Here is a great post to teach you about making cute Tissue boxes from scratch. Great benefits of making your own tissue boxes include;

1. They can be personalized and designed to suit your syle.
2. They are multipurpose in nature, can dispense either tissue, wipes, napkins , serviettes or scented wipes. That is they can dispense but are indispensable.
3. They last longer than ordinary store bought tissue boxes and prevent wastage as they can be used time and time over again.
4. Easy to clean, not necessary washing, just wipe the outer surface with a clean cloth . If there is so much stain, dip the cleaning cloth in a warm soapy water, add few drops of thinner and wipe the stain.
5. Customized tissue boxes are more beautiful and attractive.
