Cutsey Custom Kisses

My friend (and reader) Genna brought this craft idea to my attention yesterday, and I had to share it with you guys! If you're still looking for inexpensive stocking stuffers, classmate/co-worker gifts, or if any of you moms just need something fun to do with a troop of girl scouts or slumber partiers, this may be just the ticket.

Brooke over at Cheeky Kitchen posted a super easy and cute recipe for homemade lip glosses. Click here for the entire post, or just scroll down for the recipe. I suggest clicking, because the site is so much fun you'll want to flip through previous posts. Fair warning: you'll easily kill an hour.

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon paraffin wax
4 teaspoons coconut oil
4 teaspoons petroleum jelly
4 white or pink (or whatever color you like) candy melts
1/2 teaspoon oil-based candy flavoring

Directions:

Grate the wax into a ziploc freezer bag. Add the coconut oil, petroleum jelly, candy melts and the flavoring. Place the bag in a bowl of very hot water and allow the ingredients to melt together. Massage the bag a bit to mix the ingredients together. Snip a corner from the bag and squeeze the ingredients into small containers (we used sterilized bead holders purchased from JoAnn). Pop your lip gloss containers into the fridge to cool completely. Gift and enjoy!

These are so adorable! Now, if you want to up your geek quotient a tad, swap out the pink candy for green and label with a Ghostbusters logo for super slimer-y kisses. Or, go for blue, and see if your smooches transport you through time and space. It's all up to you, and what your imagination can come up with. Have fun, and let me know how they turn out!
