Here is my project for the Dollar Store Challenge through The CSI Project!
I had this project in mind when I saw an idea for it in the
Better Homes & Gardens Magazine
"100 Decorating Ideas for Under $100"
Here is my inspiration:
Originally, I looked everywhere for a tissue box cover for me to...decorate, but I found nothing. So I figured I could make something out of Foam Board (you can make ANYTHING...just about, out of foam board).
Thats when I realized this would be the perfect Dollar Store Project. Everything either comes from the dollar store or was something I already had. Good thing the Dollar Store is right across the street from me! I probably spent $5 there to gather some of my materials.
I am making this as a gift for my sister who has an office job and likes to decorate her space. Shes got kind of a shabby chic style....so I chose scrapbook papers that were that kind of style. This project came together as I worked on it.
I started by measuring and cutting the foam board.
Then I did the same with the paper I chose. I Modge-Podged and Hot Glued away....I also distressed the edges a bit.
Here are some of the things I got at the dollar store that I wanted to add to the tissue box. My sister is a Post-It freeeeeak! So I made sure there was plenty of that! I also added Velcro to the backs of things, so that when things ran out, they could be replaced.
It fits perfectly!
It needed a little something....details of course!
I added some flowers...and I also glued flowers to some clips. I also glued rhinestones to the tops of Push Pins....to make it all a little more fancy, I guess! haha.....I also added some ribbon to the edges I wasn't able to cover with paper. I had glue ALL over my hands!
