DIY Pretty Vintage Storage Box

Hi, everyone! Who doesn't like vintage and shabby chic?! Right? :) I turned one of my empty tissue boxes into cute vintage storage box. Super easy, few materials and things to store inside.
What you need:

1. Empty tissue box;

2. Glue;

3. Scrapbook paper or decorative contact paper;

4. Ribbon and 4 small beads (or button) to secure the top (optional).
Here are the steps:

1. Cut the top part of the box, but not all the way. Leave the back part to form an opening cover.

2. Use a decorative contact paper – this is the easiest way, but since I didn’t have such, I just printed this design on a normal A4 paper and then covered it with transparent contact paper for glossy finish.

3. Cover all sides of the box with the contact paper.

4. With some white thread, tie up all of the beads and form them into a button shape.

5. Then glue them to the center of the non moving part of the box.

6. Make a small loop from the ribbon and glue it. This is used for securing the lid.

7. I used a colorful tissue paper flower to decorate the top.
And that's it!
