Today I’m sharing a lip balm holder I made with Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper. I also used the Copper Trim and Acorn Trinkets from the Gilded Autumn Suite Collection. This holder fits any standard size lip balm, like Burt’s Bees, ChapStick, etc. The finished dimensions of the closed holder are 3/4″ x 3/4″ x 2-3/4″. I gave you a sneak peek of it a few days ago, in the post about the coordinating card. You can see that post here.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″, and scored and cut according to the diagram
  • cut solid lines, score dotted lines, and remove green areas
  • Lip Balm Holder #stampcandy #stampinupclick the diagram to view larger

Assembled the holder:

  • burnished all the folds in the DSP with a Bone Folder
  • long 1/4″ tab on the side glued onto the inside of the the opposite side to form the box
  • bottom flaps folded in and glued together to form the bottom
  • lip balm dropped into the box
  • side flaps closed and lid closed and tab tucked in
  • 2″ length of Tear & Tape folded in half, so it’s only 1/8″ wide x 2″ long, then applied onto the back and two sides of the box
  • NOTE: I used the pointy end of my Take Your Pick tool to open the Tear & Tape back up after folding it over onto itself.
  • center of ribbon adhered on the back of the box and wrapped around the two sides, covering the Tear & Tape
  • acorn trinket threaded onto the ribbon, then the ribbon tied in a bow
  • glue dot applied behind the bow, using a Take Your Pick tool, to hold it in place
