Pocket Tissue Holder

by Vicki Parson

Give a cute tissue pack for a get well gift.


  • Cardstock for base
  • Patterned or stamped paper
  • Oval punch or die, or shape of choice for tissue opening area
  • Score board
  • Strong double-sided adhesive
  • Pocket tissues with opening at the center of the package
  • Corner rounder (optional)
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project


  1. Step 1

    Trim cardstock base to 11" x 4 1/4".

    If cutting a full sheet of cardstock, use the other piece to make two holders at the same time.

  2. Step 2

    Score on the 11" side at 1/2", 3", 4" & 6 1/2".

  3. Step 3

    Reinforce score lines with a bone folder and attach patterned paper to the panels.

    3/4" x 4" (front strip)
    2 1/4" x 4" (top area)
    3 1/4" x 4" (backing area)

  4. Round the top corners if desired.

  5. Step 4

    Use an oval punch or die to create an opening where the tissues will come out.

    You may have to fold the flap to get the punch further in.

  6. Step 5

    Decorate the back of the tissue holder with stamps, images and sentiments, or add embellishments.

  7. Use nesting dies or punches to create a frame for the opening, if desired.

  8. Step 6

    Using strong adhesive on the bottom flap, line up the tissue pack and secure the flap in place to the back of the holder. The tissues can slide in and out at either end.

  9. Step 7

    Complete the project.

What size is the oval punch for the get well tissue?

I would like to make this project. What size is the oval punch?

Hi Terry! I have used the SU! brand large oval punch, but mine is the older style. The newer style you could probably reach through without having to fold that flap. The SU! Scallop oval was used for the decorative frame as well. Hope to see your creation in the gallery! smile

I just love this project. I was able to find the tissues at Walmart. Thanks Vicky. I've now made a few and will be putting it on my blog with full reference to you and Splitcoasters.

Thank you for the tutorial. I showed one to co-workers and now I am making many tissue holders. They loved it. This is so easy to make.

I have also seen the Kleenex Go Pack in WalMart. They have the sticker that is used to close the opening section of the plastic wrap. I got some there.

I have tried two different travel packs of tissue that open in the middle and either one will pull up through the opening very easy and will not bring another one up like in the picture. Maybe I am using the wrong kind of tissue package. Help please.

Sharon, Try making the opening on the tissue cover a little larger to help pull the tissues through. I've used the Kleenex brand pocket tissues, but none of them are made to pull out the next tissue in line like the larger box of tissues are (if this is what you mean). You will have to pull out each one. Since the holder is made from card stock and small in size, you may need to hold the item in your hand when pulling out a tissue.

Thanks so much...I just love this project...I will try that.
