Decorating your tissue box cover

For the experienced crafter

If you are a frequent crafter who makes your own craft embellishments with fabric (like the craft flowers shown above) and secure them onto your craft tissue box with a glue gun.

For the practical

You may also simply use fabric to create a slip cover which can be fastened on your new tissue box and thrown in the washer. It is not recommended that you include too many embellishments on this type of cover.

For kids

You and your child can decorate a craft tissue box cover in a safer way by not using a glue gun, but rather colored thermal labels, which come in many bright and shiny colors and can be cut into different shapes and designs! This allows of easy and neat application.
