Lip Balm Directions

Lots of requests for a tutorial...but truly, I don't have the time before Christmas to do it...sorry! I'm getting ready for my husband's holiday party this weekend, then need to finish shopping, wrapping, making gifts. I know a bunch of you are in the same situation, right? Anyway...here are some directions that I used to make the lip balm holder. They really are simple to do.

Lip Balm Holder

Outside Piece 5 3/4" x 3 1/2" Score at 2 1/2" & 3 1/4"
Inside Piece 5 1/2" x 3 1/4" Score at 2 3/8" & 31/8"

Decorate the front as desired. Place 15" of ribbon between top decoration and the front of top piece to hold in place.

Temporarily place the lip balm on the inside piece (between the two score lines) and mark with a pencil the top and bottom. Then use the slit punch, making sure the straight line base is at the pencil marks. (I actually marked my slit punch on the metal so they could tell how far to go in with the punch.) Wrap a piece of decorative paper around lip balm. I put a small piece of double stick tape down the center to help secure the lip balm between the two slits.

Adhere both outside and inside pieces together. Tie to close!
