~* All Season Tissue Box cover *~

[Back to Miscellaneous menu]  [Back to crafts menu]


MATERIALS NEEDED:

* 1 Tissue Box Cover pasteboard box.
* Mod podge.
* Small sponge paintbrush.
* Clear Acrylic Spray.
* Tissue Box end, side and top templates.

Graphics are from various sets, for example CC22: Puppies.


INSTRUCTIONS:

Import templates into your print program. Print out a test sheet and check for fit on your box. Make adjustments if needed. Import your desired graphics and decorate. Print 1 top piece, 2 end pieces and 2 side pieces. Let papers dry 15 minutes. Spray lightly with clear acrylic spray to seal ink. Let dry another 20 minutes. When dry, cut all pieces out.

For the top:
Cut the dotted lines. Fold on all staight lines. Appy a thin coat of Mod Podge to the back of your cut paper. Fit to lid, smoothing out as you apply paper to box. For the edges: Fold the sides under that have the selvage edge first. This will make a nice corner when you fold down the other sides.

For the bottom:
Apply the end papers first, fold the selvage edge over to make another nice corner. Apply the side panels. Smooth all air bubbles out. Let dry for one hour.

Lightly spray dried top and sides with a coat of clear acrylic spray. Two light coats should give you a nice finish. Let the box dry for two or more hours.

Since I made this for my classroom, I didn't add any embellishments but it would look great with gimp braid on the edges!
