I was bored and looking at my massive amount of candles. I have tons of candles and candle holders as my MIL is a PartyLite consultant. I thought, hmmm, I would like to make those prettier. So I came up with this template. Well actually, to tell you the truth I kinda traced the PartyLite vootive box. That was actually hard to keep it flat and trace all the nooks and crannnies. If you would like the template I would be happy to share it with you.
I used patterned paper that was sturdier. The patterned paper that is thinner didn't like holding the candles. In fact I made a box using thinner paper and out fell the votives as soon as I picked it up.
Even though I chose thicker paper, I still added some chipboard to the bottom of the box just to give it a bit of extra sturdiness.
I think this was Basic Grey paper but I can't remember. I wrapped RidingHood Red cardstock around the box next. I found the ribbon at Michaels and picked up a bunch of it because it matches chocolate chip almost to a T!
I used the small tag stamp from Two Cool Dudes and stamped it in soft sky. I then colored in the nose, scarf, and nose with markers. I used a glue pen and glitter on the snowman outline. Then it was matted on RidingHodd Red using the Big tag punch.I added the silver eyelet and attached it to the box with white ribbon.
Have a great Monday!
