2012 Primary Theme Chapstick Labels


I have FINALLY gotten the 2012 Primary Theme Chapstick Label finished.  I know it has taken me FOREVER, but I honestly was not able to think of a single idea until two days ago.  Those two days have been busy designing and refining the label so it is just what I had in mind.  I hope you like it too . . .

Download this label that has all of the colors I've designed.

I ONLY use ChapStick brand lip balm for two reasons:  1.  I like it best (it reminds me of my dad -- he ALWAYS has ChapStick in his pocket) and 2.  That is the size of these labels.

I have a tutorial in applying the label here.  A few people have suggested just printing right on label paper.  I am sure that would work, but I have never tried it!  If anyone does, I would love some feedback.  I think it might not last as long because the clear tape is over the whole label on these and it gives it an added protection.  Comment on what you've tried!

**PROMOTION** If you would like to be entered in a DRAWING for a free chapstick, just comment below and I will RANDOMLY draw a winner!  The drawing will end DECEMBER 22, so I can get the winner's prize in the mail in time for 2012!!!

If you would rather buy this than make it, you can send me an e-mail at lorene(at)yourvinylgraphics(dot)com or click on my ETSY shop

Remember . . .

Oh my word, I could kiss you!!! Thank you, thank you for making these and sharing! I just couldn't figure out what to do for our primary for birthdays and this is awesome!!!! Thanks!!

Lorene said...

Thanks for all your comments! When you try to print them, I think it works just to make sure it says "print to fit" or something similar.
I charge $2.00 for a finished chapstick and you can order them at my etsy shop or e-mail me. Printing the labels is free.
THANKS!

I print these on plain paper, cut them out and put clear packing tape over the top. It is durable and I can re-position the label if I don't get it on straight. Thanks for all your kind words :)

Lorene said...

I forgot to mention that you can get chapstick in bulk at Sam's Club--but I found that my local Wal-Mart was just as cheap. Good luck :)

I think your chapstick lables are adorable. I am trying to print them off. I downloaded them and can't find them. If I search for it, it shows me the encrypted code version only. What am I not doing right?

Lorene said...

It is SUPER annoying when the computer doesn't do what you want it to do!!
When you download the file, make sure it is going to a document folder that you can recover later. Sometimes when I download stuff, I don't pay attention to where it is going & then I can't find it again. Something like 'documents' and then a sub-folder if you want it in that.
If it doesn't work, let me know & I'll e-mail it to you directly & we'll see if that helps!
Good Luck!

We are going to use these for Birthday gifts. We have a large Primary of 60 kids. I found lip balm here: http://bulkapothecary.com/ for .28 cents a piece. You can select flavors and everything. Thanks for sharing a fun idea!

Lorene said...

Christie~Thanks for the info. I'll have to check them out!

Kellie said...

Julie said...

These are so cute! But...I must be doing something wrong. When I try to download the label it takes me to Acrobat.com. Help?

Lorene said...

Julie (and anyone else trying to download them) I am so sorry about that. Just send me an e-mail with what you'd like & I'll respond as quick as I can. My e-mail is lorene(at)yourvinylgraphics(dot)com Thanks :)

Can I download a blank one to make my own I'm trying to make some for my sons baptism but in Spanish.

Lorene said...

Unfortunately, I don't have a blank one for you to download--sorry. If you want to send me the spanish words you want, I will design one next week--just e-mail them right to me at lorene(at)yourvinylgraphics(dot)com
