Tissue Box Frame

Hello Fall! Hello wet, runny-noses! Hello cold and flu season! I found myself buying the 12-pack of tissues at the store yesterday and it's only October. Luckily there are a variety of bright, modern prints to choose from these days.

Used facial tissue is not something to craft with, but the colorful printed cardboard boxes lend themselves to a plethora of projects. Here I cut apart a small square box of tissues, using the top panel and one of the printed side panels. Don't forget to tear away the plastic sheet from the opening. My daughter lent her artistic abilities for a custom birthday card for her cousin. I finished the side edges of the top panel with my scalloping shears to make it more decorative. Sandwich the 2 panels together with glue and you've got a cool, recycled craft perfect for cards or photo frames!
