I designed this cute little plastic canvas tissue box cover pattern for a Christmas gift for my grandmother one year. She loves displaying photos of her great-grandchildren all over the house and loves handmade gifts. So I thought it was the perfect thing to make for her.
This tissue box cover works up really quickly and can hold 4 photos that are 3″x4″. You can easily finish this project in an evening or two.
Using just 2 plastic canvas stitches (continental and gobelin), this plastic canvas tissue cover pattern is a great project for beginners. It uses just 3 colors of yarn and can easily be changed to fit the color scheme of any room. The cute little bows really accent the photos and the hearts on the top remind the recipients that it was a gift made with love!
