It's a Whole Lot of Lovely Lipstick/Lip Balm Box - Dinky and Cute !

It's been a pig of a week !   So many things have gone wrong, the pipes in my airing cupboard developed a leak.  Catastrophe !   Soggy wet towels and bed linen have all had to be re-laundered.  If my daughter hadn't gone to get a fresh towel we could have had a total disaster if boiling hot water had made it through to the plaster board floor beneath.   So many setbacks have mean't a delay in getting the new brochure to some my valued customers in time for today, but I have posted them first class today so hopefully they will be arriving tomorrow.   I prepared in two batches, thinking the second batch would have been dispatched by Wednesday.

Add to that this morning's little disaster !!

I uploaded a video for this project below to Youtube and published it - only to find that technology had defeated me (not the first time !) My edited movie was not there.  Absolutely no idea what happened - my lovely blue opening titles were replaced with a black one and the movie was completely out of sequence.

So it was back to the drawing board and "Take Two" !   I have uploaded again and this time no problems.  I think there were You Tube gremlins at play.  So apologies to those of you who may viewed in a state of complete confusion xx

Everybody loves pretty gift packaging whether they are giving or receiving it.

I wanted to create a pretty little package to hold either a lipstick or a stick of lip balm and everybody knows that small is beautiful don't they ?

So, this is my cute and ditsy little Lipstick Box with a Wrapper Sleeve which has been decorated in a really delicate and pretty piece of Designer Series Paper from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP pack.

Whole Lot of Lovely DSP,  Duet Banner Punch, Badges and Banners Stamp Set Stampin' Up!,

The Badges and Banners stamp set has a really sweet little banner stamp which co-ordinates perfectly with the Duet Banner Punch and was ideal for this project.

I added some Finely Woven Soft Sky ribbon to finish the project as the colour blended perfectly with the floral design of the paper.

Its a really nice, quick and simple little project.   I think it would be a perfect little pillow gift at conventions, but also a great little item if you sell at Craft Fayres.

Hope you like it - and are inspired to have a go at making one.  This video tutorial gives you step by step instructions.

I have so many idea buzzing around my head at the moment.

Who is up for a Christmas Countdown of gorgeous gift boxes and cards ?

I am off to my craft room to start planning this weekend and I hope you will be coming back over the coming weeks to see what I have managed to come up with.

Thanks for visiting today and for being patient - in light of my faux pas.

Bye for now and see you later !
