Quick ‘n Simple Lip Balm Gift Box

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Quick ‘n Simple Lip Balm Gift Box

Morning! Happy Monday everyone!

I’ve got a quick ‘n simple project for you today, and one that uses up those fiddly bits of DSP that end up hanging around when you’ve used it for a bigger box project.

This is one that uses just a 4×4″ (9 x 10cm) piece of paper and it makes the sweetest little gift.

I had a whole load of the paper background stacks in this size left over from a previous project and decided to see what I could use it for. Lip Balm it is then!!

I love these Burts Bees lip balms and they make lovely little gifts.

Sometimes you don’t need to go too big on the decoration if you’re doing a little pick me up for someone who’s poorly or if you’re giving a little extra.

Super sweet, super quick!

    I am totally addicted to your youtube channel! The things you make are beautiful. I’m new to the papercraft world and as yet have not invested in anything, but am seriously thinking about becoming a demonstrator!. Thanks for all you do.

  2. I love the Burt’s Bees too, they make perfect gifts! Love these little bags for them!

  3. Cute bags useful also for lip stick or nail polish. As far as the “spot” papers . . . will you be giving tutorials to use the papers at its best?? . . . asking too much?? Thanks!
