When one is sharing how to hand cut and create a tiny rose, one always hopes that a cat won’t suddenly leap onto the desk… Well yes, my lovely Fennel did exactly that in today’s video. I was literally just cutting a rose and she jumped up!
What you couldn’t see because it was off camera, was her parading all around the desk and sitting on everything. She sat on my rhinestones, sat on my dimensionals, and then flicked her tail (crossly presumably!) across the grid paper. Yes, you did get to see that. Clearly she wasn’t happy with me about something!
I do adore her, she’s 12 years old now, and is my every day comforter and confidante….
Anyway, back to the project! I love the Yankee Candle fragrance Loves Me, Loves Me Not, but it’s long discontinued and very hard to find. I managed to snap up a bargain pack of votives from ebay recently at pretty much retail price rather than the usually ridiculously inflated price you normally see for this scent. And because I now have a large number of them, I wanted to create a box for them.
I have made this box before, although without a lid, and a few people questioned the fire hazard safety of it. Well the box wasn’t designed to have the candle in, and then lit. It was designed as a gift box. I hope that this one, with a lid (and some hefty health and safety warnings) is well received!
Cardstock for Base AND Lid – 5 x 5″ (13 x 13cm) Each
Cardstock for Inner – 4-15/16 x 1-15/16″ (12.8 x 4.8cm)
