I don’t buy tissue unless someone in the family has a bad runny nose, and then I get them the nice ones with lotion! The rest of the time we go without tissues in the house, until I saw this tutorial on how to use toilet paper as a tissue refill.
It’s been awhile since I bought tissues so I didn’t have a tissue box. I did however have a box that used to hold cornmeal and it fit a small roll of toilet paper. It’s been sitting on our counter looking like we are using some special cornmeal tissue for a few weeks now. I finally got around to making it cute!
The top of the lid was easy, I just took a box cutter and slit a large “X” into it. It works perfectly.
I mod-podged some cute fall paper onto it, because our kitchen and living room are always fall colors and I can’t wait to start decorating for fall soon!
Once it dried I was able to put the toilet paper back in it and put the lid back on. I love that it’s easy to change when needed as well.
