Quick Upcycling Tissue Boxes DIY

So I have a cold again…


As a result of getting a cold lately, I used up another tissue box. That gave me the idea to reuse the box for other purposes. You could simply just place things in it to use but I wanted to decorate mine a bit.


Here’s what I used for this DIY:

  • Shelf liner adhesive paper/ gift wrap/ colored paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler

Basic RGB

I first started with cutting out a L shape from the adhesive backed paper that would fit all sides of the tissue box except the bottom. (I didn’t cut out the exact measurement but had added about 1/8 inch more to ensure that it covered all of it.)

Then, I simply covered the sides with the paper. The last step is to cut into the hole in the middle so that the paper could be folded into the box. I left the circular hole as is but you could adjust to your needs.

Now I could use the tissue box like a giant pencil holder but for my rulers and scissors or even my unopened mail.

This was a super quick DIY but what do you think of this idea?
