For the crybabies

I like my DIY projects the same way I like my women: easy. Did that make any sense? No, but it made me giggle.

"Tears of Joy" tissue packets are not the most original DIY project, but definitely one of the easiest. Like, stupid easy. I first saw this project on Miss Mojito's (aka Laura) blog. Her inspiration was from this post over on Bee's blog. After reading both posts I thought, "Pshh even I can do that." So I did!

I followed Bee's directions exactly, but made my own labels on Vistaprint.

Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, go check out Bee's post or Miss Mojito's post for full directions. Here is how mine turned out!

Cute, right? Nothing revolutionary, but that's not really my style. I still have to find something to hold them, but I'm sure I can scrounge something up.

Were any (or all) of your DIY projects stupid easy or do you like more of a challenge?


  1. I feel like a horrible bride...I know I have time, but I haven't done like any DIY projects!

  2. I just got the supplies to make these! Yours turned out so cute!

  3. We’re making similar packets, but are attaching business cards with our photo instead of the “Tears of Joy” stickers. Fun and easy project!

  4. I love them! I did the same thing and had my sister create the labels for me. But I didn't add ribbon on mine. Now after seeing all of yours, I am wishing I had :) I even have leftover ribbon I could have used...dang it! Oh well...what's done is done. Yours look fab!

  5. Easy and cute, up my alley! I love this idea.

  6. Your tissue packets came out looking so cute!! I love them. Thanks for linking me! :)
