I Don’t Want to Wait ‘Til Christmas – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “I Don’t Want to Wait ’til Christmas.” We are half-way through the year, so there’s no better time to start thinking about the joy of Christmas. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My project for today is a lip balm holder – perfect for craft fairs or stocking stuffers!

Here’s a different view:

How fun is that?!? You can make 2 of these out of 1 piece of cardstock. I originally saw this idea from fellow demonstrator Cindy Mitchell-Clark! I promise to create a video for you, because I’ve “pixie-fied” the measurements slightly to close the lip balm box in a different way, so be sure to check back for the video tutorial!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Sue Jackson at Just Peachy Stamping. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Tonight is my Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live at 8pm EST on my Facebook Page. I’ll demonstrate a fun project for about 30 minutes for you – and we have so much fun! I hope you can join us! CLICK HERE to set a reminder! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day – hope to “see” you tonight!
