Press firmly or pile some heavy books on it for 10 - 15 minutes, so the glue gets a great chance to adhere to the tissue box. Turn the box over to the inside, and trim off the scrapbook paper following the pattern of the box.
Fold the box back together with the sides first and glue. Fold and glue the bottom of the box. Insert the tissue that you had set aside and then fold the top of the box down and glue it. You will need to hold the box for a few minutes to ensure that the glue has a chance to hold.
Your box could be finished at this point, or you could do what I have pictured and I cut out a cute border to glue around the box to make it even more cutsie! Another idea would be to print out the name of the person that you are going to give it to on a strip of contrasting paper and glue it around the box. There you have it.... a Cute Tissue box!!! Whew, I wish I had thought of this years ago. No more pet peeve!
Also, if you use a very heavy card stock, then you could use the disassembled tissue box for the template and draw around it on to the scrapbook paper. ( I suggest two sided as it would be cute on the inside and the out.) You would need to score the folds using a pen and ruler to get them straight and fold it the way the tissue box is folded. Easy huh?
