Repurposed Tissue Box. It’s incredible how many boxes of tissue we go through with a baby in the house. And occasionally I come across boxes that I don’t want to throw in the recycling bin because they are simply ‘too pretty’. Like this for example, a collection of orchid images from Onwards Tissue (a popular brand in Singapore).

This brings back memories of my first visit to Singapore’s National Orchid Garden,I was in awe with the amount of beauty and diversity offered by this section of the Botanic Gardens. Try to guess how many species and hybrids there are at the garden? 100? No. Higher,please..way higher.(“Over 1000 species and 2,000 hybrids are now found in the Gardens’ collection, with about 600 species and hybrids on display. Every year, more vibrant and enduring hybrids are added on. The National Orchid Garden now offers a permanent showcase, the largest display of tropical orchids in the world.”)
Ok…now back to our project.
You will need:
Tissue box with attractive design
Card stock paper
Colored construction paper
- Cut parts of the tissue box that you want to use. (one makes at least 2 cards)
- Cut coloured paper just slightly bigger than image to serve as border. Stick to T-box design using double-sided tape. In my examples pictured above I used green paper to create the border effect.
- Fold card stock paper in half and adhere image to the front.
Your card is now ready to send to a friend.
C’mon snail mail it and you’ll make somebody’s day!
