    Here is a few of the Tissue Holders I made. These are super easy and the fun part is matching fabrics to make them. Enjoy
    Have an awesome day!

    Jenniky............Your tissue holders are so cute & you really matched up your fabrics to look so nice. I love them all & am anxious to get started on mine. I will share pictures as soon as I get one done.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    These are fun and quick to make. I did up a bunch for co workers as welcome to the new year gifts. TFS

    These are all very cute, but neither Kleenex or Puffs or even generic brands in the dollar stores open on the side anymore. Anyone make tissue holders that open at the top like the new tissue packs do?

    I will have to look again. For the past year or so, it seems, I have only found one that fold over and fit in a pocket nicely.

    This project was fun; once you got started it was almost hard to stop. Thank you so much for the tutorial and the fun of making them. This is what I came up with this morning.

    I got some at Walmart last week and they open so that you can pull the tissue out of the top.

    I found I could very carefully cut a slit up the middle of the package of tissues since none seem to be sold with the opening where we need it !

    This is the front and the back of the individual package. They are Kleenex and come eight in a pack. I have purchased them at Walmart and Dollar General.

    Thank you Quiltingmimipj for the visual. That will really help.

    I hope our Walmart carries them. So often I go to look for a product that has been recommended on the QB, only to find our Walmart doesn't carry it.

    They are sew much fun to make and are very addictive! For a long time it was hard to find Kleenex to fit these holders, but now I have seen them at Target and they come in packages of 4 for $1.00. Kleenex has also come out with an already-decorated packaging.

    Jenniky, thanks for the great project. These are my first attempt at making them. They will be an easy gift for whenever-whoever. I made 2 of each fabric choices in about 1/2 hour.

    I am working on my squares & rectangle BOM for July, but really am anxious to sew up a few of these little jewels. All that have been posted shows just how cute they are and the interest in this project.

    These tissue holders were really fun to make. They are kind of like a piece of Chocolate or potato chips you can not have just one. The black w/pink one is for my DSIL. I made her a hand bag with the black and used the pink fabric for the lining, she will be surprised.

    More of my tissue holders plus the small handbags I made to match. The black, white, and red is one that I Zentangled on and it's matching tissue holder. The first two are beaded and added buttons that were in my mothers and grandmother's button boxes. This has been a fun project. Thanks.
