This year, give the Valentine’s Day gift that will keep everyone smiling. I’m talking about smiles with nice, smooth, beautiful lips! I made some free printable and customizable Valentine lip balm wrappers for you. These lip balm wrappers are so unique, super simple, quick and fun to make. This is one gift that is sure to please everyone, especially sugar conscious mom’s. Lip balm is also a fabulous gift for anyone who suffers from food allergies.
It seems as though on Valentine’s Day, my kids always get a ton of candy. It’s gone in a few hours. And what do they have to show for it? Crazy, hyper behavior! I have to laugh a little, because the teachers have amazing parties at the end of the school day where the kids fill up on sugar. Then, they pat my kids on the head and send them home where I get to witness the effects. Let me tell you, lots of small children strung out on sugar contained in a small space is like soda exploding after being shaken up. Fun, but crazy! However, some days I’d rather pass! I know I would appreciate my child receiving a non-food Valentine like these adorable lip balms. I’m sure their teachers would love one for themselves also.
Let’s get down to business. Here’s what you’ll need to make your custom lip balm wrappers:
- Lip Balm
- Sticker Paper (see notes below)
- Free Printable Valentine Lip Balm file, just click here: (Microsoft Word file) or (PDF) When you click on the type of file you want, it will automatically start to download. Below is a preview of what the files look like.
What I found works best is printing the labels out onto sticker paper or printable vinyl paper. Avery, Silhouette and other brands make awesome sticker paper. I wanted something a little different. Inkpress has a great product, it’s adhesive printable vinyl. One of the great features is that you can get the image wet after it’s printed, and it does not affect the image. It stays put, no color bleed here! I have to say, I’m in love with Papilio’s white waterproof vinyl. It’s similar to Inkpress vinyl, but a little thinner. I’ve tried several of their papers in the past and just love them. I love that I can use my printer to print onto vinyl and then stick the vinyl directly to my project. In the past when I made & sold bottle cap necklaces, Papilio was my brand of choice.
I also noticed that you can purchase bulk unlabeled lip balm online. I looked on Amazon and saw that they sold 50/$14 and you get to pick your flavor. Now that’s a sweet deal!
*Although I’ve mentioned several great brands and products in this post, I used all products that I purchased myself. Some of the items are affiliate links. You can rest assured that I only share information on products I love.
Customize your labels. Click the name(s) that you want to change and edit it. Then repeat for any other label you will use. The red arrows show the areas of text that you can edit.
Before printing onto sticker paper, you may want to print once on regular copy paper just to make sure everything is aligned where you want it. Print on to your sticker paper.
Now you’re ready to go! Aren’t these custom Valentine lip balm wrappers just a great, unique gift? I think they’re so fun.
