Tea Light Card

While browsing around the internet I came across a gorgeous little project by Marianne Skjelstad that I just couldn't wait to try. It's a card, gift and tag all in one and is quite easy to make.

Here's the front of my tea light card:

And the inside:

(Apart from the patterned papers I've used for this project, everything else is SU. Much as I love SU stuff (and I truly do) when it comes to pretty, feminine floral papers, they just don't do it for me. Sigh! I wish they would, I really, really do! Anyways, I've used some papers I had sitting around and you'll probably notice that I do tend to buy papers that match well with SU colours!)

On the original project, Marianne had tied some ribbon around the box on the inside (presumably to hold the tea lights in), but I attached a piece of acetate inside instead. I put the open flap of my box towards the spine of the card rather than the outside, as I find my flap is a bit loose and prone to come open and I didn't want all the candles falling out!

Materials used:

  • stamps - Butterfly Basics
  • card - crumb cake, whisper white, rose red, non SU patterned papers
  • other - deco labels framelits, Big Shot, sticky strip, butterfly thinlits die, pearls, dimensionals, acetate, scallop trim border punch, sponge dauber, white organza ribbon, bone folder

My thanks to Marianne for sharing her project and the wonderful tutorial for making it. If you'd like to make one for yourself, follow the link HERE.

Thanks for dropping by.
