Super Easy Tissue Holder Tutorial


Cut a piece of cardstock A4 height by the width of your tissues
Score down the shortest part of the card at: 1”, 2”, 4”, 5” and 7”
Fold all scores inward and strengthen folds with a bone folder.
Now place your tissues inside just to check they fit. I have used anything from 4 to 6 tissues as it depends on the brand that you buy.
 

Once you are happy with the fit of the tissues decorate all the panels that will be seen in patterned paper.. When you have done this wrap your cardstock around the tissues again just to ensure you know where to cut the hole for the tissues (sounds basic, but its not very funny when the hole ends up at the bottom.....lol)

Cut the hole with  your Big Shot or draw a rectangle by hand on the back of the panel you are cutting into and cut this out with a craft knife.

Place double sided tape on the first two 1" panels. Place the tissues on your project and wrap the cardstock around them. (as shown in the image above minus the decoration) Join the panels together. 

Finish decoration and you are done.
Hope you give this little holder a try as its really fun and quick to make :)

Happy Crafting Everyone.
