Tissue Slider (Video Tutorial)

I recently saw a commercial on TV showing a cue little tissue gift you could order for a friend. I thought it was brilliant! But, it was ugly... LOL! So, you know I had to come up with one that was WAY cuter! 

The outside looks like this...

And then you slide it open and it looks like this. You can write your message on the inside part. We've got LOTS of sniffles here in South Texas right now. This would be perfect!!


And then, I thought about a friend who recently lost her mother. I was thinking how I just couldn't find the words to tell her how I was feeling and didn't want to upset her more. So I said nothing. Ugh! So, what if I just wrote her a little note and put it on a pack of tissues? 

The sentiment says it all. I think it's a very thought full gift (if I do say so myself! Ha!) 

So, not hard at all, and I think I will make some up and keep them around. I am going to the Post office today and am going to see how much they would cost to ship. 

So, check out the video and make some yourself!

  2. I love it :) How sweet is this and I am with you sometimes words can't express how you want to let someone know you are feeling their sorrow! I am so making these for my Grand's class next year for cold and flu season :) Thank you for inspiring us.

  3. Such a great idea, Erica! I have so many soft tissue packs in my stash that I will be able to use for a quick little gift for someone under the weather. I loved the Sympathy one too! Thank you for sharing all your wonderful creative works of art! :)
