Have you seen the first issue of MAKE IT YOURSELF magazine? Oh, Sweet Judy! It is amazing!
I picked one up last week and browsed through it, immediately landing on the adorable Ninja Lip Balm Holder designed by Monica Solorio-Snow of The Happy Zombie fame.
I had been thinking of a handmade gift I could make for my friend Maude who has five kids, 4 boys and a baby girl. This was perfect. But not for chapstick...for an ornament!
I scanned the free pattern found in the magazine and re-sized it down to make it the correct size. I added a belt emblem to add an embroidered initial to each ornament as well. I made five of these one evening while watching a movie and they turned out SO CUTE!
Below are the instructions and the altered pattern I designed. Enjoy!
