Tissue Paper Boxes

Good morning, and happy weekend! I'm so excited to show you these super duper cute paper mache boxes that I covered in tissue paper!

I'm working on accessorizing my office, and found these guys begging to be dressed up with paper, ribbon, and they were 50% off at Hobby Lobby! Woowho!

Here's the finished product:

And here's how I got there:

Lessons learned:
1) If your paper doesn't need to match up on the corners, then fold your tissue paper in fourths so you can cut out all the sides at the same time.

2) Put the lid on your box before you add the embellishments. My polka dot box got a little too close for comfort.

3) Be gentle when smoothing out the bubbles, you are working with tissue paper.

4) You don't notice the little you? :)

Think about all the fun places you could use these storage boxes. I'm thinking my next set will be for my little guy's bedroom...right next to the changing station!
