I love giving little gifts that don’t cost much but still add a personal touch. This lip balm holder card is the perfect way to send a little something, a thoughtful note or a quick thank you.
I’m a little lip balm obsessed. I think I may have tried every major brand out there. You can always find a longer-lasting, more moisturizing, more eco-friendly lip balm.
My latest favorite actually just got discontinued so even more reason to continue the search. Its the lip and face balm by Babyganics. I wrote this long email to the company begging them to bring it back but I guess they had other priorities.
My second favorite one is kind of fancy, its made by Caudalie. This Caudalie Lip Conditioner is about 10x the price of every other lip balm but it’s so worth it. I find most lip balms moisturize but sometimes make your lips have a lot of build-up so then I have to exfoliate my lips more which is annoying. But this Caudalie Lip Conditioner moisturizes without leaving me having to exfoliate.
My favorite lip balm with SPF is this one I found in the Swedish pharmacy on one of my recent visits. Its this This made by ACO and I can’t find it anywhere on the internet.
Anyways, on to the actual project…

How to assemble the card
Step 1: Cut out the pieces from the template
Step 2: Score the folding lines
I’ve included the scoring lines for cards in my templates but I personally don’t like to use my Cricut to do the scoring because it never aligns properly.
I instead do this by hand with a ruler and a scaping tool. If you don’t have a scaper, just use a credit card.
Step 3: Adhere the layers together
I just like add some adhesive along the other edge and try not to over do it.
