We’re definitely not the first (and won’t be the last) to show you these adorable craft ideas using the EOS lip balms! While the concept is fairly simple, finding what you want to do with them can be overwhelming! So today, we are bringing you a round-up of our favorite EOS lip balm printables!
So I know you are a little confused on why I’m talking about EOS lip balms when you didn’t actually receive an EOS brand. The good news is that you can now make these cute little crafts for an affordable price — we scored these knock off lip balms for around $1.00 each instead of the hefty $3.00-4.00 price tag of the EOS brand. I can’t claim that the lip balm is the same quality, but I’ve been using it for about three weeks and I’m still alive, so that counts for something, right??
I purchased the ones for the box from Quality Logo Products. But because I’m always honest with you guys, I will say that the experience wasn’t ideal. The actual products arrived intact and are as expected, but the customer service was lacking (and I was assigned a “sales rep” for one-on-one service). Plus the minimums are a little high, so I would look elsewhere before ordering with them again.
You also received a pack of cardstock in your box, so go ahead and add that to your printer before you start printing! We use 110 lb. cardstock from Amazon, but it can also be found at most office supply stores.
So the basics of creating a printable EOS lip balm card (or display) is to set up a file, print it on the computer, and then use the print-and-cut feature to cut the hold in the middle. If you have a punch, you can also use that instead of your Silhouette. But because we love our Silhouette, that is what we are going to do.
Let’s look at a few inspiration items first. Each photo is linked back to its original source — and all have a free download available!!
- This is ours from a while ago, so of course the post has a free cut file for Silhouette users.
- This cutie is from Skip to my Lou, a lovely blog with some great freebies. It’s not set up as a cut file, but you could quickly remedy that with a punch or by importing it into your software.
- Here is a cute spring themed printable that was featured on Tatertots and Jello — on of my fav blogs. You can check out the full post here.
- Here is another cute “anytime” kind of printable from By Dawn Nicole (another fav!). Click on through to get a free cut file for Silhouette!
- Last but not least, here is a pretty gender-neutral, all-purpose, anytime kind of idea, and super cute in its simplicity! You can check out the full post from Paging Super Mom (love the name!).
If those aren’t doing it for you, the Silhouette Design Store actually has quite a selection to choose from, too!
