Get Well Tissue Pack

Club Scrap's Delft collection is one of my favorites, and it's been inspiring some wonderful creativity all month long! Go to the first stop on the Club Scrap Hop to tour all of the awesome work, and be sure to submit your own projects to the Linky Party.

Meanwhile, I'm always on the hunt for a practical project or gift idea, and I stumbled upon a tutorial at Split Coast Stampers to make a get well gift from a travel size tissue pack. It's adorable in Delft!

I created the base unit according to the original concept and then added a sliding tray to hold the tissue pack.

Score a 4.25x11 Delft Dk. Blue Plain horizontally at .5, 3, 4, and 6.5". Create an opening for the tissue with an oval die cut or ruler and craft knife.

Score a 6.5x8.25 Delft Dk. Blue Print horizontally at 1, 2, 6.25 and 7.25". Score vertically at 1, 2, 4.5, and 5.5". Cut along solid lines as indicated in the diagram to create tabs and side walls. Apply glue to the outside walls. Fold in the long walls first, turn in the tabs at a 90-degree angle, and wrap the short walls around the tabs to form the tray.

Trim panels from the Delft 8.5x11 Quad Print were trimmed to the following measurements:

  • 7/8 x 4-1/8" (front edge of unit)
  • 2-3/8 x 4-1/8" (top of unit)
  • 3-3/8 x 4-1/8" (back wall of unit)

To create a nested opening for the tissue, first cut or die cut a larger opening into the center of the 3-3/8x4-1/8" panel. Then, center the panel onto the base unit to determine the placement of the nesting die for the smaller opening. (It took me a few tries to realize the proper order of things.)

Nest the panels onto the base unit, slide in the tray with the travel size pack, pull out the first tissue, and decorate as you wish. I stamped the "Get Well" sentiment from the Shades of Winter Greeting stamp sheet.

Now you're off to see Roni at your next stop on the hop.

Be well!
