Playing with the label maker again.

I wanted to make a few tubes of my favorite lip balm to tuck into the swap package along with the Fear of Commitment cowl (it's finished by the way and in the background blocking).

I ordered these cute little transparent lip balm tubes from etsy and in typical Marielle fashion had to gussy them up a bit - the easy way. So after mixing and pouring, instead of whipping out the sharpie and masking tape (my tools of choice), I dusted off the label maker.

Clear plastic label cartridge + my blog's name and I have to say they look very modern, very clean.

This time I cranked out a larger batch. I'm not planning on going into business but these are handy to have to share with friends and tuck into packages I mail out. Also, being my favorite lip balm I usually have one in the living room, each jacket pocket, my purse and even each bathroom. Why, yes, yes I am addicted to lipbalm.

Thank you!

I love all your natural beauty recipes and was wondering if you have any for hair?

Marielle said...

Delma, not too many, sorry. I do the CG method so mostly cheap conditioner and cheap simple CG friendly hair. But I'm glad you asked because it reminded me I wanted to tweak the flax seed gel recipe and one day mess around with a simple conditioner. If I could make those two items I would never have to go through the grief of having discontinued products and having to find a new one.

I'll definitely share the recipe if I turn out something worthwhile.

Thanks! =) I'm looking forward to seeing the flax seed recipe I tried one but wasn't too impressed.
