Be kind – don’t do what I did last Mother’s Day and totally underestimate the value of a gorgeous gift by running to a crowded store last minute for chocolate truffles and an ordinary pre-made card. To show your mom how much you care, call on your craftiness and create something different exquisite for her this year with this luxurious lip balm idea!
What you’ll need:
What to make:
Our Shoppe Manager Vanessa first chose a natural beeswax and oil combination for the balm in this project, but there are plenty of recipe variations that you can find online if you’re interested in a particular scent or texture.
To package the balm, Vanessa used some tiny tins and added a bit of chic appeal by embellishing with strips of floral fabric tape. She tied it all together with a magenta ribbon and voila! - a perfectly packaged lip luster was born.
Perfect to prime her lips for a big ol’ kiss on the cheek to show you her thanks, this easy DIY will definitely not disappoint mom. You’ll be brimming from ear to ear knowing how you made her day unique and special with such a thoughtful gift.
