For this project you will need:
Piece card 10”x7-1/2” (Base)
Piece card 6-1/2” x 6”
Patterned paper of your choice
Small piece acetate
4 tea light candles
Double sided tape or glue
Embellishments of your choice.
Note: we are working in inches for this project
Step 1: Using the larger piece of card score at ¾” and 6 ¾”
Rotate card and score the short side at ½”, 1 ¼”, 2 ¾”, 3 ½”, 5” and 8 ¼”.
Step 2: Cut out the card as shown in the diagram
Your card should look like this.
Step 3: Turn the card around and insert and tape the piece of acetate inside the aperture. Fold the box and glue the base flaps together.
Step 4: To make the front cover cut a piece of card 6 ½” by 6”
Score at 5 ¾”
Step 5: Using double sided tape or glue along the ¾” section attach this piece to the ¾” section on the base of the card.
This then becomes the front cover.
Now the box is finished and it is time to decorate your card inside and out and insert the tea light candles.
I have made mine into a birthday card but this project would be excellent for any occasion when you want just a bit more than a card. I have used Spellbinders Lotus Pendant on the front, along with a Creatables die, made a gathered lace flower and layered with paper flowers and rhinestone and pearl flourish. On the inside I have used Spellbinders Octagonal dies with a verse, flowers, rhinestones and I also added a pocket on the inside for a tag. I also used a Sticker Store greeting.
This idea was adapted from a Whiff of Joy Inspirations project
Have a great weekend
