Whimsical tissue box cover….

The other evening at my friend's house, we all got a good laugh from the whimsical tissue box cover that she had recently found in a thrift shop and couldn't resist buying. I took a photo of it and decided to try to make my own version of the cover so I have built one and it will be fun to see how it looks after it is glazed and fired. The hard part will be to get the size right as there is always a certain amount of shrinkage from the firing. So this first one will be the experimental one and if the tissue box doesn't fit, it can defiantly hold a roll of toilet tissue!! The idea is to have the tissue look like it's right at the tip of the nose. My friends box had lips below the paper slot but I didn't have room so I just made the slot in the shape of lips instead. I'll post the end results in a week or two after it is bisque fired, glazed and then the final glaze firing. These things take time, folks!!

    How cute and clever, Maron. It’s an adorable box, and I am so impressed that you created that. Yes, you will surely find a good use for it.
