Tissue Box & Washi Tape Bookmarks (Guest Post From Madalyn @ Home Hearted)

Hello! My name is Madalyn and I nest over at Home Hearted where I blog about all things crafty and homey. I am so thrilled to be here on Restoration Beauty today! I have been following Selene for quite sometime and we are just now starting to really get to know one another and create one of those unique blogging friendships! If you are someone who wants to start a blog, but a little nervous to do so, I encourage you to just do it, because I was there and I'm so glad I finally made that choice! More bloggers are always welcome and its such a fun learning experience, don't miss out! I know that was slightly off topic, but just had to share it : ) Now here is my guest post on how to make your own lovely recycled tissue box and washi tape bookmarks!


This is my last simple gift idea from my series before Christmas and I think its my favorite because I came up with it all on my own, well, basically.


My inspiration came from this sweet little bookmark: 


I picked it up at my local library. One of the librarians had cut up a bunch of Christmas cards into bookmarks and they had them by the circulation desk for patrons to take. I thought it was such a beautiful gesture and creative idea. I kept thinking about how could I do something similar, but take it to another level. I had these tissue boxes with really pretty designs and thought those would be a good starting point and would also make a sturdy bookmark. Then I've been wanting to use washi tape for a long time and thought this would be a perfect opportunity!

Supplies needed:

Discarded tissue boxes (or decorative cardstock or old greeting cards)
Washi tape
Stickers
Scissors
Paper cutter
Hole puncher
Ribbon


Directions:

Cut your paper or cardboard into desired lengths and widths. Decorate with washi tape and stickers. Punch a hole at the top and pull some ribbon through and secure.


I didn't end up spending much on these between the stickers and washi tape I probably spent $5 because I had coupons. Also you probably won't use all of the washi tape and stickers. So, over all I think this is a truly frugal Christmas gift, but also a thoughtful and pretty one! You can also try making all Christmas one's using your old Christmas cards and making some that are more appealing for men.



I hope you've enjoyed this simple gift idea post and visit Home Hearted on Saturday for a recap of all five simple gift ideas!

Thank you so much Selene for this wonderful opportunity to share with your followers!

This is so creative, I love it! I've always got empty tissue boxes and I just bought some washi tape on clearance. I like the addition of the ribbon too. Great idea!
