Fabulous Fall Kleenex Box

I'm back from a fantastic weekend retreat with Mary and some very talented and creative ladies! I had a fantastic time with them all, and today's project was inspired by fellow team member and CTMH consultant, Lori Loree. She had the brilliant idea of turning the little box found on page 47 into a mini kleenex box!

I loved that idea so much that I had to try it. Since I happened to have a little package of kleenex with a Fall Leaves print, I decided to go with that theme! Here is what I came up with by using the Fall Harvest stamp set, and Flirty paper.

I started by cutting the box out at 4". This can be found on page 47, and the assembly instructions are on page 19 of the booklet. I also cut out the frame from the shape found on page 33. I did this by using the center point feature on my Cricut, and cut the shape out at 3" and then again at 2" to make the frame.

Since the box is a little too wide for the mini kleenex, you'll need to create a bumper for the inside of the box.
Start with a sheet of cardstock cut at 7 1/4" x 4 1/8". Then score each end at 1", 1 1/2", and 2 1/2".
At the top, I stamped and cut out the banner and added some hemp and a sparkle. At the bottom, I stamped and cut out the leaves, and added an adorable wooden acorn shape with more hemp and a sparkle. I love how we can stamp and color these wooden shapes!
Happy Crafting!
