Nice cage set up. Mabel has got plenty to keep her occupied in there! Like your homemade cardboard parcel. I've had a go at making some toys for my Bramwell.

Thank you all for the feedback I've added more substrate now - I didn't want to put too much in at first in case she had a bad reaction to it, but thankfully she seems fine.

She keeps changing sleeping locations for same reason, last night I caught her burrowed down under her wheel!
I got these pictures of her before, not sure why she was awake so early but she was having the time of her life rolling round in her sand.
You can see she's pretending to be shy

Thank you I do have a cardboard box for her but I didn't know what type of bed she'd like most so I left it out, will definitely put it in when I spot clean later! As for the tissue, there is some in her cage but she doesn't use it. She didn't have any in her cage at the pet shop so I think she just doesn't know what she's supposed to do with it. I usually leave it in the middle of the cage so they can choose where they want to move it to build their nest, but she didn't show any interest in it.. I tried putting it in the house for her but she ended up stuffing it all into her cardboard tube, which is weird since she doesn't sleep in there. I know some people use hay in for the hamsters to nest with so I might try that. She has been burrowing down into the substrate though, so hopefully she's warm enough for now.

Thank you! She really likes the heart dish I was originally using it as a sand bath but the sides are so shallow that she just kept kicking the sand out !

Lovely photos of her, she's such a sweetie!

I would just leave the tissue for now & let her do what she wants when she wants.
I've only had one female Russian, unlike my boys who usually just slept in the same place she would always have about five nests at any one time! As long as she's got plenty of substrate & options for houses or places to nest she'll be fine.
I haven't found mine use hay for nests if I put it in the cage & you do have to be careful, freeze it for about a week or a minimum of 48hrs then pick out any sharp bits that might damage pouches or poke her in the eye or something.
