Make My Monday - Anything But a Card

with the lid on 

This week at Make My Monday  Fliss has chosen 'Anything but a Card'. I like to try making different kinds of things, some with more success than others. (I won't be blogging the cake that was so disastrous it didn't make it to the school summer fair on Saturday!)

I made some lip gloss, using a kit from Plush Folly. The little plastic pot came with the kit but I thought I'd find a way of dressing it up to give as a gift. 

I measured the neck of the pot, found a flower svg cutting file and made a circle (in Silhouette Studio)  in the middle to fit the pot.  Then I made an internal offset and cut the shapes out. 

I hope you'll share what you've made with us at Make My Monday.

Seeing the first photo I thought it was a tea candle holder. But it's lipgloss! Fun little gift idea!

Love this! I've always been more of a crafter than a cardmaker, so this really appeals to me. I've never tried this before. It's adorable! Thank you for sharing your project with us this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. And thanks for the inspiration, too! ~Michelle
