It’s the sweet, little things that will go a long way and make a big impact on your wedding day. Like these darling DIY Individual “Happy Tears” Tissue Packets! They are crazy cheap to make, coming it at under $0.20 each, and are just so darn cute. I have four different label downloads for you at the end of the post, which will make it easy to recreate these to match your unique event. Display in a cute basket or jar at your ceremony, clip onto your program or maybe even place one on each chair. Give your guests the gift of being prepared for the happy tears to flow!


  • 4″ x 6″ Treat Bags
  • Box of Tissues
  • 8.5″ x 11″ White Cardstock
  • Glue Dots and Tape
  • Scissors
  • Our free printable tags at the end of the post!

Fold Your Tissues

Using a regular old box of tissues, take out each individual tissue and fold it to fit the 4 x 6 treat bag, make sure to wash your hands first! I folded mine in half and then in thirds.

In The Treat Bags

Place your folded tissues inside the treat bags and seal. The treat bags I used didn’t have adhesive on the flaps so I used tape, but I found some on Amazon for you that have an adhesive strip – so yay!

Print + Cut

Print one of my free label designs onto 8.5″ x 11″ white cardstock and then cut around the lines provided. There are 20 labels per sheet. I’m sharing four different designs with you; one with an aqua watercolor background, one with a pale pink watercolor background, one with a marble background and one with a blank background which can be printed on any color of paper.

Affix The Label

Using your favorite adhesive, affix a label to the front of each individual tissue packet! So cute!

Display At Your Ceremony

Find a cute basket to display these in for your ceremony or maybe place one on each chair!
