Illustrated Tiger Tissue Box

You’re faced with one of those first world dramas – you’ve got to get a gift that means you care; that is in equal parts practical and individual.  That is special but doesn’t cost the earth…

So I came up with an illustrated tissue box.  Obviously.

As I think about it now, perhaps tissues do cost the earth in a natural resources kind of way – but I’ll not lose sleep about it.  Behold my genuis in action below:

Step one:  Buy tissue box, measure up it’s vital stats and draw that box a net.  Cut appropriately.

Step two:  Practise sketching out your images.

Step three:  Draw out and ink up tigers on that plain ol’ box net.

Step four:  The fun bit!  Colour that bad-ass in!

Step five:  Stick illustrated tissue box net to actual tissue box.  Beware that they’re tricksters and sometimes have the oval on both sides, only one of which is perforated.
