New Skull & Crossbones Tissue Paper!

This new skull and crossbones patterned tissue paper is just too cute to be "spooky"! It's also not just for Hallowe'en either; it's perfect for anyone and any occasion.

Here are a couple of examples of how you can use our skull and crossbones tissue - use 1 sheet of tissue paper to band around a giftbox (you may need to use 2 sheets for a larger box); first, we cut the tissue paper in half lengthwise, then folded it to the desired width for our box. We then accented with a green coloured satin ribbon and attached a small sheer ribbon bow to the front of the box.

For a giftbag, use 2 or 3 sheets of tissue paper to make nice "poufs" for the top of the giftbag. Don't forget to accent with some ribbon; purple works well with the black and white scheme.


Hopefully, this has inspired you to use our new skull and crossbones tissue paper for all year-round gift giving...but remember, it still works for Hallowe'en too!
