OMG, this Piggy Bank Tissue Box was so fun and fast to create. I came up with the idea when I had my last allergy attack and ran out of tissues. Why throw the empty tissue box away? Why not reuse it?

So, I did. I reused it and made it into a Piggy Bank. How fun?!

Did you see my funny and entertaining video on how I came up with the idea and how I made this Piggy Bank Tissue Box? It is hilarious. This is my first video that I actually appear on. I thought you might like that:-) Check it out on my website!
