DIY: floral tissue box

Imagine: You're watching a movie and this really sad scene comes up and you just can't help but bawl your eyes out. You look around... Damn it! No tissues in the room. It may sound silly but this happens to me all the time (what can I say, I'm an emotional gal). I keep telling myself to get a box of tissues but I always forget. So when I found this wooden box I decided to create my own unique piece that I can once and for all make a part of my interior. And of course that had to involve flowers. 
Here's what I used:

5 simple steps:

1. First mix some paint with a tiny bit of water (a few drops will do).
2. Start with the top and then paint the sides. To make the painting easier, I put my box onto some old dictionaries.
3. Let dry, apply a second coat and let dry again. I let it rest for about 4 hours.
4. Once the box is painted you can choose where you want to place the flowers. For each flower, mark with a little dot.
5. Now you can easily attach the flowers to the box with a bit of superglue.

Hope you enjoyed this! 
Have a lovely day!
