Schools often have tissues on the "supply list" for going back to school. "Back in the day" the schools provided tissues but now it's up to the teacher and I fully believe in helping the teacher provide what the kids need throughout the day. A little bit of fabric can cover the tissue box or travel tissues. A small travel tissue cover can also be used by young ladies to keep certain supplies discreet. Any way you look at it... sewing tissue covers can keep the tissues clean and always at hand for when they are needed.
