Make your own Tissue Holder

Ok - this might look difficult - but it really isn't!  Just follow the steps in order to avoid some easy mistakes!

Step 1 - Cut your card stock to 18cm x 19cm.  With the 19cm side at the top, score down vertically at 1cm, 4cm, 15cm and 18cm

Step 2 - Rotate your card so that the 18cm side is at the top.  Score down vertically at 1 cm, 6.5cm, 9.5cm and 15 cm

Step 3 - cut 2 pieces of dsp/cardstock  10.5cm x 2.5cm and 2 pieces  10.5cm x 5cm.  Glue these to the panels (it should be easy to see where each fits.

Step 4 - Turn the card stock so that the decorated panels are one on top of the other and with the 1cm edge at the bottom.  Using an extra large oval punch, insert the card stock into the punch roughly in the centre and punch out a hole in the centre of the first decorated panel.

Step 5 - Using the diagram to help you - snip into the tabs at  either side of the box.  I have shaped some of the tabs by cutting diagonally.  you will need to remove some panels.  Take your time and do one at a time!

You should end up with something that looks like this!

Step 6 - Use a bone folder to crease your score lines.

Step 7 - Decorate and cut a panel/shape of your choice that will cover the oval opening.  I used Wild about Flowers stamp set and lots of Labels framelits.  I chose to heat emboss my image.  I will post a quick technique post explaining how you can heat emboss with ANY Stampin Up dye based ink pad tomorrow.

Step 8 - Attach your panel to the front of the box using a brad.  This should allow your panel to swing open and allow access to the tissues!

Step 9 - NOW add glue to the one cm tab and join the two ends together to create a box!  Fold in your tabs at both ends.

Step 10 - To stop your panel swinging too freely, place a small decoration at the base of the panel so that it just catches - I punched some flowers with the itty bitty accents punch and added a few basic rhinestones for some bling!
Now add your tissues!
