Christmas Kleenex Box
Cube box of tissue
2 - pieces of card stock the same color (bottom)
2 – pieces of Christmas Designer Paper
1 - piece of different color card stock
Embossing Folders (Christmas or Winter)
Pencil (not pictured)
Big Shot (not pictured)
Embellishments (not pictured)
Cut your two pieces of card stock for your base 5 1/8 x 9 ½. Be sure to save your scraps to use later. (you may want to verify the measurements of your box of Kleenex)
Put your two pieces of card stock horizontally on your scoring tool and scor at ½” and 5”. (you may want to verify the measurements of your box of Kleenex)
Fold your card stock on the score lines and then attach the two pieces together. This will create the bottom of your box.
Take your second colored card stock and cut it 6 9/16 x 6 9/16. This should be a perfect square. Keep your scraps from this card stock for later.
Score your square piece of card stock 1” on all the sides. This will give you squares in all four corners.
Cut one side of each corner down to the score line, see below.
Fold your score lines and tabs up like the picture.
Trace an oval shape from one of your Nestibilities onto the center of the square card stock that is your top.
Attach all the tabs together to make the top of your box.
Put adhesive on the inside of the cover and attach it to the bottom. Red tacky tape works well here but regular adhesive is fine too.
Cut a piece of 4 ¼ x 4 ¼ from your scrap card stock from the top.
Take a die cut of your choice and cut an opening in your square piece smaller than the one on your top.
Take your designer paper and cut two pieces 4 ¼ x 4 and adhere to two sides of your bottom.
Take an embossing folder (Christmas or Winter) and emboss the top piece of the card stock then attach to the lid.
Take two pieces of your base card stock and 2 pieces of your designer paper and cut them 4 ½ x ¾.
Emboss the two sold colored card stock pieces then adhere them to the top alternating the designer paper.
Step Seventeen: (optional)
Take your sponge and chalk and color the embossed image.
Cut 2 pieces of white cardstock 4 ¼ x 4 to stamp your image and/or sentiment
Decorate according to your liking and attach to your box.
Finish your box with embellishments of your choice then put over your box of Kleenex. I used die cuts for the sled and the snowflake.
