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.
