Happy Belated Valentine's Day! I had hoped to post this project yesterday, but had problems with my picture.
I made this lip balm holder as Valentine's gifts for my Mom's friends. My Mom lives in Assisted Living and loves giving small gifts to her friends on holidays. I found the pattern on the internet. I'm sorry, I don't remember where.
I used Real Red cardstock as the base. The paper measures 9 1/2" X 3". I scored the paper at 1/2", 1 1/4", 2", 2 3/4", 5 3/4" and 6 1/2. I then punched a 3/4" circle on the second strip measuring 3/4" wide. I used Sticky Strip on the 1/2" scored section to form the box. Next I cut a 2 3/4" square of Pretty in Pink cardstock and attached to the front of the box. I then cut a 2 1/4" square of Red Glitter Paper. I stamped the red heart from the P.S. I Love You set in the Occasions Mini Catalog on Whisper White cardstock. I punched it out with the Full Heart Punch from the Big Idea Book & Catalog. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to elevate the heart. The center heart is punched in Red Glitter Paper using the smallest heart on the Heart to Heart Punch.
The inside of the box has a 2 3/4" Pretty in Pink square, a Real Red heart and the middle heart from the Heart to Heart Punch in Red Glitter Paper. The lip balm is secured with Mini Glue Dots. I closed the box with 5/8" Organza White Ribbon.
