Is it weird that I like to decorate my Kleenex boxes? I have this crafty OCD thing where I like to add affirmations to everything around me. From my paint bottles, to the walls, my journals and even everyday functional items like tissue boxes, right? We’ll call it tissue style, lol! Not only am I going to show how how to make a decorative tissue box, first I’m going to share info about the new Kleenex Style Studio! It’s a fun site with quizzes, sweepstakes ($5K and a trip to NYC!) and trivia about all things Kleenex. Click here to check it out!

To celebrate Kleenex’s 90th anniversary, they’re bringing you another innovative first: The Kleenex® Style Studio. It’s a fun, inspiring way to discover more of the Kleenex® Brand designs and products you love. And maybe even a few that’ll take you by surprise. Whether you’re decorating at home or adding a pop of color to your clutch, Kleenex® has you covered.

These are just some of the new Kleenex designs in stores – there are more than 100 Kleenex styles to choose from! Their goal is to have people show off the boxes instead of hiding them! My favorite is the one that looks kind of Aztec-ish with the zig zags in bright colors. Now you can find your style too!

Kleenex is doing this to celebrate 90 years of style! Did you know:

– Kleenex has been in the MOMA twice!

– Kleenex invented Social in 1941 with a campaign called True Confessions.

– Kleenex started out as facial tissue for removing makeup. They’ve come a long way!

I bought a plain Kleenex box (Cool Touch, my fave!) and used a glue stick and a copy of one of my illustrations and affixed it to the box! Simple! I used one called “kindness is contagious.” I like the way it adds color and cheeriness to my art room!

I have eternally watery eyes, so I always have these purse packs. I’m a sucker for the brights. I love that they come in so many bold colors to fit my personality. I know it is just tissue, but even the smallest details can brighten your day, you know?

I also always have a box on my nightstand. This is Patrick’s nana’s vintage Singer sewing machine that I use as my bedside table. I also keep a notepad for when I think of solutions or ideas in the middle of the night!

To wrap this up – here is a fun video about the Kleenex style studio!
