Cherry Lip Gloss-P.S. I Love You


****UPDATE: Here is the link to the recipe for Lip Gloss: Homemade Lip Gloss ****

A pile of puckery shine! I made some home made Cherry Lip Gloss (learned from Pinterest posts), put it into these sweet containers with attached snap lids and then decorated a label for the tops with the "P. S. I Love You" stamp set (heart rings). I spelled out "Cherry" with the "Calendar Alphabet & Numbers" stamp set. I punched the Whisper White 1" circles, then punched out 1-1/4" circles in Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride to frame the labels.


For the bottom of the containers, I used another stamp from "P. S. I Love You" to make a sticky label out of regular Avery labels. I stamped the images close to the bottom edge of the labels (3 images per label).


When I lined up the 1" Circle punch, I let it punch slightly below the line of the label. This way, when you punch it, you have a tab to pull the self-adhesive label off easily.


You can see the flat bottom of the label here. It doesn't really matter, as it is on the bottom of the container.


I took each container and placed it into a Stampin' Up! 3 x 5" Cellophane Bag and tied it with Victoria or Chantilly Crochet Trim. I threaded the Tiny Tags sentiment onto the tie with Whisper White Baker's Twine.
