I bought this set of 6 small lip balms from B&M they were £2.49, what a bargain! I immediately thought these would make really good table top presents at Christmas so I bought them. The colours also match Stampin Up colours - except I don'y have any yellow - oh well I am sure I will acquire some at some point (not really into yellow at all!)
I made 5 boxes using Emerald Envy, Very Vanilla and Gold, Soft Sky Foil Frenzy, Flirty Flamingo and finally Berry Burst (I did 2 versions of this)
I heat embossed 3 of the lids and decorated them in different ways. I am really pleased how they have turned out and am sure they will be a hit at my Sibling Christmas Get Together. (They don't read this so the surprise will not be spoiled!)
The box lid:
2 3/4 x 2 3/4 score @ 5/8 on all 4 sides
The box base:
3 3/4 x 3 3/4 score @ 1 3/16 on all 4 sides
My score board goes up in 1/8th so I used my Stampin Trimmer to score these lines.
All score lines were folded and burnished and snipped and notched as per the picture (see video tutorial on YouTube)
|The lid was sniped on to opposite sides but the base was rotated to even out the bulk of the cardstock.|
The box measures 1 1/4 tall and 1 14/16 square.
Ready for the close ups!!??
