My poor blog has been ignored for 3 months!!!! I think it is time to start paying attention to it again 🙂 I have been super busy making craft market items over the past while. I wanted a lip balm holder and came up with this after seeing a few other similar projects which were for small treat sized chocolate bars. I just changed a few things, changed a few dimensions and voila…stinkin’ cute project!
Being my first tutorial ever, I hope I did not make any mistakes! Hope you enjoy creating. Please click on pics to make them bigger.
Cut and score card stock to dimensions shown.
Notch tabs on 2×4 piece as shown. Add adhesive (Tear and Tape or Fast Fuse) and put box together as pictured. This is the nest for your lip balm.
Cut pieces of DSP to dimensions shown. Round top 2 corners of larger piece of DSP and unscored piece of card stock.
Adhere dsp to card stock pieces. Punch hole in center of backing at 1 3/8 inches (I make one of these and use it as a template for the rest so I don’t have to measure every single one). Wrap outer box around the lip balm nest and adhere together snuggly but not too tight as you want the box to slide in and out easily. Apply adhesive to box along side with no dsp then adhere to bottom of backing. Embellish as desired!! Enjoy!
