With Christmas on the way, I just couldn't pass up making a wonderful lip balm cover with mistletoe on it. Change the colors of the background to match your favorite color. My husband suggested that it would look gorgeous with a black background.
This cover will go over a Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, Lip Smackers and other lip balms.
Mistletoe has been in folklore and mythology since the 13th century. In mythology, it stood for the devine male essence. Then when Christianity came to Europe, both the mythological and Christian meanings were mixed. This is where the practice of a couple standing under the mistletoe around Christmas time had to kiss. The very first time this happened, which is documented, was the 16th century.
