So many of you asked for the pattern for the Wellness Wishes tissue holder that I shared with my demonstrator group last night, that I decided to just post it here, rather than emailing it to everyone.

I am usually not too good with directions and/or pattens, but I am happy to share the pattern I came up with for the Wellness Wishes tissue holder. You can see more photos of this project in my post from yesterday (June 30th). I have attached a photo of the pattern I used and then what the pattern looks like when it is cut out. I used my large oval punch to put the hole in the middle of the top so you could pull the tissues out.

I suggest you punch and decorate your box completely before putting it together. It is much easier to work with when it is one flat piece, as opposed to a box that's open on one end.

I have labeled on the photos where I put my tape. I did use sticky strip, and I placed it in three spots only! 1) across the scored area on the top of the box, which is taped to the back of the box; 2) one end of the box; and 3) the tab that gets taped to the end of the box.

I only taped one end of the box shut so that you can open the other end of the box and insert your tissues. I used a small pack (purse pack I think they call them) of tissues.

I suggest you tape the end of your box shut first, insert your tissues and then tape the top of your box to the back of your box. With the tissues already inside your box it is a little easier to get the top taped on straight.

The full pattern photo (before it is cut) indicates score lines with dashes and cut lines are solid. Here are your measurements:

Cut your cardstock to 10" x 7"
Score the 10" side at 1/4", 2 1/2", 3 1/2", 5 3/4"
Score the 7" side at 1/2", 1 1/2", 5 1/2" and 6 1/2"

Then simply cut your pattern on the solid lines as indicated in the photograph.

I hope this helps a bit. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at
