We always buy our tissue boxes in bulk from Costco. However, sometimes the designs aren't the "prettiest" and they'd stand out [not in a good way] in our living room. o.O
I decided to make a simple cover that I'd be able to easily slip on and off. With materials that I already had on hand, I quickly re-purposed an old shoe box into something a little more useful and pleasant to look at. ;)
I found this Sanuk box to be the best fit. The length needs to be shortened a little, but the width and height matched almost exactly with the tissue box.
First I cut off the top so that I would just be left with the base. To fix the length issue, I took the box apart and cut the flaps down to shorten it. The rest of the pictures are pretty self-explanatory.
Once the box was ready, I wrapped it up with some brown wrapping paper and styled it with some decorative adhesive trim.
Then for a little extra touch, I stenciled on the words, "Bless You" on the front. :)
What do you all think? Have any of you attempted at making covers before? Or re-purposed shoe boxes for other uses? I'd love to hear from you! :)
