    These are really nice. I discovered them right here on the QB and made 14 of them in an afternoon for the girls I work with. They are fast and easy peezy. I like your combo.

    I have made these too. Very nice, and everyone can use them.

    Where do you guys find the tissues that pull out like that? All I can find, is the new design where they come out at the top. (Hope that makes sense)

    This is one of the first projects I teach my beginning 4H sewists. I heard from several parents that their kids made tissue holders for every family member and friend for Christmas gifts. One mom travels a lot and gives the holders as thank you gifts.

    Auntevie - I buy the tissue packages at the Dollar Store. There are 8 rectangular packs for $1 and those fit the holder perfectly.

    We had a family friend hand them out at her wedding. (For those people that never bring a tissue - it was a wonderful idea and we all loved it.)

    I made about 35 of these to hand out to the ladies in the office for Christmas last year. They do work up quite quickly and turn out really cute.
