Touches of Texture, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Get Well Tissue Holder, Weekend Project

About 500 emails ago (in a few days) I was asked about a tissue holder that I had posted on my blog almost 10 years ago.  Apparently the links to the instructions are no longer available.  Some people take down their blogs when they are no longer into whatever it was that got them starting on that blog.  Here it was stamping. It's sad that happens because the blog doesn't cost anything and it can be left open for others to go to now and then to get inspired or to find instructions.  I have no intentions of no longer blogging and should I decide to, I will leave my blog up.  Anyway, I knew I didn't have the tissue holder, it's been a long time since it was created and I don't have room to keep everything I make.  I probably gave it to someone who was under the weather.  You can see my tissue holder here.  It's the one I made back in 2008.

So, I updated it using current paper and in 10 years it will be obsolete too! LOL  But the instructions will be here so that's a positive, right? 
To make this tissue holder you will need a purse pack of tissue. I had gotten mine at the Dollar Tree a while back. I don't know if they still carry these but I'm sure you can find some at Target or Wal-Mart.  I am not sure if they vary by size so you may need to adjust your holder if necessary.  I will be giving you measurements for the one you see here.

You will need tissue, lip balm, card stock, decorative paper, stamped image, markers or whatever it is you like to color with, Snail tape, tiny half pearls, ribbon and scissors.

I cut the base of the holder 3-1/2" x 10".  I scored it at 4-1/2" and 5-1/2". 

Next I cut the layers.  I cut 3 pieces of Pool Party card stock that measured 4-1/8" x 3-1/8".  One goes on top, one goes on the inside top and the third one goes on the inside bottom. The decorative paper is from the "Delightful Daisy" paper pack and measures 4" x 3".  

The image I used came from the "Touch of Texture" set.  I colored in the image using markers.  I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers and then I added the tiny half pearls.  I trimmed that piece to 3-3/8" x 1-3/4".  The Pool Party layer behind it measures 3-1/2" x 1-7/8".  

The words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set and I used the Modern Label punch. I punched one end and then I slid the punched piece in so I could just punch the other end only.  You do this by flipping the punch over and sliding the punched piece in between the blades so you can see the words and how far you need to punch.  

I set the image and the words on using Snail tape. 

I punched two holes in the top part of the holder. You may need to punch the holes more than once, moving it over to make it larger, depending on your ribbon size.  I used 3/8" ribbon and a 1/4" circle punch.  A regular old fashioned paper punch is the correct size.  

I uses Snail tape to affix the tissue pack and the lip balm.  I was going to use glue dots but they are a little stronger than I needed. I didn't want the holder ruined while trying to remove the items.  

These are very fun and simple to make. I think they would be fun to sell at the fall craft fair!

Thank you for visiting today,

Thank you so much for re-posting this tissue box and the instructions. I want to use it in a workshop in the near future.
