Chappy Birthday - Lip Balm Holder

Hello and I am back with a splat!! Literally!
 After seeing lots of great idea for the EOS Lip Balm last year and not being able to find any in the UK,  I spotted one in Boots last week.  They aren't cheap for a lip balm but I bought one anyway and it smelled deliciously of strawberries!
 Lettering Delights Love Sick Lip Balm Holders
 Lettering Delights released a great collection before Valentine's Day called 'Love Sick' and there are some cut files which fit the EOS lip balms in the collection. 
You can buy the lip balm holder svgs separately and I will provide links to both at the bottom of the page but the collection is reduced at present from $28 to $11.20. 
I  had the idea of creating a gift box rather than a card, so once I had cut out the 'splat' monster using my Silhouette Cameo, I traced the circle of his (or her?) mouth onto a gift box I made by hand and then used a circle die to cut it out.  His 'nose' fits perfectly inside the box and there is also room to fit more goodies inside if you wanted to.
I printed out the words 'Chappy Birthday' using a font by LD called Typeset and attached them with a bit of adhesive and then wrapped baker's twine around the top to hold it all together.

Have a great weekend.

  1. What a great idea for a gift love this. Can't get them here in Greece and I was so disappointed I couldn't get hold of them. Love the sentiment too.



I love to get comments on my blog so thank you for taking the time to say hello! Wendy x
