Tissue Pack Wrap Tutorial

By Barbara Welch, Creative Stampin' Spot

As I promised yesterday, the Tutorial is ready to go. I was inspired by a demonstrator at convention who made these. I basically measured the pack of tissues I purchased and then made my pattern

Things you will need:

Stamp Sets I used Snow Buddies, Serene Snowflakes, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Basic Grey, Bashful Blue
Markers: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Only Orange
Base (Bashful Blue shown) 4-1/2" x 8-1/2"
Whisper White layer (shown stamped with snowman) 1-5/8" x 1-7/8"
Brocade Blue layer 1-3/4" x 2"
Ribbon - 15"
Pocket Pack of Tissues
Scoring Tools
SNAIL adhesive
Sticky Strip
Paper Snip
Scallop Oval or Large Oval Punch

Begin by cutting the Bashful Blue Cardstock to 4-1/2 x 8-1/2"

If using a scoring board, score along the 8-1/2" edge as follows:
2" - 3" - move left edge of paper to 1/4" mark and score at 5-1/2" - 6-1/2"

If using a Bone Folder with a ruler, use the marks on the grid paper, score along the 8-1/2" edge as follows:
2" - 3" - 5-1/4" - 6-1/4"

Stamp the Snowflake images using Bashful Blue Ink onto the Bashful Blue cardstock. I used the three different images and did random stamping all over.

Use an Oval Punch to punch an opening in the center of the largest end panel (2-1/4")

Place sticky strip on the underneath (unstamped) side along this edge.

Place Ribbon in the middle portion of the cardstock and tie a knot on top closer to the right side.

Stamp the "get well wishes" under the knot but above the score line.

Fold along all score lines; using a pencil, mark where the oval should be punched on the other end panel.

Punch the oval.

Now you are ready to assemble

Place the tissue pack in the center

Fold the shortest end in first

Remove the protective cover from the sticky strip adhesive

Then fold the largest (2-1/4") end over on top of the smaller panel and making sure to align the ovals. Press to adhere.

Here is the front/top view

Here is the back view with the tissues pulled through

I stamped the snowman in Basic Grey and colored in the images with markers.
Then mounted this onto the Brocade Blue layer. Using Stampin' Dimensionals, adhere this to the top over the ribbon.

Wow great tutorial! Thank you so much!

This is too cute. But what happens when the tissues are almost gone? Won't the plastic package inside slide out the ends?? I think I am going to make mine with a ribbon around the whole thing and a flap with magnet closure to add more tissues.

This is a great idea, especially with this flu season. I can see giving out kits that include the tissue paper, travel size hand sanitizer, and some hot cocoa or tea. Thanks for sharing.
