Tealight Treat Box Tutorial
It’s that time of year again. I mentioned it at the beginning of the week – lots of schools are closing down for the summer, children are moving to different schools, and teachers all over are being thanked for their hard work and teaching throughout the year.
Having talked to many teachers over the year, while they love the boxes of chocolates and bottles of wine (who wouldn’t!), what they really look forward to are the gifts made by the child, and given by them rather than by the parents.
This is a project that my sons and I have made a few times now, and it’s always so well received, that I decided to revisit it again this year.
The tea light ‘space’ inside allows for both Ikea tea lights and supermarket shop bought ones. But it also is the perfect size for chandlers who make their own tea lights in the plastic holders. Gotta love a box that suits all!
So I hope you enjoy the video (shown below dimensions etc), there are lots of tea light projects that I’ve done in the last 15 months, so please do search the rest out (search box on the right!)
