This mini tissue box is a lot simpler than it looks! It will look great in your miniature collection or your dollhouse. And of course you can always adjust the size to fit your needs.

Materials:
      Clay (I used air-dry)
      Toothpick (Preferable would be one with a flat end)
      Small square of tissue

Instructions:

Step 1: Take out a small lump of clay.

Step 2: Shape the lump into a cube.

Step 3: Push the the toothpick through the middle of the cube.

Step 4: Take the small piece of tissue and put it on top of the hole.

Step 5: With the backside of the toothpick, slowly press the tissue down the hole. (You may have to do this again if the toothpick pokes a hole in the tissue. Don't worry if it does, it happened to me a lot.)

Step 6: The tissue should eventually stick up. Arrange it how you like, and VoilĂ ! You are done. If you want, paint it any color you like. 

As a second variation, you can use square beads instead of clay.
