Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - EOS Balm Flop Open Box Tutorial

Okay so much as I’d like to call this an explosion box for an EOS balm, it doesn’t so much explode as flop, so that’s what I’m gonna call it!

Nothing like honesty after all!

It is a bit cute though isn’t it?

I’m totally in love with the EOS balms since I was first put onto them last year and now can’t stop smothering my lips with them, but also making boxes for them too (you’ll be pleased to know that both of these balms are brand new – no lip soiled products near my creations!)

Have fun making a little flop open box, whether it’s for an EOS balm or not!
