Recently I went to a meeting with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. I participated in a 3D swap. One of the swaps that I got was this cute lip balm holder using the Snow Place stamp set and the Snow Friends Framelits Dies. Did you know that you can purchase these as a bundle for 15% off? Thank you Amy Pennell for your swap. I love it!
You can see that I made a lot of them for an upcoming craft fair.
The box is made using the new Whisper White Thick Cardstock. Cut your cardstock 3 1/8 X 2 3/4. Score on the 2 3/4 side at 5/8, 1 1/4, 1 7/8, and 2 1/2 using your Simply Scored. Turn your paper and score at 5/8 along one end. Using your bone folder crease all of your folds. Cut up from the bottom cut to your fold line and miter the edges. You can cut away the smallest section on the bottom. Here's a sample of what your paper should look like.
Use the Tear & Tape Adhesive on the thin side and on the bottom tabs and close your box.
To decorate your box you will need to stamp two of the larger snowmen and two hats from Whisper White cardstock using the new Archival Basic Black stampin' pad. You can decorate your snowmen any way you wish. I stamped on a bow tie using Real Red ink and I stamped buttons in black. On the top part of the snowman, I used a mask so that I only stamped two of the buttons. Don't forget to color in the carrot nose. I used the Tangelo Twist marker from the 2012016 In Colors.
I cut a lot at one time to make multiples using my Big Shot!
Adhere your pieces to each side of your box using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Don't forget to put your hat on each snowman. Now it's ready for you to slide in your lip balm.
What a great little Secret Santa gift or stocking stuffer!
