Tissue Box House

Helloooooooo!!!!!  I first saw this tissue box blank at the Craft Trade Show at the NEC last year.  I did try to blag one but they wouldn't have it ...or rather wouldn't let me have it hahahaha!!!!  But at last I have got my mitts on one to decorate!  Over at The Craft Barn this week we are working on things to go onto a desk.  Guess whose desk this one is sitting on?  This was such fun to do :D



The front....

The back...

The sides...

The roof...




I love how the tissue looks like smoke :D  This box now has pride of place on my sideboard and the tiddlies love it!  Perhaps they will blow their noses now instead of using their hands hahaha!

Take care out there xxx

Cute tissue box, love the roof shingles and "smoke" (although it may take more than that for the tiddlies to really use the tissues!)

That is completely adorable! I love the finish on the roof tiles - the hearts are so sweet! - and the painty colours on the walls are just gorgeous. And yes, the tissue smoke is great!

We live in hope that kids will use tissues but what a great way to encourage them Karen.

I love that hare stamp. :)
