Travel Tissue Holder Box using Playful Penguin

I had one of my Bingo events Saturday celebrating the Holiday catalog.  It was so much fun.  I'll have some pictures at the end of this post.  Along with Bingo games and prizes from the Holiday catalog, we have several Make & Takes.  I want to share one of them with you today.

Playful Penguins Tissue Box by Jo Anne Hewins

I got this box idea from Angie Juda of chick n scratch.  It's her box #4.  Find the template here.  The box fits the tissue 3 pack found at Walmart.  You will need a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock.  You can get 2 from a sheet.

Outside measurements are 4 1/4 x 11 3/4.  Score on the portrait side at 1" on both sides.  Score on the landscape side at 4 3/8, 5 3/8, 9 3/4, 10 3/4.  Cut away the shaded areas.  Round the corners on the lid.  This diagram is directly from Angie Juda's post found here.   I do want to make sure she gets the credit for making the box.  I used Garden Green for my box.

For my decoration, the Stitched Nested Labels Dies were used to cut the stripe paper from the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper.  Since the background of this paper is Very Vanilla, I stamped the penguin on Very Vanilla.  The penguin is from the Playful Penguins stamp set.  Fussy cut the penguin and a hat and scarf.  Attach all to the box.

I added the penguin with dimensionals.  The saying is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  Stamp in Garden Green on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies.  Cut a coordinating scallop oval from Real Red.  Attach this layer with dimensionals too.

We had fun making our boxes.  Here are a few pictures.

Now, as you may know, it's not easy to get a lot of one color in 12 x 12 from Stampin' Up!  I actually used a retired pack that was available in an earlier year that was half Garden Green and half Poppy Parade.  My helpers Kaye and Jean came up with an alternative.

It seems that the Dollar Tree has a six pack of tissues that are smaller.  Dimensions can be adjusted for this size to fit our 8 1/2 x 11 paper.  You will be able to still get 2 from a sheet of cardstock.

The dimensions are 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 1" on each side of the portrait orientation.  Score at 4 1/8, 5 1/8, 9 1/4, and 10 1/4 on the landscape side.  Make as above.




This is my husband John and my granddaughter Sagan.  She came to visit for the weekend.  I had Bingo planned, but I couldn't say no to keeping Sagan.  She came for lunch and then off with Gramps for a little while.
