Twist & Close Octagonal Box for Yankee Candle Jar

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Twist & Close Octagonal Box for Yankee Candle Jar


Happy Wednesday everyone!

I love these boxes! The Twist & Close design I came up with back in February has been a huge hit and I love all the different variations I’m seeing. Today though, I’ve got a project very specifically designed for a Yankee Candle Small Jar Candle. I love these ones and have a largeish quantity dotted around my house! And they make wonderful gifts!

So my papers and decoration match the candle inside – hence the slightly quirky colour combinations, but I really think they work well!

A great way to show off our lovely colours and beautiful background stacks too!

The question is, which is your favourite fragrance? I love Pink Sands and Rhubarb Crumble and at Christmas, All is Bright was our scent of choice. But there’s so many to choose from and we have so many colours, that no matter what someone’s favourite is, there’s a scent and colour to match!

Have a super day everyone,
