    I saw this cute couch tissue box cover on a website. Does anyone know where I can find some "free" templates for it? Of if anyone knows where I can purchase the pattern I would really like to get started on this project for my Christmas gifts. Any help or information is appreciated!!

    I have one of those and I love it - I hope someone comes up with an answer - these would be great for a craft sale.

    My thoughts exactly... Are all tissue boxes the exact size size, regardless of brands??

    I don't think so - some of the rectangle boxes are taller - I know because I have one of these tissue covers and I bought the taller box and it wouldn't fit.

    I love them! I don't think I've ever seen anything so cute in my life! Maybe I need to befriend some teachers so I can make them some :D

    All you need to do is cut one long easy curved piece from template plastic and two short easy curved pieces for the arms. Get some scrap paper out and make a few drawings.

    **************

    Yes, most are standard sizes. There are several heights, but they are similar from brand to brand.
