DIY Tissue Box Journaling Cards
Crafting materials are everywhere, friends! You can make this project from parts of a rectangular tissue box that has a design you already like or combine box panels and pieced shapes to create new looks.
Add Any Shape for Tons of Themes
The panels on the tissue box I had spoke lemons, oranges, clouds, popcorn, candy, and dads to me but you may find different designs that inspire you differently.
Make Large or Small Cards
Some of the larger panels can make cards that are about 4 by 4.5 inches, and the smaller panels make the smaller 2 by 4-inch cards. You can make these double-sided (which is how I did the small cards in this project) and add them to pockets in a scrapbook, junk journal, or memory book, or make them unfinished on the back (which is how I did the larger cards in this project) and glue them in place on a scrapbook layout. You can also convert the smaller cards to gift tags by sandwiching ribbon or string in between the cards (even if using them as a journaling card).
Make from Any Cardboard Box
These could be made from other paper packaging such as from cereal boxes with patterned scrapbook papers, tissue paper, or wrapping paper cut to cover over the plain side of the cereal box panels. If a paper you would like to use is thin and difficult to cut, decoupage it onto the cereal box first, then cut when completely dry, or, decoupage a piece of tissue paper or wrapping paper slightly larger than the pre-cut card and use a nail file drawn over the edges of the card to trim the excess off around the edges when it’s thoroughly dry. A bunch of these can be made in under an hour (though the decoupage option will require an overnight dry before trimming for best results).
