Stampin’ Up! UK Double Oversized Tea Light Box Tutorial
I love tea lights. They make a room feel that smidge more homely. But I really love oversized tea lights. I’m one of those people who’ll have 10 small ones burning in one room, and don’t even go there with how many I light each night at Christmas. Put it this way, I’m lucky if a bag of ikea tealights lasts 3 nights…. So oversized tea lights which last more than twice as long are fabulous inside coloured vases and jars. We have them all over the place.
But while I realise that in some places they’re not overly common place, check out your local supermarket and those funny shops that seem to sell everything and nothing!
This tutorial shows you how to make a box to hold two, how to punch the holes in the top and how to get that decorative edge too!
