Whether you’re nursing a mean cold, feeling the aftereffects of a bad breakup, having a terrible day, or watching the latest made-for-TV tearjerker, one trusty item you can always count on is a box of tissues. A box of soft tissues can be comforting during moments that are emotional or downright miserable. Why not house them in a decorative tissue box cover? Making a decorative tissue box cover is a quick and easy way to transform a functional item and add some instant charm to your room. And who knows – taking a tissue from a beautifully decorated box just might brighten up your bad day.
What you’ll need
- Plastic tissue box cover – white tissue box covers with a smooth surface work well
- Adhesive contact paper in a fun design
- Satin ribbon
- Double-sided tape
What to do
- Grab your tissue box cover and wrap it with adhesive contact paper. Use scissors to create the opening for the tissue.
- Cut a length of ribbon long enough to wrap around your tissue box once and tie the ends into a bow. Trim the ends. Secure the ribbon to the box by applying small pieces of double-sided tape.
