Today’s tutorial comes from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. She has the cutest idea for a fun Valentines’ Day project!
Normally we do tutorials on Tuesdays but we have some blogging issues yesterday so we are sharing it with you today.
1. Cut two (2) 5¾” x 3½” pieces of cardstock. Sand both pieces. One piece will be the cover of your lip balm holder, and the other will be cut to hold the lip balm on the inside.
2- Score both pieces of cardstock lengthwise at 2½” and 3¼. This is shown in the photo as blue lines. I use the gutter of my paper trimmer and an embossing stylus to create the score lines.
3-Set one piece of cardstock aside (the cover) From the other cardstock, make the following cuts. (Make sure the embossing faces outward.
The following cuts begin from the far right score line (photo 6): a- measuring 1 1/4″ from the top of the project, make a slit that is 1 1/2″ long. b-measuring 1 1/4″ from the bottom of the project, make a slit that is 1 1/2″ long.
The following cuts begin at the center of both score lines: c-measuring 3/8″ from the top of the project, make a slit that is 3/4″ long. d-measuring 3/8″ from the bottom of the project, make a slit that is 3/4″ long.
