What?  So now I have a box full of empty tubes coming my way.

    OH NO...THAT IS AWFUL!  Sorry about that!  Can you use them for anything else?  Maybe people can post suggestions.

    I mentioned in the thread for my resort (Azul Sensatori) that I made these and there was a lot of interest.. so here goes:

     

    I bought the chapstick from a website called Bulk Apothecary for .14 cents/chapstick with NO MINIMUM! Whooo! I ordered 50. Talk about cheap! These are the ones I bought: http://www.bulkapothecary.com/containers/lip-balm-tubes-jars-and-tins/white-stick-standard-15-oz-lip-balm-tube/

     

    The picture shows a blue chapstick but it is clear (and tastes like regular chapstick). I am very happy with the quality. 

     

    They also have flavors for .19 cents/chapstick. These: http://www.bulkapothecary.com/lip-balm/white-stick-lip-balm-comes-in-6-great-flavors-starting-at-19-unit/

     

    The website also offers the labels you need in order to make your chapsticks personalized. The sheets are only $1 per sheet and there are 15 labels/sheet.

     

    Once my items came in the mail I got to work designing my label. I dabble in graphic design and find it very fun! 

     

    When I was ready to print my labels I was able to find a template for them online here: (You can also ask Bulk Apothecary and they will email you a template)

    http://www.onlinelab...mplate-pdf.htm 

     

    At first I messed up because I thought the orientation of the label was top to bottom, but its left to right (sideways) so I had to tweek my design and upload the design into the template sideways.

     

    Once I got that straightened out I was good to go and all I had to do was put the stickers on my chapstick tubes. I have to say I am so pleased with how they came out and I think they will really be a hit!

     

    One side says MEXICO Wedding Week June 2013 Azul Sensatori Riviera Maya, MX

    and the other says Besos! Meg & Dan

     

    Sorry for the kind of crappy picture quality. I was trying to get the stick from all angles and I tried some with flash and some without.

    I'm so sorry this happened! I would try contacting them again and speaking with someone else.

      I know...it sucks!  I called and I would have to pay to ship them back.  It's not worth it so I will just hold on to them.  Maybe one day they will come in handy.

        Megan - Is there a way to edit the the link you posted where you ordered your first ones where the tubes came empty? I wonder if that's also confusing people to order the wrong ones? I can't believe this company haven't made this more clear. I'm so sorry this happened! I would try contacting them again and speaking with someone else.

        I am so sorry .... I can't believe that. When I contacted them saying my tubes came empty they just sent the right ones. No question or fees, etc. unreal! I truly am sorry... It won't let me edit the thread so I can't change it. :/

          It's okay! No sweat! I will find something to do with them. I have quite a few friends that are teachers...I will probably donate the tubes to one of them.

          That's a great idea. I have the empty ones, too!
