DIY: Handmade Tissue Box

To make this craft you will need:

  • Waxed wire with the color of your choice;
  • Box of handkerchief;
  • Scotch tape;
  • Cardboard boxes;
  • Stiletto;
  • Pencil;
  • Ruler;
  • Common scissors;
  • Common white glue;
  • Glue stick;
  • Papers with texture of your choice and with colors or prints also of your preference.

Start by separating all the materials that you will use in your crafts. Measure and scratch on the cardboard the size of the top of the tissue box, but with a small leftover. Trim.

Measure, scratch and also trim the sides of the tissue box. Also with a little leftover for this part assembled by you to fit in the tissue box. Mount your carton with the aid of a piece of adhesive tape being positioned inside and out of the carton. Cut a piece of textured paper to the top of your carton. Cut the corners and position on the box.

Cut the inside of the opening and turn the paper envelope in, pasting them. Cut and glue the sides. Cut the cat’s tail, muzzle and ears into the papers. Also cut the whiskers and eyes on the waxed wire. Glue the inside of the ear, cut and fold the base, curving it, and glue it to one end of the box. To finalize your piece, glue the eyes, whiskers, muzzle and tail of the kitten. And it’s ready! Because this piece is removable, whenever the tissue box is finished you can remove the part of the kitten from above and position it in another tissue box. (Photo: dreamalittlebigger.com)
