Valentine Penguin Gift

Over Christmas I saw lots of gifts created with the idea of inserting an EOS lip balm.  With the holiday season I never had the opportunity to create one myself.  Now that things have settled down after the holidays I have been spending some more time in my craft room.
I think these make the most adorable gifts.  The EOS lip balm just opens up and is inserted into the hole and then closed on the back side.  I have seen these made with Snowmen, Santa and Reindeer noses.  For Valentines, there are some fun ideas with cupids, bears and flowers.  The possibilities are endless and they are super easy to make.
I cut the penguin at 5.5 inches so it is a pretty big size.  The hole for the EOS lip balm needs to be cut at 1.43 inches for it to fit properly.  I put my penguin in a large clear bag and tied some Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine to a scalloped tag with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Just Sayin stamp set.
