DIY Lip Balm Holders

Hello friends,

It's Christmas eve - how exciting!  I don't know about you, but this time of year I love everything peppermint ... candy canes, ice cream, cocoa and even lip balm.  A while back I made some homemade Peppermint Lip Balm as gifts and thought I would share my project with you.



Packaging your homemade lip balm is so fun and easy to do!  Sometimes the holiday inspiration you need can be found right in your own backyard.  I love to use natural elements like pinecones and Baker's twine to create beautiful gifts.

You Will Need
  • Kraft paper or cardstock
  • Hole punch
  • Baker's twine or thread
  • Small pinecones and/or sprigs
  • Hot glue gun
  • Stamps, ink or rub-on stickers
  • Pen or marker
To Make
  • Cut Kraft paper 3"W x 4" H.
  • Write the name of your lip balm at the top (if you prefer you can computer generate the name before cutting your paper).
  • Punch two holes approx. 1" apart in the center of the card.
  • Thread Baker's twine from back to front and tie a bow.
  • Use hot glue to piece together a pinecone and sprig.
  • Arrange the cluster on card and use hot glue to secure everything in place.
  • Add stamped images or rub-ons to embellish.

Just like my previous post, these lip balms also make great stocking stuffers and can be made in so many different flavors.

Wishing you a magical Christmas eve and a Merry Christmas!
