Chapstick Holder Cards

Hi Everybody.

Today I have a little tutorial to share with you.  I in no way designed this tutorial, but I did revise one I found a little to get the size I was looking for.  The original tutorials are from Sarah's Ink Spot Blog and Yvette's Paper Garden, be sure to check out their blogs.

This is the final product, and I think it makes a great gift or stocking stuffer.


Step 1

Cut 2 different colors of cardstock 5 3/4" x 2 3/4" ( I used Garden Green and Bravo Burgungdy) and score them both at 2 1/2" x 3 1/4". I then ran the Bravo Burgundy through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder.


Step 2


Fold your Garden Green Cardstock on the second score line from the left.  Put a pencil mark along that score line at 1 1/8" and 1 5/8" from the top.
Step 3

Using your Snips start at the 1 1/8" pencil mark & cut from the second score line to the first one (keep cardstock folded on the second line while cutting) and then repeat starting at the 1 5/8" pencil mark.
Once you make the cuts this is what your card should look like from the outside.


And inside.


And that center piece is where you would place your chapstick (Burt's Bees is my favourite chap stick).


Step 4
Put your adhesive on the outside of your Garden Green CS, be sure not to put any on the center part that folds in and holds your chapstick.




Step 5

When you attach the Garden Green to the Bravo Burgundy I found it was easiest if I started with the center panel first.
Step 6

Because the Bravo Burgundy was embossed it is going to be slightly smaller then your Garden Green, I just cut that excess off. 





When you're all done just punch your hole with a 1/8" hole punch and use ribbon to tie the card shut.
