I don’t think its possible to ever have too much Lego around – ok apart from when its on the floor and gets stepped on…Luckily with this there will be no sharp edges to harm your feet and it will brighten up your plain tissue boxes.

Fold the circles in half to make 2 semi circles and sew onto the circle you sewed to the top of the box cover. Make sure you only sew around the edges to secure and leave the gap between the two semi circles unsewn for the tissues to come out through.
