A project that I love to make for the holidays is a lotion & chapstick holder! Passed years I have made a gift bag holder with a cut out in the front for a window so you can see the content. Even tho I really like the gift bag, I decided to change it up a little this year. The reason being, I am involved in a Holiday Pop-Up shopping event again this year and this will be the 3rd time I will be displaying my projects for sale. So I figured for those repeat attendees that I am so gracious for!!!! I decided I needed a fresh look!
After a few failed attempts on my own, I came across a post on Pinterest and I really liked her project. I adjust it to be just a tad wider so that the lotion and chapsticks would fit without pushing against the paper edges.
Unfortunately, I did not pin the post and I am having trouble locating it at the moment. SO I will keep looking and definitely update when I come across it! I want to make sure I give credit to the creator as well!!
The DSP and stamp image I used is from Stampin' Up's new Let it Snow suite. The stamp set is called Snowman Season and there is also a Snowman Builder punch that coordinates with one of the stamps.
I made 2 of each paper design for a total of 8 holders. I used the cut out from the window as a backing to the greeting and had the reverse side of the paper displayed. For the window opening you could use a window sheet. But I cut a piece of transparency. You can find these at an office supply store. I feel they work just as well and you get more for your money!
I plan to put these into a cellophane bag and finish it off with a little tag that includes the contents for easy shopping.
I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!
