Yankee Candle Votive Display Holder

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Yankee Candle Votive Display Holder


Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Yankee Candle Votive Display Holder


Hmm, well this little chappy proved problematic from the moment I decided to make something for a yankee votive that was a little different.

I wanted a box with a built in lid, but after struggling a little with the cardstock sizing, I decided to rip off the (attempt at a) lid and much preferred this look!

What I was aiming for was a votive holder that disguised that it was a votive tucked inside.

Did I succeed? I think so!

You’d not realise perhaps that tucked into the bulk of the box was the rest of the votive!

It’s not nearly as complicated to make as you’d think, so I hope you have a go at making some too!

I hope the video is useful!


  Editing to add, because some have queried this, Today’s post – please do NOT burn the candles in the box, as I say in the video, these are to display when GIVING, or for a display on a craft table when selling.

  1. Hi Sam
    Another gorgeous box. You do come up with the most amazing ideas. Thank you so much for sharing them with us all. As I don’t have that size punch I’m going to have to use a die instead.

    Love it! You are quite the box genius. Great quick gift idea. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I absolutely love it Sam, what a fabulous little container for those rather plain votive candles, this could look just lovely as a party favor for showers and weddings.

    Sam, your videos are such fun. Love how you share all that goes into them – especially the times when all doesn’t go according to plan. Makes them even better. I agree about the paper. Wasn’t real wild about it at first, but it’s lookin’ better. Thank you for sharign your talents.

    That Bohemian paper is really starting to grow on me. It looks great on this cute little box!
