A "Don’t Forget" Mail Organizer

Materials: Grundtal Tissue Box

Description: You’ll need:
1. A Grudtal tissue box
2. Chalkboard vinyl contact paper
3. Sharpie (optional)
4. Good magnets

1. Cut and apply the vinyl paper to the entire box or portions of it.

2. Optional. I used a sharpie and a ruler to decorate the box with a pinstripe.

3. Mount the box

The magnets stick right onto the vinyl paper as well.

[Note: the key hook is a separate item mounted right below.]

    You can buy the vinyl (which is simply a black contact paper – I bet ANY type would be writable) online or at a craft store. I bought mine a Michael’s crafts in California.

    The tissue box is made with pre-drilled mounting holes…but a simple drill will do the trick.

    How did you mount it? I love this idea!

    This is pretty cool! One of my first thoughts though is that you’ll also need chalk. You could skip the contact paper, chalk, and eraser and just write on the tissue box itself with a dry erase marker (which can be erased with a paper towel). Definitely not as elegant though. :)
