Reversible tissue box cover

It's allergy season, right?

Maybe we just have too many cats, but in my house, there is a box of tissue parked in every room. Sometimes, multiple boxes. Here’s a cute way to make them more of an accessory to a room than an eyesore. Best of all, it takes just minutes to finish. Oh, wait. No … best of all is that it’s reversible, so it’s like two, two, two covers in one!

The tutorial and pattern for this project can be found at Pink Penguin. Visit that site to see the exact measurements of the pattern pieces. But you’ll just need small pieces for this project. I chose to skip the elastic band she put at the bottom of the cover. For me, it wasn’t necessary. Some people may prefer it, though.
