Turn a Kleenex Box into Home Décor

Who needs a decorative tissue box cover anymore when Kleenex and other companies are making the boxes with all kinds of fun patterns?

I was about to throw away a box of Kleenex when I noticed how much I liked the pattern. I decided to play around with it to see if I could make something from it.

I thought this pattern would look nice as a mat in a frame. It’s a nice, neutral color and the pattern is simple. I just got a couple white frames from Ikea and got to work.

Since these frames came with a mat, it was really easy. I just cut strips out of the box in the same size as the sides of the mat. Using double sided tape, I taped the strips to the existing mat. If you don’t have a mat, you can just line up your strips along the edge of the glass in your frame and tape them together in the back.Maggie May's Kleenex decoration- cut strips to mat

Then I put the mat back in the frame, added a picture, and that was it.

With the leftover box, I cut a few strips and wrapped them inside some votive candles I had. This is only recommended for candles that are decoration only. Somehow adding paper next to a flame doesn’t sound like a good idea 🙂

The possibilities of things to do with the boxes is endless. You can cut out hearts or circles to decorate note cards, cut strips as bookmarks, or just put a piece inside a frame as the art itself.

Ok, so go dig through your trash and pull out all your old tissue boxes. No one is watching!
