Cut 1 foam core piece 4 x 4 7/8 for the top of the tissue box. Using the pattern, cut a circle out form the middle so that the tissue can be pulled through.

Align the 4 edges and glue the top to the 2 side pieces. You can use the tissue box as a guide by placing the pieces on the box before gluing.

Using the acrylic paint color of your choice, paint the surface of the whale. Let dry. Apply clear sealer over the paint. Let dry.

Glue a moving eye to either side of the whale. Use the black fine tip permanent marker and draw in a smile on either side of the whale.

Place tissue box inside holder. Pull first tissue through holder so that it looks like a spout.
