No More Ugly Tissue Boxes

Tired of ugly tissue boxes??? Me too!!!!!
Let's make our own!!

 I have been wanting to do this for over a year but other projects took priority.  But every time I looked at that ugly tissue box in my living room, I cringed.  The new colors and designs are horrendous.  Why can't they just do tan or blue..... nope, they have to make them purple and psychedelic! 

I was so excited to have found a template online and thought I was "in business" but it called for 12 x 12 inch paper (who has that anymore?) and when I put it together, the darn tissue box would not fit in it.  So, I did some math for you and created a template that uses letter size cardstock.  Oh, and did I mention that I did the math???? You're welcome.

Items needed:

~2 pieces of 8½" x 11" cardstock (for the sides and bottom of your box)

~Cardstock cut to 6⅞" x 6⅞" (for the lid)

~Die to cut opening in lid such as large oval from Stitched Shapes but you can use others

~Stampin' Seal+ and Tombow glue

~Scorer and Trimmer

Here are the templates:

    The dotted lines are score lines and the solid lines are cut lines.



The video walks you through the scoring, cutting and putting your box together.  

Now decorate any way you want!!
