More Tiny Tissues and a Tutorial

I received a note from a fellow stamper/papercrafter from Splitcoast regarding my Tiny Target Tissues. She was wanting to make them for decorations for her son's wedding reception and needed the measurements. Now, one of my favorite things to do besides watching sports, movies, rocking out, crafting and hanging with my kitties, is to throw stuff in the trash! Well, I threw the measurements out. We won't mention how I accidentally threw out my teapot and flower dies from Papertrey Ink, I still cry about that. I plan on replacing them, but it's very depressing! I gave all of the little tissue boxes that I made to Mom and Laura, so I didn't even have one to measure. So, I decide that I will go to Michaels, because I saw them there, and will make one up to get the measurements. Well, I went to Michaels, and there was one Mary Engelbreit one left. But, someone opened it up and used some of the tissues! Who does stuff like that? If you need a tissue, why wouldn't you to go the ladies room and get a paper towel or toilet paper? It made me angry, like the day someone put their garbage from their car in my bicycle basket while I was at work. I'll never understand what possess people to do the stuff they do. Back to the post, they did have some little boxes of tissues that had monograms on them, so all is well. It doesn't matter what letter is on it, because it is going to be covered up anyway.

So, without further ado:

To make the sides of the box, you are going to cut two pieces of card stock 3 inches by 6 1/2 inches. Score at 3 inches and 6 inches.

To make the top, you are going to cut a piece of card stock 4 1/8 inches by 4 1/8 inches. Score at 1/2 inches on all four sides. Cut the little notches in the corners of the lids so the sides match up when you adhere it together. I used my Coluzzle to cut the hole in the lid.

Just follow the assembly instructions from the tutorial on Splitcoast.

Then, you just decorate it the way you want to! I made this for my friend Heather. She is celebrating her first Mother's Day this year. I bought a couple of extra boxes of tissues that I will give to her so she has refills.

Stamp: Dandelion Designs-Happy Mother's Day
Paper: October Afternoon, Bazzill, Recollections, My Mind's Eye
Misc: Tiny tissues, paper punches, half pearls, pop up dots, coluzzle, nestabilities

Ink: Versafine
