DIY No. 1 :: 180114 :: Make your own tissue box cover with maps

For the longest time, we were toying with the idea of replacing our tired tissue box cover. Guess what, we finally got to it. Armed with a map, foolhardiness and a sense of adventure, we did it. Try this yourself! We guarantee instant gratification :)

Time Required: 20 - 30 minutes

Stuff You Need: Scissors, an old map, a tissue box (do base it on a size you usually purchase), tape, pencil, ruler

Step 1: Wrap the tissue box entirely, much like how you would wrap a box-shaped package. Try not to over-lap the ends of the map too much when you are closing the ends. This will make it easier to cut the bottom out so that you can fit the cover on any tissue box in future.

Step 2: Mark out the bottom of the tissue box edges on the map, using a thin line. Cut off the rectangular bottom and you get this.

Step 3: Mark out a little opening at the top of the cover using a pencil. We chose a rectangular opening. Cut out the opening according to your pencil marking.

Step 5: Carefully reinforce all edges of the cover with some tape so that it will last a while.

Step 6: Done! Step back and admire your handiwork!
