How to make a flower vase from a tissue box

Display an artificial flower arrangement in a decorative cube vase constructed from a tissue box. The best part of this craft is that it makes an excellent gift idea. The decorative paper and floral arrangement may be customized for a holiday, season, birthday, or celebration.
When choosing a tissue box for this craft, use a square box that resembles a cube. Remove all tissues from the box prior to designing a flower vase. While it's possible to use wrapping paper to cover the sides of the tissue box, consider using a more durable paper. Vintage decorative paper, scrapbook paper, and even wallpaper may be used to create this vase.
