    Great tutorial and so creative! I wonder if it would be possible to use strips of elastic under which to slip the tissues?

    Yes to be honest I think the friend who showed me how to make these yrs and yrs ago, used 1/4" elastic but the ribbon works just as well so I'd say it is a matter of choice

    I have concerns with using elastic - would it catch on the tissue?

    You may be right about that. I was just thinking that it would be easier to put the tissues in and get them out again. Won't know until we try it.

    Regardless, this is a GREAT idea for gift giving and I am going to share it with my quilting buddies. Am already thinking of how to jazz it up in different ways.

    Don't you just love it when new ideas surface! :thumbup:

    My friend always did hers with elastic and had no problems at all..but I just like the looks of the ribbon better so I tend to use the ribbon more....and how will you "jazz it up" ??? :lol:

    I love this idea! You could possibly put a spot of Velcro at the center to keep the case folded. I like the use of ribbon at fold lines to keep tissue in place.
