From Nathan Schulte …
In need of a gift for my girlfriend, I came up with this idea which would be great for Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, or even birthdays. The idea behind this is that it will look like an unopened box of tissues so at first is can be humorous to gift them a box of tissues. When they take out a tissue it will say “I love…” and the succeeding tissues will be things you love about the person. It is simple, creative, and very personal.
- A box of tissues (I bought a box of Kleenex that came in 50)
- A marker (Remember that sharpie doesn’t smell good)
- Hot glue gun
- Xacto/razor knife
Step 1 – Opening the Box
Open one side of the box at the flaps as cleanly as possible. A razor knife makes it easy to cut the factory glue.
Step 2 – Writing Your Reasons
Take out the tissues and remove one at a time, writing a reason on the inside of each tissue.
**Pay attention to how the tissues overlap one another, you will have to refold them after writing on them. This is how another tissue will come up after you pull the first one out of the box**
Step 3 – Refolding the Tissues
The tissues fold over one another alternating from left to right. Below shows refolding the 4 example tissues from step 2.
Step 4 – Put Tissues Back in the Box and Glue Shut
The box will looked like it has never been opened! What a surprise when the tissues have all your ways to say I Love You on them!
