Joy's Life Tins - Lip Balm!

Happy Thursday!

I have a fun project to share with you today.

A lovely little gift, just right for a "Girl's Night Out" gift bag!

I used Joy's Life All Around Sentiment stamp set and 
Carta Bella papers, My Mind's Eye lace, 
I used my Cricut to cut out the circles & Nestie for the scallop.

Aren't these little tins so sweet, just the right size for sharing some home-made lip balm with friends!!  You can purchase them @ Joy's Life! A 2 inch circle fits perfectly atop the lid!! Check out what the rest of the design team has been creating all week with her various tins!

Here's the easy peasy recipe...

  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. almond oil
  • ½ tsp. grated beeswax (or use pearls)
Combine all the ingredients in a microwave-safe container and pop it in the microwave. In 1-2 minutes, the beeswax should melt, and that’s it! You just made your own lip balm.  Add a bit of lipstick for color, optional.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I don't think anything could be cuter! My current lipbalm is in a tiny cupcake shaped container and I love it, wonder what I will do when it's over.

Cute idea. This may be a stupid question but where do I find beeswax pearls? What about almond oil?
