Travel Size Tissue Box // DIY Gift

August 29, 2017

Hello fellow craft enthusiasts and welcome back! I have a unique 3D project that I am sharing with you all today. It is super simple to make and very versatile. When your friends and family are ill and you want to cheer them up, you usually send them a little card or note telling them to get well. This DIY steps it up by giving them a small and practical gift for anyone who has a little flu. These DIY travel tissue box holders are adorable! Let's dive in with the tutorial.

I originally saw this idea in a Split Coast Stampers video so do some research to find which way you can follow along most easily. Plus, there are other designs of this type of project that may work better for you. I started my project out with a 110 lb piece of kraft cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 11". You can make two of these using one normal 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock! Once you have it cut, you'll want to score it at the following places: 1/2", 3", 4", and 6 1/2". If you have a larger than normal pack size of tissues adjust accordingly. Use your bone folder to crease the edges. You'll see a box shape come together from these score lines. Before you glue it together, let's cut out the decorative panels. 

The decorative panels measure 3/4" x 4", 2 1/4" x 4", and 3 1/4" x 4". You can adjust the layers as you please. The last and final step before decorating is to punch the hole for the tissues to come out of. Oval punches or dies work the best, but I only happened to have a couple of circular options. I decided on using my Fiskars scalloped circle punch to make the hole for my tissues. This is where the fun begins! The sky is the limit when you think about how you can decorate these fun gifts.

I used some simple glitter washi tape strips and paired it with a wood veneer word reading "hugs". I kept this one fairly simple since I wasn't sure who I would be gifting it to. This is a really unique way to brighten an ill person's day. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Thanks for stopping by!
