Decorative papers turn a wooden tissue box into a colorful accent for bathroom or boudoir.


    • water container
    • paper towels
    • scissors
    • ruler
    • pencil
    • liner brush
    • #12 flat brush
    • wooden tissue box
    • ribbon
    • decorative papers



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Using a #12 flat brush, paint the inside of the tissue box Bubblegum Pink.
    2. Using a #12 flat brush, paint the outside of the tissue box Bahama Blue.
    3. Cut decorative papers to fit all four sides of the tissue box and use Americana Matte Decou-Page to adhere the papers to the box sides.
    4. To make polka dots, use the handle end of the #12 flat brush dipped alternately in Bright Orange and Moon Yellow to add dots randomly to the top of the box. Bigger polka dots can be added by dipping a pencil eraser into paint and using it as a stamp.
    5. Tie a bow around the box, if desired.
