What Can You Make From a Kleenex Box?

Hello!

I had been wanting to make this great Kitchen Counter Organizer for a long time now and finally finished it! I saw the tutorial on "Stamp TV with Gina K Designs" http://stamptv.ning.com/ and loved it. It is made from a Kleenex box. Gina uses the large size but I purchased the regular size by mistake and it worked out fine! :<)

Do check out this site if you are not familiar with it as she has wonderful project tutorials - a new one each week - with printed measurements and supply list and a video.






Thanks for stopping by today!

More sunshine here in WI today, but I see from my window that frost is covering everything this morning. Must be a lot colder!

That is soooooo cute - I'll have to make sure the kiddo doesn't toss the next empty kleenex box.

(Yeah, right - like she would actually notice and throw it away!)

You created a wonderful box.
I'm always surprised what can be made out of left-overs and things you would actually throw away.

I really like this! The colors are so pretty, too. I will have to check out her site. Always looking for some good group projects that don't cost so much to do but don't look "cheap" either! This fits the bill! As well as repurposing something! ;)
Thanks for sharing!
Blessings,Sharon

Oh how did I miss this one? Love it. I love making organiser boxes and the way my 3yr old rips out the tissues, I will have an empty one very soon so I can give this a try!!

Hello!
I love this idea! I have always been a huge recylcer and cannot stand to throw things that can be reused much less stamped on! My boys have made guitars out of then but nothing so cute! I need to make one to even organize those "cards in progress."
Mr. Kiss is the cutest thing ever by the way!
