Printable Striped Lip Balm Labels & Candle Flames (for personal use only)
• Your favorite lip balm
• Double-sided tape or adhesive roller
• Scissors
• Paper


1. Print out the free printable template.

2. Cut out striped rectangles with a scissors and trim to the size of your lip balm tube.

3. Use double stick tape or an adhesive roller to cover backside of each rectangle with adhesive. I find scrapbook adhesive rollers work great for this.

4. Wrap each label around the tube and trim off any excess paper.

5. Cut out the yellow “candle flames” and attach to the tops of each tube.

6. You’re done! Go and pass these around the party!
