What you'll need to make this bandage is tissues, tape, and a marker.

Step 2: Time to Make It!

Fold Tissus until a bit bigger than wound.

Hold tissuse down while drawing whatever you like on what you want to be the front of the bandage.

Step 4: Time for Tape! Part 1

Cut a little piece of tape & put it on the 1 end on the middle of the side. Do this 3 more times on the other sides. When your done you will have a little pad of tissuse on the back middle

Step 5: Time for Marker! Part 2

On the back of your bandage. Draw a line right by the tape ( the side closest to middle.) you will get some marker on the tape. ( Don't worry, you're supposed to do that.)

Step 6: Time for Tape! Part 2

Now cut a little piece of tape fold it so it's like a piece of double sided tape ( it will be sticky on both sides ) put tape on the edges diagonally. Do the same thing on the other 3 sides.

    Non-stick dressings are best for a wet wound, but protecting a sealed, healing wound is still important. I prefer Viva table napkins and cloth tape as a soft pad to protect from re-injury.

    Infection? Pfft. Germs build the immune system.

    I really wouldn't recommend this.

    If you put tissue paper on an open wound the tissue paper will get stuck in the wound causing a route for infection.

    When you come to remove the tissue it will pull the scab off reopening the wound and/or leave bits of tissue paper in the wound.
