3. No directive- Stuffed Panda

Notation- This idea came to me when thinking about the comfort of tissue. I thought it would be interesting to try and stuff a stuffed animal with Kleenex. I was originally going to take an existing teddy bear and restuff it but was lucky enough to find a kit to make one from scratch. I picked a panda bear (AOII) and sewed in tissue. Purdy Panda is a little more stiff than the typical teddy but she’s full of Kleenex’s “soothing comfort.”

2. No Directive- Surrender

Notation- When I was thinking of other uses for Kleenex I was reminded or a surrender flag. I went out and bought toy soldiers and created a scene that would give one side a reason to surrender.

1. No Directive- “Kleenex can Solve All of These Things” Song

These new lyrics go to the Sound of Music song “These are a few of my Favorite Things” –

Rainstorms and blizzards and cold winter breezes cause sniffles and coughs and loud messy sneezes
Flus and colds are what winter brings
Kleenex can solve all of these things

Add some extra volume to boost an A-cup
Wipe away excess or smudges of make-up
Joyful tears when exchanging vows and rings
Kleenex can solve all of these things

Laughing so hard that tears form in your eyes

Hearing the sound that your first baby cries
Heartbreak that comes after short-lived flings
Kleenex can solve all of these things

When your grade bites
When rejection stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply grab a Kleenex to solve these things
And then I don’t feel so bad

Notation- While trying to create a song of my own about Kleenex, the idea to do this came to me. It was difficult trying to find the right words to fit and to make sure it rhymed but I like the way it came out.
