Tissue Pouches for Wedding Guests

Distribute these tissue pouches to your guests before the ceremony for their tears of joy.
Martha Stewart Weddings, 2000

To make a pouch, use a bone folder (guided by a ruler) to crease an 8 1/2-by-11-inch piece of sturdy yet pliable paper widthwise three times: 2 inches from the top, 5 inches from the top, and 1 inch from the bottom. Fold the first flap back, the second up, and the third down to make a cuff. Center a tissue on the sheet; fold back the sides where the tissue ends; weave the flaps into one another to secure. Turn the pouch over, and insert tissues. Decorate as desired: We stamped each pouch with a phrase and tucked in a phlox blossom.

    Can't hurt for outdoor weddings and a possible sneeze either

    I saw this on the MS website almost 11 years ago and decided to make these for my guests - they were a hit. I printed the sentiment on the paper before folding them.

    I am looking for the stamper that says "for your tears of joy." Where can I purchase that at?
