Creating this Elephant Tissue Box was absolutely fun and I was so amazed how fast one can crochet this tissue box. The most amazing feature is that the tissues come out and are pulled out of the trunk. How fun is that? This tissue box is for anyone who loves elephants or has kids. Which kid does not like elephants?
