Lip Balm Holder

Happy Monday! Last week I stumbled across Project Tuesday. They have a weekly challenge, but not for cards. Since I've been trying to make more "not-card" items, I thought I'd jump right in. Last weeks challenge was to make a lip balm holder.


First I thought: I don't really need a lip balm holder made of paper. Then I saw the examples and said "duh! It's a cute gift idea!" I was a little slow last week.

I used the small dots paper from Pink Petticoat, the digi is Beach Duck by Mark Hicks from Squigglefly colored with copics (I used white pen on his teeth since I was having coloring issues!), and the Summertime Cricut cut is from Stretch Your Imagination at 3" plus shadow.

OK, so I don't give out much lip balm, but I was thinking with a little adjustment inside, you could easily fit a roll of Life Savers or something! How cool is that? And a little FYI: the challenge today at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog is Christmas in July! So if you want to get a jump start on your cards, make sure to enter your card in the challenge!
