    You know, I'm amazed at how such a seemingly simple item can really evoke some huge "wow" from the recipients. I received a thank you note from our school principal after I had one of the kids give her one after she had told me in an email that she had a rough morning at home. I mailed a black one to a friend with a sympathy card after her MIL died. She said that she's showing everyone & no one has seen them before. I found the tissue packs in the tissue aisle at WalMart. they have some "fancy" ones out now that won't work in these, but the old-fashioned ones still exist.

    What a great idea to put them in a card! Thanks for the suggestion, this will be in many of my cards now!

    Thank-you so much for the wonderful tutorial!!!! I decided to make these for all the ladies in the Bible studies I facilitate. THEN I decided that why just give them one made of Christmas fabric, they should have one to use after the holidays! So I've made 60, they are indeed fast. I'd cut the pieces, then I chain sewed all the pieces, then I chain pressed, then chained sewed the overcast and turned them while watching TV.

    I found the packets of tissue that open at the top at our Dollar Tree...eight packs for a dollar. Even if you cannot find the slit at the top tissues, why couldn't you just make a little slit at the top yourself?

    These would make cute gifts if you have a lot to make for a quilt group or other for that matter. Great use for scraps.

    you need two pieces of fabric, one main piece and one for the lining

    Attachment 169768


    sew 1/4 inch seam along both ends of the 5 1/2 sides, right sides together

    Attachment 169769


    turn right sides out and press so that your lining fabric shows evenly on both sides of your main fabric

    Attachment 169770


    bring both sides to the center and press

    Attachment 169771


    sew across the ends using 1/4" seam

    Attachment 169772


    then zig zag stitch across the same ends

    Attachment 169773


    Turn the tissue holder right side out, use a point turner to poke the corners neatly

    Thanks for the tutorial. I have made these before and they are SUPER. I like to box the corners (like the bottom corners of a totebag)

    I made 35 of these for church and even though I was a bit leery of some of the scraps I used they all turned out great and everyone loved them and thought I spent a lot of time on them. I told them that I did not give cards out this year because I wanted to do something they could enjoy all year long.

    Cool Super super easy tissue holder

    I tried making these with orphan blocks for the main/outside fabric, and starched satin linings on a few of them. This is a wonderful way to use up some scraps. Thanks!

    They are so cute, I've been making these for years now. They are very easy. I sat down a few weeks back and sewn some too and when I was done I had 16. Didn't check how long but it wasn't very long.
    Did everybody have a wonderful Valentines Day?? I had a great one.

    Our local Walmart carries the ones split in middle--figured out the reason they split them at the top is so they can sit in compartments in purses and you can just lift out the tissues. Bet the pattern could be adjusted for the top to be open though.

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. Ive made a few of them out of Hawaiian material. They have come out so nice. I gave away a few of them and everyone who got one just loves them. I showed my sister how to make them and she is so happy. I love them and its so easy to make. Thank you again. aloha Blossom

    When I make these tissue holders I take the tissues out of the pack and place them in the holder. I keep them on hand for quick small gifts, they are always appreciated. Have to make some more am down to my last one.

    I made 16 of these for a church function last night in a couple of hours and I'm making a bunch more, today. I thought they could be given to the 2nd highest bidders on the Silent Auction as "consolation prizes." (Here you go - dry your tears! )

    I was given one years ago at a guild meeting and it was so cute and so practical - very thoughtful on the part of the maker/giver, but not at all expensive or time-consuming to make a bunch!

    Love them. I made a whole bunch of them in no time. I went to the Christmas Tree Shoppe at the local Tanger outlet and bought really neat packages of tissues and I stuffed them all. When I open my drawer they look like miniature pillows and make me smile every time. Thanks for the tutorial.
