Kleenex Box Makeover!

Goodness, can you believe how ugly those Kleenex boxes are?  You go to the store needing kleenex tissue and all they have is some hideous design that clashes with your home decor!  What to do!  You need those tissues but you hate the box…

Well, here is a great solution!  Make your own Kleenex Box Cover to match your home decor or at least something that is way cuter than that ugly kleenex box design.  Today’s share brings you this classic tissue box cover sporting the Eiffel Tower from one of my favorite stamp sets – Artistic Etchings.  

This is my very first tissue box cover and I used this tutorial from splitcoaststampers.  I don’t own any nestabilities and instead used my Circle Scissor Cutter to create the first opening for the top of the box then I “folded” the decorative top piece in half but didn’t “crease” the paper and used a punch to make my opening for the tissue paper.

SunnyGirlScraps Tip(s) of the day:
  • Have you seen a Definitely Decorative Stampin’ Up! Home Decor catalog lately?  The Decor Elements are an excellent way to add dimension and character to your walls or other home furnishings such as plates, mugs, platters, mirrors or frames.
  • Photography Tip for Beginners – Keep a camera with you all the time and I don’t mean the camera built into your cell phone regardless of how good that camera may or may not be!
  • Photography Tip for Beginners – Make a list of the shots you would like to capture with your camera.  I’ve always wanted to capture a butterfly on a flower and while on vacation recently I was able to capture this photo:
