Tissue Box Refinish

I came across a plain, white tissue box at an estate sale. We definitely use a lot of tissues at our house (hey, we have allergies – and noses – imagine that!). Since it was $1 or less for the box, I purchased it, knowing that at some point I would add some pizzaz to its rather blah exterior.

Enter Mod Podge, handmade paper, Japanese rice paper, and a magazine cutout I’ve had WAY too long. 🙂 The result: a polite and Princess Bride-reminiscent tissue box.

Grandpa: “As you wish” was all he ever said to her.

Buttercup: Farm boy, fill these with water – please.

Grandpa: That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying “As you wish”, what he meant was, “I love you.” And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back.
