Tealight Gift Box & Co-ordinating Card

Hi there, Friday has come round so fast this week, not that I'm complaining!

I can't remember which blog I read it on, but it asked what do you do with all your scraps? Well I have to say I keep them, as I am sure everyone else out there does. With this in mind I raided the ever growing pile and came across the now retired Bella Bleu DSP. I still love this design.

I promised to be back with another shabby chic flower to show you. A little late, but here is the set that I made.

Anyone that knows me knows that I love candles as much as I do crafting. So I was a little disappointed to find that the measurements for the box did not fit my usual make of tealight. Shock, horror, I had to put in some cheap ones - you know the ones where you get hundreds for a £1. My own fault really as I should have checked my tealights first.

Never to be put off, I set about and came up with the right measurements for a larger box.

You can see the difference in size, plus I added an extra layer to the flower. Also on the first box it was fiddly to slide out the inner section as it is quite a tight fit. So on the larger box I added a little ribbon as an handle.

With my favourite tealights in.

Then I got thinking about Christmas - oh the possibilities are endless :-)

Have you got a busy weekend planned? I am Esther sitting tomorrow - just love her to bits. It's lovely having babies around and can not wait for our Grandson to arrive in October.

Have a great weekend whatever you are up to.

Thanks for stopping by.
