Lip Balm Tote w/ Stampin' Up Quatrefancy DSP

Need a Perfect Little " Just Because " Gift?
Of Course you Do! Or how about favors at your next party!

You know It's starting the get REALLY hot here in N. Calif this week and 
that means dry also,so I thought Lip Balm to the rescue!
And how fun to present it in this EASY TO MAKE little purse.

My lip balm pictured is strawberry and I confess is now empty because I got it at Stampin'Up Convention last year. I hope they have them this year too! So of course I will fill this tote with a full one and surprise one lucky winner at my next stamp club on Sunday.

I have to tell you all that all the bright colors in this Quatrefancy Designer paper seems just perfect for summer cards and projects. FYI, the DSP includes the colors..... Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie, Strawberry Slush, and Whisper White. 

The tote ( instructions to follow ) is made from Daffodil Delight Card Stock and the handles with the Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. Attach your handles with Glue Dots before applying the DSP. The cute little button in front is simple made from whisper white and Strawberry Slush card stock and Circle Punches. Pierce holes in the center through both layers and run Island Indigo Bakers Twine through the holes, then tie a knot on the back. Use dimensionals to pop up the button.

Now for the box......
Start with a 4 3/4" x 4 1/4" piece of DAFFODIL DELIGHT card stock,
I used Marina Mist in this photo from a previous post
pay no attention to the patterned panel #'s when making this Lip Balm Tote

 Score on the 4 3/4" side @ 2" & 2 3/4"
Score on the 4 1/4" side @ 3/4 & 3 1/2"
Cut the score lines @ 3/4" & 3 1/2" but

Fold Flaps inward and adhere with glue to form a rectangle.
Though it does not show it in the picture you will need the use the 
3/16" Corner Punch to round out the edges of the larger rectangle sides.
Fold Up Large side panels and adhere to sides of
small rectangle.

You are now ready to decorate with the Quadrefancy Designer Paper. If you follow the Mosaic Design and try to cut on either side of the design, your strip width is just a little more than 3/4" Cut 1 One strip to go all the way around the bottom and 2 strips 2 3/4" that go over your ribbon handles on each side.

Have fun making dozens of these as they are a great little gift for ALL AGES!
