Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve always enjoyed crafting for other people even more than I’ve liked making things for myself. There’s just something so satisfying about seeing someone I care about open a present that I’ve either made from scratch, customized, or at least made all the packaging for, with the knowledge that I put a lot of care into it. My favourite thing to do is make creative packaging for cosmetics because essentially all of my friends love makeup just as much as I do! That’s how I found myself making this super cute lipstick gift card for a friend last week!
Since I’ve always been such a tutorial lover who follows other people’s steps when I like their latest project, I figured it might be nice to return the favour, which is why I decided to document how easy my lipstick gift card was to make. Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos! If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.
For this project, you’ll need:
- Cardboard (pink and polka dot)
- Pink ribbon
- A glue stick
- A pencil
- A ruler
- A tube of lipstick or lip gloss
- A hole punch
Gather your materials!
Apply glue to the back side of your patterned or polka dotted piece of paper and line it up with the corner and edges of your pink paper, sticking it so that the edges or the two are even and the colours look like different sides of the same piece.
