I am quite tickled pink over this little project. I've been wanting to come up with a cute little gift idea for someone who was not feeling well. I finally came up with this idea based on all the lip balm holders that were being shown of Splitcoast. The stamp is the same as yesterday's..a sweet sick Magnolia angel. I measured out my Kleenex and vick's vapour inhaler and determined how big a "box" I would need. Then I decorated it.
The card is designed to be the decorative panel on the front. The little pine cone tab holds it closed when you are giving it. When you open it up there are two nice panels to write your get well message.
The red organdy/satin ribbon helps to hold it closed, and swirls and distressing were added to the back and sides.
I still have to run out to get some Vick's Vapour inhaler, but for the meantime I used a chap stick which is approximately the same diameter. The Kleenex is held in with Red Tape. If you look to the sides you will see two black strips. These are magnets which are applied with the red tape. It holds the box closed and lets it keep its shape and not get warped.
Lastly, both ends are open. It's the perfect little something to give to a sick friend. You can substitute a bottle of Tylenol or anything else in a cylinder.
