It’s early November so I know we all have the best intentions when it comes to making gifts but if by chance, you’re like me, and find yourself needing a quick Christmas gift in about a month and a half, this Rudolph Lip Balm gift is for you! My name is Vanessa (Tried & True) and I’m so happy to be sharing this super easy DIY Rudolph Christmas Gift with all you lovely Crafty Chicks! Thanks for having me!
First things first, you’re going to need the “Rudolph Easy Christmas Gift” free printable (click over to my site to download the file.) After you’ve printed it out, trim around the edges, apply glue to the back, and stick in place on a piece of foam core. Use a craft knife to remove the nose section and insert an EOS Summer Fruit (or any other red variety) lip balm.
Technically, that’s all you have to do. How easy was that?! If you want, you can put the card in a clear cellophane bag with a little bit of baker’s twine and decorations. It’s a super quick way to add that finishing touch to the gift!
If you liked this easy Christmas gift, you’re definitely going to love all the other easy tutorials on my blog, Tried & True, including the Magnetic Robot Stocking Stuffer, Holiday Tag Making Kit, and the super quick 10 Minute Scarf Wreath!

TOO cute! I love this idea! 😀
The PDF file wants to print full page, but it looks like in your tutorial that this is a rather small item. How big should the page be? Thanks! Super cute gift idea.
I am having the same problem as well! Can’t wait to make these!
I am too! I can’t figure out how to size it down. Any tips would be great!
You’ll need to download it from Vanessa’s site http://www.triedandtrueblog.com/rudolph-christmas-gift-free-printable/
She has 3 different options to choose from!
What kind of cellophane bag did you use? These are adorable!
Wondering…can a ‘Happy Holidays’ version be made?? I am willing to pay, as this is the perfect office gift for our holiday party!!! Please help :-). This is absolutely adorable!!!
Vanessa has a Holiday version on her site http://www.triedandtrueblog.com/rudolph-christmas-gift-free-printable/
Super cute and useful.
I love this! I just printed it on cardstock, cut the center out with scissors, and unscrewed the lipbalm, and screwed it together one on front, and one on the back. It stayed great! THank you!

So when I cut the red nose out, do I cut through the foam too? Thanks!
I love the Rudolph project ,do you also cute a hole thru the foam core ? Having trouble attaching the lip balm . Ty and happy holidays.
Thank you soooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!! Made these for my team. (Second grade teachers)
Thank you so much! This is adorable…
Could you design an Easter Bunny face with lip balm as nose so you could use pastel color balm? It would be a hit.
