This card was a big hit at my Card Clubs this month.
Can you see that the tissue box is raised and not flat? It's actually about 1/4" thick with a real tissue inside. We also thought this might be perfect for someone who is sad; such as after the loss of a pet.
it's so fun to make too!
Make the box from patterned paper measuring 3" X 3 3/4". Score 2 lines on each edge; 1/4" and 1/2" on all 4 sides. Before you actually form it into a box punch out a large oval from the center. Then cut off the corners up to the deepest score line and form it in to a box. Add the folded tissue first and then adhere it to the card with either glue dots or Multi-purpose liquid glue.
