My COVID-19 invention is something small and simple, but it holds the power to make someone smile. I created a pop-up flower box that is easy to use and store. It is constructed out of an empty tissue box, yellow construction paper, green construction paper, a cardboard tube, red crepe paper, and yarn. There is a cutout in the bottom of the tissue box that makes it easy for a user to push the cardboard tube with a crepe paper flower on top, through a construction paper barrier, and out of the top of the tissue box. The flower will stay out of the box until someone pulls the cardboard tube down through the barrier, which hides the flower. This invention makes for easy storage as when the flower is contracted, as it stores as a cube. This invention will make someone smile as it may remind someone of spring.
