Tissue Holder!

While surfing other stamping blogs on the net I found this cute tissue holder. I have made other tissue holders that are actually a box and have them posted here on my blog. This one is easier to make and just as cute.

I found the original idea for this by Sandy at Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps. There you will find the easy tutorial on how to make the tissue holder.

On Sandy's holder she attached a couple of cough drops. On mine I added a tube of lip balm. That is what Chrissy did with hers, I found it on her blog Creating with Chrissy. I liked the idea of the lip balm much better than the cough drops. It just seemed funny giving someone meds even if they are over the counter ones. I figured giving someone lip balm is less dangerous than cough drops. It's always best to play on the safer side.

I think these would be a great craft fair item. They are easy enough to make, they really don't take a lot of time and they are actually fun to do!!! These could easily be changed into some type of cold and flu emergency kit. Increase the center area by adding a bit of card stock length to the center and including a packet of Cup-a-Soup! You can use your imagination and come up with other "kits" to make with this pattern!!!

The papers I used in my tissue holder are Riding Hood Red and the decorative paper is from the "Candy Lane" package. I used Riding Hood Red ribbon on the top. I used the back side of the striped paper on the inside of the holder. I wanted something light in color there so something could be written or words stamped there.

This item was made using Stampin' Up! products. To view more items made using Stampin' Up! products click here.

Where can I find the measurements? when to the other sites and there was nothing mentioned. Thanks.

This was posted about 10 years ago and the site that has the instructions is apparently no longer up and running. It's sad that people take down their blogs when they don't really need to. They can sit dormant and others can still stop by to view and be inspired by the posts. I will see if I can come up with a current tissue holder and leave measurements for it. Should I ever stop my card blog, I will not take it down. There's too much fun stuff on here that can be updated to today's current colors and styles.
