Refrigerator Tissue Box Craft

Pin It
Here's a cool idea to turn an ordinary tissue box into a refrigerator to hold all your origami or toy food.
Materials:

  • 3 tissue(Kleenex) boxes
  • origami paper or other colorful paper
  • scissors
  • glue

Directions:

  1. On the back of a Kleenex box, cut a 7cm(2.7 inch) flap from the top. Cut it so you can open it like a door.
  2. Leave a little space and cut another 7cm flap.
  3. Leave  little space again and cut a 7 cm flap from the bottom. Cut this one completely off. It will be the vegetable crisper box.
  4. Cut the back off another Kleenex box and fit it inside the first one to make the inside back of the refrigerator.
  5. Glue colorful paper all over the outside of the box.
  6. Cut 2 6x13.5cm rectangles from another tissue box and use them to make the shelves on the inside. Fold up the ends and glue to the inside of the box.
  7. Cut a 7cm box off the end of another tissue box. This will become the crisper drawer. Glue colored paper all over the drawer.
  8. Cover another piece of tissue box with colored paper and cut 1x9cm strips and glue them on for the refrigerator handles. You could also just cut a lip in the drawer and pull it out with your finger.
  9. To make a tight fitting door, cut 2x6cm strips from a tissue box. Fold in the middle lengthwise and glue the flap to the end of the door opening. (not shown)
