DIY Tissue Box for TP

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.

Bathroom Organization

I have been on a kick of cleaning my bathroom. It started with covering the hole in the door, and now I’m organizing everything in the drawers and cabinets.

Today I decorated an empty waffle box so I can put all of our first aid/medical supplies in it. It was just spray painted and covered with cute duct tape, but it works well. It’s pretty cute for something that hides in the cupboard.

Yesterday I made a tray to store my nail polish. The tutorial for the tray is over at Arizona Mama. I made it almost for free, but luckily I had the cute duct tape on hand. Click here to see the tutorial.
