DIY - Tears of Joy

I have had a problem at the past few weddings I have attended - I started crying but had no Kleenex!!!! Big problem! So, I am going to (possibly) take on a DIY project to alleviate the no tissue problem for my guests because if they are anything like me they will run out the door and accidentally forget the Kleenex!

Martha to the rescue!!! Martha's website has a great 'Tissue Pouch' project.

Supplies you will need are as follows:
  • 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper (sturdy yet pliable)
  • Kleenex
  • Stamp
  • Silk Flower (also optional)

That sounds economical and easy enough! For full directions on the how-to go to Martha Stewart Weddings. Hopefully I will have a pretty little basket sitting at the entrance of the theater with these bad boys in the basket for guests to take as they are seated. What do you think?!? Are you supplying Kleenex for your guests?

Coming next.....more DIY projects that yours truly is going to attempt (this could get ugly)!

Did you know that you can personalize Kleenex boxes?

I think that's what we are going to do. Just order a few and put them by the door so they can grab them on the way in. We can always take them to the reception location for the bathrooms after, too.
