Pucker Up, Buttercup! MFT Hits & Highlights

Pucker up, buttercup — you'll love today's inspiration so much you'll want to give our designers a BIG KISS. Our selection of lip balm products are perfect for customizing fun little treats for co-workers, favors, and stocking stuffers. With the holidays knocking at the door, now is a great opportunity to stock up on last-minute gifts anyone on your list can appreciate that are S.W.A.K from one of their favorite people: you.

Trick or Treating this year is going to take some ingenuity and I have one idea for you. Some little people on your list will love receiving these sweet treats--that keep on giving. Make these adorable lip balm favors using bought or home made lip balm and your recipient will not feel tricked! I make my own and I've shared the recipe and some printable labels below. It's a .pdf file so if you have trouble getting it to download, just leave a comment with your email and I'll send it to you.

For these cuties I used Boo Crew Stamp Set, Boo Crew, Tall Tag Duo, Lip Balm Window & Frame, and Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics. Patterned paper is from Creepy Confections Paper Pad and I used Orange Zest, Black Licorice, and Limelight card stocks.

On the back I added Essential Sentiment Zip Strips Die-namics stamped with Interactive Labels Stamp Set for easy opening.

Here's the .pdf file for your lip balm making convenience :) This is my all-time favorite lip balm and I need to get a batch done soon--I use it daily.

And there you have it from me! I hope I've given you an idea of some easy little favors or treats and you can start making them now for Christmas stocking stuffers!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

  1. How cool! Thanks for sharing your recipe!! I usually buy lip balm and put my own labels on (by the way, thanks for the label template) but making my own would be a really fun idea too. I always love your posts because they are so helpful - this one is even more helpful with a "bonus" how-to.

  2. This is adorable! My granddaughter loves her lip balm! I'm going to make this for her for Halloween. Thanks for the inspiration!! I love your creations!!

  3. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Did you wrap your tubes in decorative paper?

  4. I found my way here looking for ideas and trying to determine some good sources of lip balm. I love the ingredients in your recipe. Any suggestions on best places to buy them?


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
