DIY Tissue Holder

I am a very emotional person.  And I always lose it when a bride walks down the aisle and as much as I know I am going to cry, I never seem to have enough tissues.  So, for my wedding, I wanted to make sure there were little tissue packets for guests to take.  I scoured the internet for different DIY ideas and came across one for a fabric tissue holder.  I thought this would be the perfect for the guests and a neat take away that every woman could use in their purse, car, or in a diaper bag.

Here is the tutorial from Two Brown Birds : DIY Tissue Holder with Pattern

I went to Joann’s and pick up contrasting prints and I also used scraps that I had.  I made around 40 (for 140 guests and had a few left over) and spend around $5-$7.  I picked up a few boxes of tissues from the dollar store and inserted four folded tissues in each holder.  I also recommend making a sign by the tissues so people realize what they are.  Something like : For your happy tears, For those tears of joy, or For when you boo hoo as they say I do.
