On Monday, I shared with you a couple projects for an up coming craft fair. If you missed it, you an see it here. I have another craft fair item today.
I used the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle, the stamp set and the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to make this holder. My lip balm came from the Dollar Tree. Since I am making a lot of these, I ordered a case from Dollar Tree. They do offer the ones that have 3 sticks to a pack. You can pick it up at a store near you and there is no shipping.
First you need to make a box for the balm. I cut a piece of Early Espresso 3 1/8 x 2 3/4. On the 2 3/4 end, score at 5/8, 1 1/4, 1 7/8, and 2 1/2. turn and score at 5/8. Fold all of your score lines. I'm going to show a picture of how you need to cut your paper. The picture shows white paper and is not very good, but I think you can get the idea.
Use Tear & Tape along the small side and a little on the bottom of the box.
For the gingerbread man, stamp the man from Cookie Cutter Christmas in Early Espresso ink onto Thick Whisper White card stock. I do suggest using the thicker card stock. Make sure that your pad is well inked so that you get a good image. You'll need two of these for each project. I used the Jolly Friends bundle, stamp set and Jolly Hat Builder Punch, to make the hat. Punch the basic hat from Cherry Cobber card stock. I used my scrap paper from the gingerbread men to punch the hat brim and the circles. The circles came from the Cookie Cutter Builder punch. The hat is set facing in opposite directions so that they point the same way when adhered to the box. Assemble the men and then glue them on the box. Don't forget the little cobbler heart. It's from the Cookie Cutter Builder punch.
I think they are really cute.
Now, last year, I made lip balm holders using the Snow Place stamp set and Snow friends Framelits. They were a big hit! If you want to see this post you can see it here.
I hope you enjoyed the post today. If you make some, send me a picture. I would like to see your creations!
