So.....I go with it.
That's right, these are not for my kiddos or their friends....they are for my friends.
All you need is:
large paint swatches
your favorite chapstick (one of mine is YES to Carrots)
fine tip sharpie
You simply fold the swatch in half length wise (with the color on the inside of the fold). Then cut 2 slits (while folded).
Unfold, apply your washi tape, write your cheesy message, and slide the chapstick in!
I have Berry flavored and Mint flavored chapstick so my messages say:
"Our friendship was MINT to be"
"You and I were MINT to be friends"
"so BERRY glad we're friends"
I know, but I couldn't resist. :)
