Make Lip Balm Gift Holders with Teri Anderson
Teri here, and I'm sure excited to contribute a project to Waffle Flower's Twelve Days of Gift Giving event!
I'd like to present to you my lip balm gift holders.
These gift holders take a little bit of time to make, but they are sure to please.
The first thing you'll need to do is find some lip balm in a blister-style package. I am using Chapstick that I found for a $1 at a local box store.
Now, you'll need to make a base for your lip balm wrap.
Cut a 3 1/5" x 9" rectangle.
Set it horizontally on a scoring board. You'll score lines at the 4" and 5" marks.
Fold it up and then flatten the wrap and get ready to decorate it.
Ink up the label from the Holiday Labels - Give Thanks stamp set with a red water-based ink pad. Drop a little water onto the inked up label stamp with a water brush or a wet paint brush.
Stamp the label and let it dry completely.
Stamp the label from from the Holiday Labels - Merry stamp set on top.
Stamp on a few stars too.
Fussy cut the label with your scissors.
Create a second label just like this first one.
Now, you are going to want to make a blue label. Follow the same steps. Just use blue ink. And stamp a sentiment on top with black ink.
Die-cut a couple trees with the Riverside die set and affix them to the blue label.
Adhere the labels, some twine and sequins onto your lip balm packaging like so.
Fold up the package. Place the lip balm inside it. Punch a hole completely through the package.
Bring twine through the holes, holding the packaging and lip balm together. Tie a bow in the front of the package.
Finish the gift off by adding a little glue to the die-cut trees and sprinkling on a little bit of glitter.
When you are finished, you'll get something that looks like this.
If you make a lip balm holder to give as a gift, I'd love to see it! Please be sure to link up your project in the comments so I can come see it!
Thanks again for having me!
Thank you for sharing your super craftiness with us, Teri!
