Cupcake Lip Balm!!!

I found this adorable cupcake lip balm in the dollar bins at Michael's. I thought it was SO cute I just had to buy it. I thought my niece would like this. But I couldn't give it to her in it's original packaging now could I? Oh come on. We ALL know I bought to to revamp it!!! LOL

I used the Stampin' Up! "Cupcake" wheel for the header. First I used the Top Notes die cut and glossy card stock and then I stamped the images on. I used black StazOn and colored in the cupcakes with markers. It's very simple to do. No blending, just coloring directly from the marker.

Then I used a few select punches to do the Happy Birthday layers. The wording was done a while back on my computer. I printed out a whole sheet of them so you can see them a LOT on my blog!!! LOL That sheet of them sure has come in handy!!!

I stapled the baggie to the inside of the folded card stock. I stapled it so the bumpy part of the staple was on the front leaving the backside with just a smooth staple bar. I covered the bumpy parts with the scallop layers. It gives the whole baggie thing a clean look.

And that is it. VERY simple. And yes, it REALLY is for my niece. Her birthday is next month and I know she'll LOVE it!!! She's such a sweetie!!

These would also make fun party favors for those "girly" parties!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

Such a cute lip gloss, when I was in school it was all the rage to have the newest AVON lip gloss pot. This would have been the best ;)

That is adorable! I love how everything you do is so creative. I always enjoy reading your posts. There's this new website called where artists can display and sell their work. I thought it may be of interest to you. Thanks again for a great post!

Your repackaging is much better than the original. Love the lip balm. Bet you could make it out of clay too!
