I'm going to be candid right now: sometimes I can be pretty cheap. For instance, rather than buying a box of tissues for our runny noses courtesy of spring pollination, I've been using toilet paper. Which, if you couldn't surmise on your own, is pretty trashy-looking on the bedside table. What can I say - I just can't bring myself to spend money if I don't need to. My cheapness has found a way to pretty this up, & my tissue box is now reusable!
For a decoupaged tissue box of your own, you'll need a few things:
- Empty tissue box
- Pretty paper (magazine pages, in my case)
- Large paint brush
- Mod Podge
- X-acto blade
- Adhesive velcro
- And of course, toilet paper
I opened the box up in the back.
Then I decoupaged my tissue box, one side at a time. I completely covered the top of the box, too.
While my box dried, I pulled the cardboard tube out of my TP. That way my tissue comes from the middle of the roll & not awkwardly from the side.
Once dry, I used my X-acto knife & cut the top of the box like so.
Then I put my velcro on the back flaps so I can open & close it with ease when I run out of tissues. Easy peasy & done.
