Tissue box cover

Whenever I buy tissues, the box never quite matches our decor.  To remedy that, I made a tissue box cover.

First, I used the firm back side of a paper stack to make a top shell.  This way all the tissue pulling won't wreck the cover.

Then I arranged my nice papers to see where I wanted each pattern.

Next I began to adhere the top ones to the shell.

And wha-la ! 

A super fancy tissue box cover...

 ...that looks awesome from any angle...

 ...and gives you a conversation starter or bragging rights because it's handmade.

'Dots, Stripes & Plaids' and 'Linen Closet' stacks from DCWV were the source of the 10 stunning papers.
