Tissue box 2.0

Yes, it’s that time of the year again. tissue_1Runny nose, coughing, drinking liters of tea and watching movies on the couch. The perfect time for a little tissue box project :-).

You might remember a similar project from last year. Back then, I made a super easy no-sew tissue box cover out of oilcloth. This time I chose to use my sewing machine, which makes the project a little bit more difficult, but also gives a prettier result. And once you have one made, you can re-use it over and over again when your box is empty.

I’m very happy with how this turned out! The Boogy lagoon design is cheerful, and contrasts well with the raspberry red border. I added a little label to make it even more personal. Of course you can use any type of decorative ribbon for a similar look.

Trendy Tissue Box

lola_tissue_box_raw_collectionIt’s that time of the year again, when your nose can’t stop running and you have paper tissues lying around everywhere. Some of the things that seem to be very helpful are drinking lots of tea with honey and staying under that blanket in the couch. Another thing that makes it all more bearable is to decorate your tissue box, so why not with lola tablecloth?

What you need:

  • tissue box
  • 0.5m of lola tablecloth (example: lola raw collection) – or adhesive foil
  • scissors
  • scotch tape

What to do:

  • Consider your tissue box a little gift you are going to wrap and cut out enough tablecloth (or adhesive foil) to fold underneath.
  • Lay the lola tablecloth over the box and locate the opening.
  • Draw around the edges of the opening and cut it out of the tablecloth.
  • Place the tissue box with the opening under the opening of the tablecloth.
  • Wrap the entire thing up, fold the edges under the box and attach with the scotch tape.

You have to admit, this is such a fun thing to do, simple as ABC, and now you can almost look forward to blowing your nose.
