Gorgeous Box for 12 Tea Lights Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – Gorgeous Box for 12 Tea Lights Tutorial

Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles - Gorgeous Box for 12 Tea Lights Tutorial Punches Detail

SQUEEEEEEEEEAK!!!!  How gorgeous are these?  Even my husband was impressed, and my Mum, well she’s my biggest support and she adored them too!

I love them! I was thrilled when I spotted the scented tea lights in my local supermarket (Sainsbury’s for those in the UK!), and even more so when I saw they were in packs of 30 for £1.50! BarGain!!!!

And that ridiculously low price point was why I made this box to house 12. Yup, a whole dozen tealights are in each box, which means I can make 2 from one pack of tealights, and still have another half dozen left over.  That makes them 65p ish, to buy the contents.  Well that’s just a silly price to start with! Then minimal supplies (less than a sheet of card, and barely a whiff of DSP) and it’s a beautiful project for any kind of budget.

But I love it, whether it was expensively made or not, and I really do hope you do too!

The video is here, it’s always best to watch in HD 😉

    I love all of your tealight boxes and this one in particular. How difficult would it be to re-create this box for 6 instead of 12 tealights?
