Vanilla Cupcake Lip Balm

This sweet treat makes a great gift for teachers.
Kids can make it with Mom, with just a little supervision!

We’re really getting into making spa crafts for Christmas gifts this year. We love cooking up the recipes, then packaging our creations into pretty little gifties! We tried out this recipe for lip balm over the weekend, and it was just too easy not to share. We’re going to make them as stocking stuffers for all of our friends. Sweet!
Vanilla Cupcake Lip Balm
This delightful cupcake lip balm is a sweet treat and a cinch to make!

Lip Balm Ingredients
1 tablespoon beeswax pellets
2 tablespoons vitamin E oil
Vanilla essential oil
Red lipstick 

Materials & Embellishments
½ ounce to 1 ounce clear plastic container
1 flatback Swarovski rhinestone, Light Siam, 4mm
Beacon Adhesives Gem-Tac
1 sheet glossy cardstock 

Pyrex cup
Potato peeler
Microwave oven
Double-stick tape

1. In the Pyrex cup, melt the beeswax pellets into the vitamin E oil by microwaving for about 1 minute on high. Stir with the chopstick. Continue to heat, 10 seconds at a time, until all pellets are melted into the vitamin E oil. 

2. Add 4 to 6 drops of vanilla essential oil and stir. 

3. Use the potato peeler to shave the lipstick, about 3 shavings, into the mixture. Stir with the chopstick until thoroughly melted and blended.

4. Dispense into the plastic container. Let cool.
5. Print the label on glossy cardstock and cut it out. Attach the label to the top of the lid with double-stick tape. Glue the Light Siam rhinestone to the cherry on the label using the toothpick to apply the Gem-Tac.
