi - Pencils - 
Die Cuts - Spellbinders and Sizzix
Embossed Rose - Ellison (not sure)
All bits and pieces from stash

It would be nice to find challenge or two for this...

Catered Crop - Follow-the-Recipe #8
Desert Island Crafts - Challenge #4 (NOT a card, wire, fancy fold)

As Dorcas mentioned, all boxes of tissues are NOT the same size. I measured box of tissues first, then made a template (again recycling some cardstock, good, good) and the final box. 


  1. What you talkin about girl? You got Mojo! Look at these project you are making!! Great job! Love the papers and the little pom poms on top! The papers are very springy I think it would qualify for spring (There have been lots of them) I thought there were a few more than one fold challenges out there.

  2. You did an awesome job, Annemaritta! I was holding my breath for you, hoping that your box of tissues would fit in it, cos you know , not all cube tissue boxes are the same size....I have found that Kleenex and Puffs work. But the store brand does not. (doesn't it figure??)
    Wonderful box! I bet you'll be making one for every room now!

  3. Beautiful box Annemaritta. I think if you go to Feline Playful, you can get the blog's address for Desert Island and Catered Crop, both due tomorrow, you should be able to join these. You had so much beautiful details. Hugs, dj

  4. Dorcas, I measured box of tissues first, then made a template and the final box.

  7. Pretty, veeery pretty!!!
    By chance I found a tutorial for "our" tissue boxes today - will have to try one myself... :-)
