A Quick Gift Idea


Happy Friday, everyone!  I know it has been a while since I posted, but I have been enjoying time with family and friends and I am sure you have too.  I did want to share a speedy tutorial for making a quick little gift or stocking stuffer.  At the DS, I bought a package of 6 tissue packs for your purse…they’re 2”x4” in size, so that’s the measurement I used when I worked this up.  If you have tissues of a different size, you may need to adjust your measurements:






You can use cardstock or DP, whichever you like, just adjust your scoring “heaviness” accordingIy!!

I decorated these with images from Every Little Bit, and punched them out with 1” circle punch and 1 1/4” scallop punch.  You can decorate them any way you like, really!


Sorry for the awful photos, but I was trying to do this before Cassidy arrived! If you’d like to have a written set of directions, just email me and I’ll send you the document.  Please don’t leave your request in the comment section!  Have a terrific weekend!


Thought I’d share this photo of DH, too….I was recycling some SU packaging paper by stamping on it to make wrapping paper, and I corralled him into helping me:


He did a mighty fine job, too….he thought the clear stamps were ingenious!

Stunning pic of Cassidy and DH doesn't look too shabby either!! If only I could get mine to help like that.....

LeAnne what a cute little project. Love these tissue holders. I am thinking for the ladies on Christmas Eve.

The tissue box cover is such a clever and useful little gift, and I love Cassidy's big smile! She's growing much too quickly!
I've tried to get my DH to stamp, but he refuses! I should show him this post :)
