Short Wide Candle Gift Box VIDEO

Stampin Up UK Short Fat Candle Gift Box 4


I love a box that’s multipurpose. And while this is a bespoke box design, it is that great size for holding numerous things.


Stampin Up UK Short Fat Candle Gift Box 2 

The finished dimensions are 3x3x2 (7.5×7.5x5cm) and could hold a couple of bars of soap stacked on one another, gifts, goodies. Or in this case, a candle. Because you see, this is the product that’s destined for sitting inside this box, and because candles are heavy, this needed to have a totally sealed base, so that nothing would fall out.

And so, this video (CLICKETY CLICK HERE!) will show you how I’ve put together the box, and also a tip on how to get boxes to stay shut.
