Easy Lip Balm Shadow Box Gift Box

Positivelypapercraft Lip balm shadow box tutorial


Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Blog. I hope you are all well & enjoying my tutorials :-) Today i have the most adorable little shadow box for you! I designed this to hold a Nivea Lip Butter Tin. It fits perfectly & i even made a little box for the shadow box to slip into! Basically this makes a beautiful & inexpensive gift. You can co-ordinate the colours so that your card/paper matches your Lip butter tin. Its so easy to make & also looks very professional.

Lip balm gift box tutorial, Positivelypapercraft,
I made the box blue to match my Lip Butter!

This make fantastic gifts!


With this project you can make it from card Stock or scrapbook paper. I went for paper as i wanted them to be nice & colourful. I decided to make the gift box matching but you could do that in a different pattern if you wish. Anyone would be thrilled to receive this! It would be a perfect Teacher gift & i would think they would do very well at Craft Fairs.

I also thought about cutting out a little window in the gift box so that you can see the Lip Butter inside. You could put some acetate behind the window so that the Lip butter doesn't fall out. When i make another i think i will try it. On the front of the Blue Box i i stamped & heat embossed a sentiment & then added a twine bow.

  2. I'm Not very good at box making these days...arthritic hands.
    Do love the ideas you come up with AND you do videos to match, big thank you.
    Have seen past videos of items to make but can't remember titles. Is there an easy way to find all your box makes please Ann?
    Hope you and family will have a Christmas full of love and laughter.
