Tissue Box Tutorial

Hi Jill here again thought you all might like to have a go at making this!

TISSUE BOX COVER
with thanks to Split Coast stampers

Box of tissues (I used a Kleenex brand)

Two 5 1/8" x 9.5" pieces of cardstock (base)

One 6 9/16" square piece of cardstock (lid)

Four 4 1/4" x 4" pieces of cardstock (base patterned layers)

Four 4 1/4" x 3/4" pieces of cardstock (lid side patterned layers)

One 4 1/4" square piece of cardstock (top patterned layer)

Scoring tool/Bone folder

Glue

Scissors or knife

Sponge for inking

Ink



Score the long sides of each of the two 5 1/8" x 9.5" pieces of cardstock at 1/2" and 5".




Crease the folds and glue to form box base



Score and crease the 6 9/16th" square piece of cardstock at 1" along all four sides. Cut the oval using an oval cutter. Cut each corner as shown in the photo and glue the tabs inside the lid





Sponge all the edges of the box base with the ink and then you are ready to decorate!


I chose some patterned papers from my stash cut them to the sizes above then glued them on the box.

Hope you enjoy making it.
