Pinterest Home Ideas For Tissue Holder.

I watch Big Bang Theory religiously and I can probably rattle off each episode word for word because of the number

of times I have watched it. Now I have always loved the home decor they used for the set and I zoned into the Rubik’s cube that sits on the side table. I needed to have it for myself and I came up with a way to make one for myself (diy home decor crafts). My friends could not understand my fixation with having this item in my space (girls home decor) but they helped me anyway! We used an old shoebox to create the body of the Rubik’s cube tissue box. I cut out two corners from the box from the opposite ends and glued them together, it would be the body of the tissue box (diy home decor projects). Next, I cut out a square piece of the remaining material on the shoebox, this will be the removable part that allows for the tissue box to be filled; on the box we built I used an X-Acto blade to create a space that would allow the bottom part to slide in and out with no problem all I needed to add to it was the ribbon to complete the tissue box.

After, I bought sheets of colored paper to give Rubik’s cube effect, but before that happened we had to cut out mock pieces of paper and place them on the actual box to make sure that we get the right size for each face. When that was done we cut the pieces according to what we measured. Lastly, I used modge podge to put the colored squares on the faces of the box, however, it looked a mess while it dried (laughs). So now our Rubik’s cube tissue box has dried and looks just as good as the one Sheldon has. We can now put in our tissue and start binge watching our favorite series!

These two corners will give us the main body of the Rubik’s cube tissue box, just make sure you measure for a square shaped box (decorating home ideas).

I had to cut a sliding space for the bottom of the box.

I had to cut a sliding space for the bottom of the box.

Using my X-Acto blade I cut a small space that would serve as a drawer for the bottom of the Rubik’s cube tissue box.

So I glued a ribbon to the edge of the square that will allow me to remove it at will and put the tissue in the box (diy home design).

I cut out some squares out that looks like the colored squares on the Rubik’s cube.

This took me a while to complete, I had to use mock squares on the box to make sure that whatever I cut out would be the right size for the tissue box, however, I saved the day by cutting colored paper and I didn’t have to individually color the blocks!

I know it looks a bit icky with all the modge podge still showing!

So this is the before look after I stuck everything on with the modge podge, I get that it looks messy and amateurish, but it will look better once it dries.

Now that everything is dried it looks good!

The Rubik’s cube tissue box is looking really good now that it is dried and I think we can get the tissue in now.

I put the tissue into the box and I think this would give the Big Bang Theory’s Rubik’s cube a run for its money.
