Hello Creative Friends,
Sharing today an easy craft for favors for your ladies meetings. I love this one because it doesn’t require a lot of paper-crafting tools that you may not have. These are little purses that are perfect to hold lip balms. They are made from a template from Milkwood Designs. Be sure to use the template link that says “Adobe Acrobat” on their site so that you get the full size one.
Important Step: When you print it out, print it at 75% of actual size in order to get the cute little size like I’ve done in the photo. If you don’t know how to do that — when your print screen comes up, choose the “custom” option and set the scaling size to 75%.
For these you just cut out the template, score the lines, fold up and embellish. For my flower embellishment, I used a 1 and 1/4 inch round punch, just cut little slits around the edges, and attached a stick on gem. I placed in Nivea lip balms with glue dots. To close them I also just used a glue dot.
These don’t take a lot of card-stock so I used some card-stock and heavier weight designer paper I had in my leftovers. Finished size is approximately 2 and 3/4 inches tall and 3 and 3/4 inches at the widest part (bottom) in width.
