EOS Lip Balm Gift Box

Hello Everyone.
I hope you are having a nice weekend.  Today's video tutorial is about how to make a special gift box for the oddly shaped EOS lip balm.  It would make a great stocking-stuffer or just a nice little gift for someone.  I've used the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  It is so very pretty and has a pearlized sheen to it.
