Kleenex Box Creatures

My daughter found a cool kleenex box online...forwarded the photo to me and said "mom...you must make this, you can use your new saw!"  So of course...I did.  After making several of them for friends and family I started expanding on the idea and have come up with this fun "lobster box". Fits nicely into the powder room at the Hawaii House.

Not too tough to make...lots of cutting and gluing.

Here are the individual pieces...

and here's a shout out to the site where I found the original whale tissue box
also saw one similar at Uncommon Goods

Photo Christmas Ornaments

We had a huge family portrait shot for Christmas...19 of us.  So fun and so special.

I thought it would be fun to make Christmas ornaments from 
some of the individual family group shots we took.
Just went to the local photo center and had small prints made

Using my scroll saw I cut 2" x 3" pieces of wood

With some spray adhesive, a drill for a hole and some leftover 
white satin ribbon I had ornaments for everyone Christmas Eve.
