Square Tissue Box Cover

Image

To construct the box with lid, you will need 3 x A4 Card, 300gsm.

For the base

Cut 2 pieces of Card so they are 27.9cm x 12cm. Then score at 12cm & 22cm.

Image

Do the same for the second one so you have 2 the same.

Image

Join together by placing the shorter edge inside the longer edge to make the box shape and the outer edge meets the corner of the box. TIP: Ensure that it fits around the tissue box, before gluing together!

For the top

Cut a piece of card 16cm x 15cm. Score each side at 2cm.

Image

Before constructing, you must remember to die cut a circle or oval (depending on the opening of the tissue box) in the centre of the lid. I also cut a border by placing the die in the centre of the outside border die. I made 2 of these, 1 for the inside and 1 for the top!  Cut one of the score lines at each corner to the next score line.

Image

Glue together to make the lid, ensuring the small tab is on the onside of the lid.
