A Tissue Box for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around CHRISTMAS. While my Tissue Box may not look like a Christmas Project, it could easily be given as a Christmas Gift and it was made with Holiday Paper : )

It’s a wonderful time of year, and we are having lots of fun with our Christmas-themed projects. We are so excited to share them with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The tissue box fits a standard vertical tissue box perfectly.

The Designer Series Paper is from Brightly Gleaming.  The Copper Foil accents make the box really stand out.

I stamped the bird with Memento Ink and colored it with Pretty Peacock Stampin blends with a little color lifter for highlights.

To make the tissue box bottom:

  • Two pieces of 12×12 whisper white cardstock cut to 10 x 9-1/2.  Score on the 10-inch side at 4-1/2 and 9.  Score on 9-1/2 inch side at 5-1/4
  • Designer Series Paper 5-1/8 x 4-3/8.  cut 4
  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock cut at 4-3/8 x 4-3/8. Cut 2 of these.  These pieces are for the inside bottom of the box and the outside bottom of the box.  They provide decor and stability.

To make the lid:

  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock 6-5/8 x 6-5/8. Score on all sides at 1 inch
  • Whisper White 4-3/8 x 4-3/8
  • Pretty Peacock 4-1/4 x 4-1/4
