Here is a fun little box for gift giving. I decided to do a step by step tutorial for you. Although I am contemplating getting back to doing a few video tutorials in the near future.
Picture taken before adding final embellishments.
Note: I designed this and did the tutorial as I went ... so it's not perfect. I had to make some edits along the way and I will list them below. The candle is somewhat different than what I had in my head. I will explain later. :) Also, depending what size your tea light is you may need to modify the size of cardstock used to decorate it.
The idea for decorating the tea light came from HERE.
Let's get started ... You will need two different, but coordinating sheets of cardstock and a sheet of chipboard (optional). Depending on what you plan to put in your gift box, the chipboard will make it a little more sturdy.
|Score down the length of your 3 1/2" x 12" piece of CS at 1/2".|
|Cut your tissue tube down to 1 1/2" tall.|
|Adhere your 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" CS to your tissue tube.|
|Now adhere your 1/2" x 4 3/4" to your tea light. I used my ATG for this.|
|Now adhere the tissue tube candle to the small scallop circle in coordinating pattern. I used hot glue around the inside edges to do this.|
|Now adhere your candle to your large scallop lid. I did this with hot glue and the messiness was all hidden under the small scallop on the candle. See there is a method to my madness. ;)|
