What a rad way to up cycle a tissue box!
This tutorial is pretty much the same as my wrapped bottle tutorial, only this one uses a tissue box. It’s a little time consuming, but the results are pretty awesome, so in my opinion, it’s worth it. No one would ever be able to tell it was a tissue box when looking at the after picture!
