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.
You will need:
- Sewing Machine
- Tape Measure/Ruler
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.
