Felt Tissue-Box Holder

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2008


A piece of felt in your favorite color makes an ideal cover for a tissue box -- and the material will convey warmth when you need it most. 


  • Cubed tissue box

  • Felt

  • Chalk

  • Ruler

  • Fabric shears

  • Pins

  • Needle and thread


  1. Center a cubed tissue box on a 14-inch felt square; trace with chalk. Set box aside.

  2. Using a ruler, draw an X that extends to each corner of felt. Cut a 2 1/2-inch opening at center. Starting from outer corners, cut along lines of X; stop at corners of traced square.

  3. Cut 4 notches as shown. Place felt on top of box. Fold in edges of short sides; pin to box. Fold triangles' corners around box to overlap on each side; pin.

  4. Make a stitch at bottom point, on 2 opposite sides, to secure all layers. Remove pins.
