Candle Light Holder - With a simple tutorial (Picture heavy post)

 Hi Crafty friends,

How are you all? Am super excited to share a project and inspire you. This is my first post as a DT and please bear with me for any errors. And as a DT, am enjoying seeing all of you return over and over to share your creations. Thank you for all your participation and please continue to do so.

So, how is the weather out there in your place? The slight chill in the climate tells me that Christmas is fast approaching. I simply love this time of the year as there are continuous festivals to celebrate, all the ‘big’ holidays are just around the corner and the year end is in sight. And, I love it for the family fun, get together, loads of shopping and yes, the Gifts….

With a countdown to Christmas, a bundle of Christmas cooking and craft projects are on the roll. 

Now on to my creation.

Am here to share a tutorial on how to gift the tea lights in a nice handcrafted box. Something common to both Diwali and Christmas. Followed the tutorial by Joann Jamieson to make this box.

  1. Took a piece of pink cardstock measuring 8 1/4” by 3 3/4”. Score at the longer side at ½”, 1 1 /8”, 7 1/8” and 7 ¾” and the shorter side at ½”, 1 1/8”, 2 5/8” and 3 ¼”. Make crisp creases.

  1. Cut out the ‘L’ shape of each corner as shown in the 2nd pic. Snip at all the four corners which will allow the little fold to flap up.

  1. Apply glue on the shaded part in the pic and glue down the outer flap towards inside as seen in the 3rd pic.

  1. Apply glue in the shaded part as shown in the 4th pic and glue it down together.

  1. Apply glue to the snipped ends and fold them to hold the box together.

  1. The box to hold the tea lights is ready.

  1. Now I took my Tim Holtz on the Edge die.

  1. Cut out 2 pcs of pattern paper and 2 pcs of the same pink card stock. Adjusted their heights and stuck them to the box.

Now, Embellish as you wish and the handcrafted cute Tea light holder is ready.

This is fairly simple to do and goes really fast.

Along with this, I made a Christmas tree treat box and a Luminary holder with a LED tealight inside.

Hope you all liked it.

Now that you have seen what I did with the theme, Its your turn! Create any project based on the above theme and link it up here. Add that personal touch to your gifts this festive season, Share it with us and you have a chance of winning a gift from the Imaginations Online store.

Not to forget, Please let me know how you liked this idea in a comment.

Supplies Used:

Handmade paper
Linen paper
Mulberry paper flowers
Snow flake punch 
Timholtz On the edge die -Ornate 
Fiskars All that glitters stamp (On the Luminary)
Pattern papers

Hello peeps
OCTOBER is generally meant for big festivals in India.
Festive month is full of household cleaning ( we call it diwali ki safai ).. for almost all of us here in INDIA.
Diwali is round the corner and here we introduce to you new inspiring and creative DT members to our IMAGINATIONS family and we bid bye to REENA (for some personal reasons).
SO here are the three new amazing members ..

Hi, I am a stay at home mother of  two cute little princesses – one, a three year old and a 7 months old with whom I enjoy life playing n dancing.  I always had a passion towards crafts and was introduced to paper crafting about two year ago.  However, if I had to describe my style of Crafting, I'd say I love it Simple.  Paper crafting has not only provided me a feel of tranquility, It gives me a great satisfaction when I see my thoughts come alive. Last but not the least; my husband is the best in the world. Besides supporting me in this endeavor, he gives me creative ideas and pays for it all as I began crafting with few Quilling strips and a needle.  What was once contained in a box has now exploded into an entire craft room.

Hello peeps...This is Ayushi Gupta, from the city "dilli dil waalo ki ".
I m super excited and thrilled to be the part of imaginations as DT. This would be my first time as a DT
I started exploring crafting 2 years ago. Started as a hobby. but was unaware that it would become my passion. Crafting is such a stress buster for me and gives immense satisfaction :) I love experimenting and exploring new things.
