Cuz who wants to share Chapstick???

There are a few things that we learned when we moved to the Midwest from California, never wait until the end of a snow storm to shovel your driveway, NEVER leave your house without your umbrella, never assume that the tornado sirens are running a test, and never run out of Chapstick! The winters here are sooooo cold, we sometimes feel like our skin is just flaking away. Chapstick is a must but the kids are always losing theirs or they can't remember who's is who's. So I came up with a simple cute way to keep it all straight.

All I did was remove the original wrapper and Modpodged cute paper on the outside. I did use my Cricut to cut out their initials, but if you did each one in a different paper it would work the same. This way no one uses someone else's, and I find my girls are more likely to keep track of it since it's cute. I even have one for myself that says MOM! What a great gift these would be for a child or even party favors at your next birthday bash.

I am totally stealing this idea for our trip to Texas. 24 hours of drive-time plus an airconditioned cab = dry skin and chapped lips. I had planned to pack chapstick for the boys in their travel bags... now I think I gussey the chapstick up first.

Thanks for the idea!!!

Steal away! Sounds like good times driving for 24 hours with boys... NOT! Actually any kids is bad. Bring DVD's and books on CD!
