My family can't stop talking about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story© TM Lucasfilm LTD and how they want to see it. Moms, are you experiencing the same thing?! When I put a Kleenex brand box featuring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story designs on my husband's night stand, naturally it attracted the attention of everyone. So what do you do when everyone LOVES the package something came in? Repurpose it, of course! With a simple hole (or two) you can create your own Kleenex brand ft. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story designs DIY night light!
The designs on the side of the box are very cool, featuring images from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And, if you have two boxes, the imagery matches up to form a full scene!
Naturally, you'd place your Kleenex brand box featuring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story designs next to a model of the Death Star on your night stand. Because that's what Rogue One: A Star Wars Story fans do. I'm pretty sure everyone has a Death Star on their nightstand… my husband is pretty happy about it.
Though my decorating tips are pretty amazing, I know what you're here for: the DIY night light tutorial. Here's what you'll need to make it:
- Kleenex brand box featuring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story designs
- battery powered tea lights
- packing tape
- hole punch – you can use more than one size if you like
This project is very simple to create. Once the Kleenex brand box featuring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story designs is empty, it's time to get started. Now, if you're like my family, you might not want to wait that long because, well, Kleenex brand tissues last a while. Watch this video to see what happened after I put the Kleenex brand box featuring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story designs on the nightstand and my family found them:
I used a mutli-colored tea light for a really cool effect in the box!
You can use an awl of a freestyle hole punch (like the ones crafters use for leather) but I figured most people had a regular handheld hole punch so that is what I used. Watch this video from Kleenex to see how they made another version of this DIY night light:
Whether we're watching a movie together or poking holes in an empty tissue box to make a night light, quality time spent together is a great way to show you care. That's one of the main themes of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, where ordinary people are tasked to do extraordinary things by coming together. Okay, maybe sharing a tissue isn't going to save the world but it does make a bright spot in the universe when we reach out and share a Kleenex tissue or share our time together.

Now the question is, who gets to keep the night light in their room?
