Hand Sanitizer Box

 I love making these for any occassion and they are so simple to make. These hold one of the small Pocket hand sanitizers from bath and body works.
Here is the side and back view, I seal my completely closed that is why I have the window in the back to display the scent for them.
These are the fall boxes that I made.
So now on to the question of how can you make them....
Here is the pattern:
Cut your cardstock 1 3/4 x 11
You will then score it at 3/8, 1 1/4, 3 3/4, 4 3/4, 7 3/4 and 8 3/4
You will need your oval punch and your 3/4 circle punch
You DSP will be cut Cover: 1 5/8 x 2 1/8, Inside cover: 1 5/8 x 2 3/8, Back: 1 5/8 x 2 7/8
You will use your circle punch to punch a hole in the center of your first 1 inch space, this will allow for the lid of the soap to fit through.

Chapstick Cards

Every year I have made these for my craft fairs and they have always been one of my best sellers. I am getting ready for a new round of shows and I am diligently working on products. I found a cute idea to make them alittle differently thanks to the new framelits for the big shot!
 They are so easy to make. Using the largest framelit labels cut your outer piece you will score at 2 and 2 3/4. You will then use your next size down for your dsp, once it is cut fold it in half and cut off 5/8 of an inch from your fold, this will give you two identical pieces.
I stamped my insides
For your Chapstick holder cut 1 3/4 by 2 5/8 on the long side you will then score at 3/8, 1, 1 5/8, and 2 1/4. You will attach your 3/8 sides up against your folds.
I love how these turned out! What cute gifts!
