Are you CrafTea?

If yes, this might be something fun to replicate.  After a search of the web, I was unable to find a pattern for this clever way to disguise a box of tissue.... but, with a few measurements,  a free afternoon, some pretty material,  and a box of tissues as your guide, you could have a go of it!

The tissue box is covered entirely with the double sided material, shown here with a pretty tea cup pattern on the outside and a plain white material as the lining.  The bottom is open so the box will slide right into the covering.  There are five petals that circle the top of the box.



There is an additional ring of five elasticized petals that fits over the petals in the outer covering forming a blossom on the top of the box where the tissue peeks out.The end result is a cleverly concealed box of tissues, perfect for the ladies room in the tea room.  If you aren't crafty, or are short on time, perhaps you might find something like this at the upcoming holiday bazaars that will soon be occurring.  Either way, good luck!

Did you make this one? It is clever and already my brain is figuring it out. That's the trouble with this patternmakers thinking. I like it.

I like the design and am thinking of making them for my friends children's bedroom. No more I cant find the Kleenex box and you can have different designs for seasons and holidays and such. Thanks for the idea.

That is a pretty way to cover a box of tissue. I like the clever two piece design.
