Faux Chipboard Coaster Box

Ok, I've had this cold for a week now and have gone through 2 boxes of Puffs tissues. As I was using the last tissue in a box I had an idea! I could make a Faux Chipboard Coaster Box! WOO HOO! I have those coasters everyone is using to make these really cute boxes but just haven't dug them out to use them so I made a fake one! This is the end of my tissue box. You can get 2 out of each box. I just cut off the end, glued on some of our pretty paper, added eyelets on all the corners and tied ribbon through. Quick and easy. The hardest part would be setting those eyelets. You'll need a corner of a table to get inside the box and you'll need the anywhere punch and setter since the Crop A Dile's reach isn't long enough for the bottom holes. Otherwise it's a fun box that will be holding all of my ribbon scraps on my stampin' desk from now on. And, if I get tired of looking at one side I can just turn it around for a different look. I hope you like this idea and what a great way to keep those tissue boxes out of the landfill. Happy stampin' to you all! L

Oh how very nice. Now I wonder if you could do these just using the DSP and cutting out a template and putting the eyelets in and that way you could use the cropadile to punch & set ... might have to try and see how it goes.
