Repeat Impressions Project of the Week...Lip Balm Holder

Hi there!

Christmas is just around the corner, and we always need a last minute inexpensive, but thoughtful gift for friends, neighbors, Sunday School members, etc.

My Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions is quick, easy, and adorable!

Let's get started - we are making a Lip Balm Holder...

Start with a 4 3/4" x 4 1/4" piece of cardstock.
On the 4 3/4" side, score at 2" and 2 3/4".
On the 4 1/4" side, score at 3/4" and 3 1/2".
Burnish your fold lines with a bone folder.

On the 4 3/4" side, cut in to the fold lines to create 4 tabs, as shown below.
Add 2 sided adhesive tape, embellish front side as desired, and punch out a 'handle'.
For my card front, I've used Repeat Impressions 2107-H 'Noel', and heat
embossed it in silver.

Bring your flaps in together and adhere. Pull your box front and back up, and let the
remaining 'sticky' adhere the tabs and box together.  It will look like this.

Drop in your lip balm, and tie 'handle' closed. (I also colored my poinsettia)

Looking at this from the top down, here's what it should look like.

Give it a try!  If you do, stop by and let us know, so we can come see your beautiful creation!
Thanks for stopping by today!
