Last project in series of tissue boxes. It’s pallet wood project as previous boxes. First time I tried ribbons – not my best shot, but I learned a lot. I didn’t use template for ribbons, I drew them free hand and cut on scroll saw, so they are slightly different. Ribbons are mix of walnut, beech and ceiba. Finish is some ’’food frendly’’ wood oil.
Last two photos, simple boxes with burned sign for ’’Merry Christmas’’ in Croatian language.

Well done Ivan. These should be treasured by the people receiving them.
As I frequently mention to other woodworkers, I hope that you have signed and dated these.
Good work.

Great way to dress up those store bought tissue boxes. I like the fancy ribbons they will make nice gifts.

Are they gifts or for sale? Like the ribbon stuff, on my long list of things to try. Well done Ivan.

Really beautiful, the bows are very impressive.

Very nice. Food for thought, Ivan. Next time, if you inset the ribbons into the box sides and top, they’ll look thinner and more realistic. As for the tied part of them: You just make them thinner, next time, because you know how.

Nice boxes. Beautiful first time job on the ribbons.It seems to be a lot harder than they look.
