We figured out what to give to the Primary children for their birthdays, but what about those great teachers that serve in the Primary? Or what about the Relief Society sisters in your ward or those amazing Young Women? Maybe you just need a cute gift idea for a good friend…today I am sharing a great little printable that is quick and easy, but would make a great Birthday Gift for anyone!
**UPDATE: I promise I do know how to spell! haha I spelled ‘hooray’ correctly in my post, but unfortunately not on the printable. It is now fixed. 🙂
What do you think? I am loving these cute Lip Balm Birthday Cards I created, and hopefully our Primary teachers will as well! We had been trying to think of what to give to our teachers, but we just couldn’t decide on exactly what we wanted to do. Last year we gave them Kit Kats with a coupon, HERE, but no one even used the coupons! haha
So, this year we wanted to do something we knew they would enjoy. And EVERYONE uses chapstick, so this was the winner! I have seen these cute little EOS lip balm cards everywhere. I saw a whole lot of Christmas ones, but not very many Birthday ones, so I got to work and created these!
I decided to come up with 2 different sayings (as seen above). I thought it would be nice to just have a simple ‘Happy Birthday’ type card, and then I thought it would be fun to throw in a ‘balm’ pun as well.
I also created cards that you could use for YW, Relief Society, Primary, and even some blank cards for those of you who would like to do this for a friend!
How to Put Together Your Lip Balm Birthday Card
First, you’ll need to go out and buy your lip balm. You can use the EOS brand or another similar ‘ball’ type lip balm. The lip balk I used in the pictures above were another brand, REVO. There were lots of different colors to choose from, so take your pick of colors!
Next, you will need to print out the card(s) you are needing. Just click the link(s) below to print yours out (there are 2 per page). I recommend printing the cards on cardstock. You can use regular paper, but cardstock is thicker and will look a little better. :)
After you have printed the cards, you will need to cut out a hole for the lip balm to fit in. You can do this by cutting with scissors or using a 1 1/2″ paper punch. I only had a 2″ punch, so my handy scissors did the trick.
Here’s a picture of the actual card that will be printed. You’ll be cutting out the white circle at the bottom of the balloons.
Now that you’ve got the hole cut out, it’s time to add the lip balm! I wasn’t sure how people did this, so I had to research online. 🙂 The trick is to open the lip balm, and place the bottom part through the hole, and then screw the top on, on top of the card. Make sense???
That way your lip balm won’t slip through because you twisted the top of the lip balm onto the paper!
Are you ready to create your own Birthday Lip Balm cards!?! My daughter was begging me to give her one…sorry honey! Maybe for her birthday. 🙂

Worried about those wonderful men that help in Primary? No worries, I have an equally cute (yet yummy) idea in mind. I’ll be posting those soon. 🙂
I hope you like my Birthday Lip Balm cards as much as I do. And if you use them, then I hope the recipient enjoys it as well. 🙂 I would love to hear if you use the cards, and how they turn out, so leave me a comment letting me know.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
