When life gives you limes…
Make hand cream!
You might be forgiven for thinking I’ve gone a bit fruity over here…
You’d be right though.
Literally and figuratively.
It’s Christmas, everyone gets a bit fruity then don’t they?
I’ve teamed up with talented Bele from Blah Blah Magazine
to make a Free Lime Gift Tag Printable…
for one of her Homemade Hand Creams made with Lime and other gorgeous things like Shea Butter and Macadamia Oil.
Why not make these as a special gift for someone this Christmas?
Here’s how to make the Lime Gift Tags.
Free Lime Gift Tag Printable
What you need:
Double sided tape + regular tape
How to make the tag:
Download the Free Lime Gift TagPrintable (print onto A4 card 200gsm for best results at 100%), but A4 copy paper will also be fine.
Cut out 2 lime discs.
(One plain and one with the “To” and “From” option.)
Glue together with adhesive glue.
Then trim any excess with scissors and add your label details.
Use a hole punch to make one hole, then thread through your string and tie around the neck of your bottle or container.
To make the label:
Cut two strips, choose the saying you like best.
Then using double sided tape (or adhesive spray) glue the ends together so the lime illustration forms a tab.
Then fasten around your jar (Trim any excess off) with some regular tape, overlapping onto the bottle to keep in position.
And you’re done.
I remember saying to my dad years ago to make sure you put cream on your hands to keep you looking young.
He still does today…
It’s a great gift to make for someone special made with natural ingredients.
These Lime Tags would also be great for a summer party…
Use the Lime discs for cupcake toppers, (print on adhesive gloss stickers and attach over a toothpick to make cupcake toppers.)
Use the plain lime discs, hole punch, then thread around mini milk bottles and fill with a refreshing lime drink. (add a name so people know who owns each drink)
Use the discs to stick on party favour bags and fill with lollies.
The possibilities are endless.
