Tissue BoxCover

I'm not overly emotional
 (well, you only have MY word on that one)

But when I go to the shops
 I don't by one box of tissues,
 I buy six!

 I am actually from loud sneezing, 
allergic rhinitis royalty.

 My tissue use is prolific.

Now while my nose likes to get a littler hyper,
my eyes work perfectly.
So this week I set out to create a tissue box cover
 that would mask the ugly boxes that decorate my bench tops.

I punched out some circles from origami paper

and mod-podged them randomly onto a mdf blank.
Finally, I sealed them with a few coats of Mod-Podge.

It was ridiculously easy, relaxing and I kind of like it-
 it certainly beats the cactus barcode design.

 I hope your nose is kind to you this week :)

  1. I love these Lynda. I hope your tissue use eases up soon. x

    1. Thanks Kate- highly unlikely I'm afraid but at least I don't have the flu-touchwood!!!

  2. Aw, that's cute. What a wonderful idea!


I enjoy hearing from you.
Thank you for your taking the time.
