Dollhouse Miniature Tissue Box


First I want to say I am sorry I cut myself off in the video, I had to get a new camera and it works differently than my old one. I didn't realize that I had cut myself off at the beginning until I started the editing process for the video and then it was too late to go back and fix it. I will learn to use the new camera soon (I hope)

Anyway, on to the project. This week for Trash to Treasure Thursday I thought I would show you how to make a super simple tissue box (or Kleenex box depending on where you live)

The base for the box is just a little square bead that is ¼” on all sides, it needs to have a good size opening in it. The opening is about the same as the ones in the cylinder shaped pony beads.

The only other things you will need are a small piece of facial tissue, some glue and some kind of tool to poke the tissue into the bead.

That really is all there is to it.

Now if you can find a larger bead, about ½” in size this can certainly be made for Barbie and her friends. I just haven't had time to go look to see if they make beads like this in that size. If they do it would certainly scale up that far very easily.
