Felt-tissue-holder-Crafts-Unleashed-1Supplies needed to make your own felt pouch tissue holder:


Step 1: Start by cutting your felt into 6 3/4 by 5 7/8-inch rectangles.

Step 2: Once you’ve cut your rectangles, fold the short end in to meet in the center and pin your sides.

    Thanks for this fun, super easy idea! I just finished making one of these with a cute patterned felt square. Looks a lot better in my purse than tissues left in their plastic packaging. :)
