Take ten white connectors, and connect them using green rods. Next, take two grey connectors and slide them together as shown. Repeat to get five pieces, and connect them using green rods. Then, make a second row of five grey connectors. Lastly, make two pairs of two grey connectors as shown.

Step 3: Tissue Box-Bottom: Connecting Pieces

Take all of the pieces that you made in the previous step, and connect them as shown using green rods. Next, take four red connectors, and attach them to the corners of the base, once again using green rods. Finally, fill in all spaces using white rods.

Step 4: Tissue Box-Top

To make the top of the tissue box, simply remake the outer frame of the bottom half of the box. Next, take three yellow connectors and connect them using green rods. Repeat to get two separate rows, and add them to the frame. Next, take two blue connectors, and connect them exactly as shown using a green rod. Repeat to get two separate pieces, and add them to the frame exactly as shown.

Step 5: Completing And Filling the Tissue Box

To fill the tissue box, remove all tissues from the side of the box. Then, place the tissues on the bottom half of the new K'nex tissue box. Next, add the top half of the box and connect using green rods. Pull the top tissue through the opening. Fill in all spaces using white rods.
Technically, a cold is incurable. You can only treat them, the virus is impervious to vaccine, but it is weak so that's why it isn't dangerous.

In the profession of internet marketing and publications an alliterative title always trumps accuracy. You've seen news articles before right?

Yes please! :) As I was looking at your creations I was thinking about ways I might be able to use k'nex (as we have them but never use them). I need some divided organizers...small ones...so this would work!

nerfrocketeer (author)  HollyMann4 months ago

Cool! Remember, you can easily modify any K'nex idea to perfectly suit your needs (that's why I like them so much)! Good luck if you build something! It would be great to see a K'nex 'Ible from you! ;)

Yes. This is good. You have gotten featured again, Nerf. ^_^
Congrats. :3
Thanks bruh bruh, congrats on your feat too!
You're welcome and thank you. Everyone is getting featured and all is well in our corner of instructables. :P
Haha its only one "corner" I'm a part of!
I would like to think I co-exist on multiple corners of instructables as well; really, though, it is all building related stuff. :3
Me too, but I also do gun, cooking, craft, and tech-related stuff...
nice :D
