SU Chalk Talk with an Angled Tag Punch – EOS Lip Balm Holder

Hey there, crafters! It’s time for another Friday Mashup Challenge – # 184.

Lisa is looking for some different takes on a box for gifting given with a thankful heart.




Here’s your Mashup Challenge:

Create a “Box Project.

“Create a project with a “Thanksgiving or Thankful Theme.”

or Mash it Up!

and create a “Thanksgiving- or Thankful-Themed Box.”

My daughter loves the new round EOS lip balms. I thought I would create a little box type holder for one of these popular items. Of course, the color is just perfect to go with last year’s Fresh Prints DSP.

I simply made a little stand out of a 3 1/2 ” square scored in 3/4″ on all four sides with a circle framelit cut out for the lip balm to sit in.

Then I cut two 2″ x 4 1/4″ pieces of DSP and used the Angled Tag Punch to bring the tops together with a sweet little Pool Party cotton ribbon. A touch of Real Red ribbon finished off the Crumb Cake Base. I stamped “For You,” from the Chalk Talk stamp set and added a Crumb Cake border using a Circle Framelit bordered by the 1 3/4″ scallop punch.  I was so pleased how the inside pattern of the DSP was complementary with the outside and not distracting as some double sided papers seem to be. I thought the posies deserved some pearl accompaniment as well:)

*My Mash Up thankful theme will be put to use when this goes to someone as a thank you!

And, this week, Stampin’ Up Only Challenges #108  has a

The Treat’s the Thing” theme,

so I am going to share it with everyone over there!



  1. Wow, Cindy- this is fantastic!! Love the use of the Fresh Prints DSP and the box within the Scalloped Topper Punch sides is perfect- I am sure that your daughter will love it as well! Thanks again for playing along with us at SUO Challenges- hugs and God Bless!

  2. Very cute and perfect for those lip balms! Love it! Thanks for playing along with the SUO Challenge this time!

  3. Such creative gift packaging! I just heard about these little lip balms and they are cute. Love the colors and how you created the nesting box for the lip balm. Thanks for playing along with the SUO Challenges.

  4. Super cute, Cindy. I like the way you used the Real Red as your primary accent color to fully incorporate even the interior DSP. Adorable little gift package! Thanks for playing along at SUO once again this week!

  5. This is awesome Cindy! I have to admit, when I first saw your pic I was trying to figure out what your little treat was…I have never heard of these lip balms. Sounds like something my daughter would like! Anyway, fantastic project!

    1. Hmmm…it should have worked out.

      3.5″ minus .75″ minus .75″ equals 2″ which is the width of the DSP that fit inside the tag topper punch.
