Tinkering with Tealights





Just had to share a fun new gift idea I learned about at my last stamp club yesterday! My SU demonstrator had us make a gift box that holds 4 tea lights. The snowflake is stamped on punched tissue paper circles. A small center hole is punched to accommodate the wick, then you heat it several seconds with a heat gun and it melts into the wax. Here is a link to Tanya's online tutorial for a detailed description of the process. The box can be made from a single sheet of CS. You can also fit bite size candies (like Snickers bars) into this box.
Challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Blue,
Blue Christmas
Paper Sundaes Challenge #47 - Gift It!
City Crafter Challenge - Blue Christmas

Cute Card Thursday - the blues

STAMPS: SU
PAPER: Night of Navy, White
INK: Night of Navy
ACCESSORIES: Tag punch (SU), Sheer ribbon, Silver elastic cording, Dazzling Diamonds glitter

How sweet!! Absolutely adorable gift!! Did Deb Horst do the SU demo thing-- I know she used to do the Verve challenges but, assuming she stopped for the SU business???
