There Is Elegance in a Tissue Box

 So lately I have been trying new things in the crafting world, fighting battles with my health, and questioning everything that is happening in the world today. This post comes with hopes of a better tomorrow and faith in people especially the American people to come through and pull together as has been done so many times in the past.  COVID is testing every country and it does not discriminate in any way.  Stay safe my friends amid the storm and your faith and strength will rein.

Tissues are becoming the number one thing to have in your car and in your home. I've been trying to make the boring tissue box come alive with elegance and charm. Here is one where I used paper ordered from Italy to ensure it was rice paper and to make sure that it would make this product a unique one-of-a-kind item.

I hope you find it elegant and like it as much as I do. You could purchase the tissue box cover already made in paper Mache or wood from any craft store or you could use chipboard and make the box yourself just to make it totally handcrafted. Either way I think it is truly a work of art and a sign of patience.


I wrapped the box in Italian paper and added trim around the bottom edge. Around the top to accent the gold in the paper I wrapped a gold border. I used Petaloo Flowers on the top and accented the corners with pearls. In the bottom main corner I used a wood accent to identify the front although any side could be the front.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I truly appreciate all of you and pray you will stay strong as we fight this virus and not allow it to take our joy or interfere to much with us showing our love for friends and family.

Sending Hugs From Texas
