You Will Need
- Tissue box
- Sewing machine
- Electric iron (optional)
Use a ruler to measure the five sides of your tissue box, excluding the bottom, and add 1/4 inch to each side for the seam.
Cut out sides from fabric
Cut out each side of your fabric with a pair of scissors and then measure and cut out a slot for the tissues in the top piece.
Cut a small slit in each corner of the opening, fold back the edges, and then sew them back for a nice clean look.
Sew the sleeve
Sew all four sides of the perimeter together inside out to create the sleeve that fits around the box.
Notch top piece
Cut out tiny 1/4-inch squares in each corner of the top piece to create flaps that wrap around each of the four sides of the sleeve.
Attach top piece
Attach the top piece to the sleeve by pinning it upside down and then sewing the flaps to each side.
Turn right side out
Turn the cover right side out and then slip over the tissue box. Pull a tissue through the top slot. Display in plain view for all to see without embarrassment.
