How to Make a Kleenex Tissue Holder

Updated on October 3, 2011

How to Make a Kleenex Tissue Holder

Make a fashion statement with these cute little Kleenex tissue holders. They take about 10 minutes to make and the material can cost as little as one dollar. They are ideal for personal use but also make great party favors. Use wedding theme material to make wedding favors, baby theme material for baby shower favors, flower material for garden and tea parties, sports theme material for the sports fans in your life or make several different ones to sell on the Internet or craft shows. The ideas are endless. I have several of these cute little tissue holders. I keep one tissue holder in my purse, one in the car, one on my nightstand and one on my work desk. They really do come in handy.

Directions for Making a Kleenex Tissue Holder

Use a 1/4-in. seam allowance. Don't add 1/4-in to the fabric, just sew at the 1/4-in line.

1. Cut 2 pieces of fabric. 7" H x 7-1/2" W each. (1 is for the lining and 1 is for the outside)

2. Place the fabric right sides together and then stitch a 1/4" seam around all the edges leaving a 2" opening along the bottom

3. With scissors, trim the seam allowance close to the stitching on all sides except the bottom.

4. Turn right side out through the opening at the bottom.

5. Push all the corners out. Lay flat and then iron it.

6. Fold it in half vertically to create a center crease and then open it up again.

7. Fold each side towards the middle so they meet at the creased center line and then pin.

8. Stitch across the short ends (top and bottom) with a 1/4" seam making sure to reinforce the outer edges as well as the overlap.

9. Turn it right side out and insert a small packet of tissues.

      These are really cute designs. I bet the template could be altered a little to fit baby wipes containers too. I've featured your lens on my "50 Craft Ideas for Adults" page. Great Job!

      Thank you so much for the great idea & the instructions! I always carry a small pack of tissue in my purse, one in my laptop bag and one in each coat, but the plastic wrapper on the tissue always gets mangled and the tissues bunch up which is very frustrating! I bet one of these holders would prevent all that nonsense! I'm going to make some with some vintage fabric.

      This how to page is welcome as I used to have a tissued paper holder but can't seem able to find it - don't know where I hided it. Therefore, I'll have to make one myself.

      Thanks for this lens! I added the link to this lens to my website at This is a good project to recycle fabrics from old things like shirts, pants, sheets, etc. Great idea to add the sewing products from Zazzle! Thanks again Karen (*)
