Candle Card Tutorial

                                  Today I would like to share with you a tutorial for a candle card

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
The base
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.

Step 6:
 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
