I love it that they are quirky and sweet. I get these people and probably would be friends with them, so when I see crafty things from the show I get excited and many other do as well. Case in point, the The Big Bang Gang on ravelry is devoted to the show.
But I digress, I noticed awhile back during the show that on the end table next to Sheldon's seat they had a covered tissue box. Now, when I think of tissue box holders, I tend to think of the one's my grandmother had at her house. Pastel, with flowers and small details but watching the show I saw the nerdiest of all Tissue Box Holders
|Behold the Rubix Cube Tissue Box Holder!|
Anyway, I didn't make this for myself, in fact I have never solved a Rubix cube but one of my best friends is a fan.

Becky has several different styles and types so I started to make this box for her before Christmas but since she wasn't my Secret Santa Swappee amongst our friends, I made it for her birthday later this month instead.
Of course, as I was making it I thought I should make a solved version so she could swap them out as I knew it would bug her that she couldn't solve the tissue box. :-P
It looks so nice now and I tried to make it as accurate as possible but there are a few mistakes luckily she can hide them in the back. Also, I counted the square of the tissue as one of the blocks because you can only have 9 blocks of each color.
Here is the finished product on Becky's shelf at work and she was so excited that she took it to work the day after I finished it!
So what do you think? Do you think Sheldon would approve?
