DIY Super Easy Christmas Tissue box

Ok, so this is a ridiculously easy craft idea, but I had to share. I remember seeing a tutorial online long ago on how to make a tissue box cover, but I wanted to do something different. I wanted to make a box the actual holder. When I was perusing the Dollar Tree, as I do fairly regularly, I spotted these beautiful Christmas boxes. They're all shaped like houses in various sizes and so cute! Truly well designed and the sparkle on the houses is gorgeous.

Materials you will need: 

  • Tissues from another box, which I also purchased from Dollar Tree.

Look at the pretty sparkle of that roof! 

The hole I cut was a little wonky, as it was hard to control with the scissors I had. Hence, the tip to use very sharp scissors. An exacto is better and on a cutting mat, would be be ideal. It's not too bad and is well hidden with the tissue inside anyway. I used the existing picture of a window as a guide to get the hole in the middle. Making the hole right there at the top also kinda makes it mimic smoke coming out of a chimney!

Make sure to make the hole at least almost an inch, give or take. This way you won't risk the tissue ripping on the way out. You don't want it too snug, nor too wide. 

When placing the tissues inside , I carefully folded them to fit and keep their shape. Then lined it up at the hole so that the tissue came out effortlessly. 

This idea would be cute as an addition to a Christmas village or it looks great as a standalone on a side table, night stand or desk at work/home. I have one next to my couch and one on my desk for easy grabbing! Just a cute little super easy DIY tissue box that can really liven up your decor. 

Tip: If you don't want glitter herpes, give it a hit with hair spray outside!

My cat gets a children's mat, because I say so. #spoiledpets

So, Squishy mats reached out and I thought, why not. I have a furbaby. Why can't she be spoiled with a squishy mat? Why can't she have all the things human kids have. She steals my food like a kid, sleeps on me like a kid, whines like a kid. The only thing different is she scratches like a monster. But hek, even kids do that at times. Nothing makes her much different from a kid, so she should get kid things. Your pet is going to steal this if you buy it for your kid anyway.

My DIY Cyborg transformation. #Steampunk #Halloween

Halloween for me is like something otherworldly, because all my senses become almost bionic. I want to see, hear, taste, feel, whatever I am trying to transform into. Essentially, just BE that thing. Considering i'm a SciFi Fantasy buff, especially steampunk, I decided to attempt my first ever cyborg transformation.

 It's that time again, when I go a little bit bonkers with my home decor and making house beautiful with everything...dead.

 Yes, It's Halloween and my place legitimately looks like a burial ground, but it's a beautiful sparkly magic one with zombies that only eat the brains of bad people. So, you should enjoy it.

The scientifically proven anti-aging regimen.

Since embarking on a journey to clearer and more youthful skin about 8 years ago, I realized a lot of do's and don'ts in that time frame.
