If you purchase Kleenex hand towels, you can transform the box into a mail box. I actually bought these Kleenex hand towels last year for 90% off at Target after Christmas.

This is a great way to organize your mail. If you have a lot of mail, you may want to put a rock inside so the box doesn't tip over.

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • Kleenex hand towel box
  • acrylic paint of your choice
  • paint brush
  • cotton ball
  • clothespin
  • glue stick
  • cardboard glittery letters


  1. Cut/peel off the plastic from your box.

  3. Paint the box with a color/colors of your choice. I mixed together and used - red, gray, and pink acrylic paint. Allow this paint layer to dry.
  4. Once dried, I wanted some texture, as well as to hide the Christmas trees, so I used a cotton ball with a clothespin and dab/painted colors. Allow to dry.
  5. Use any stickers, cardboard letters, or handwrite letters on your box. My box is going to be for mail, so I glued on letters to spell out MAIL.
