Sweet Gift Box For a Heart Shaped Tealight

Hi my crafty friends!!

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

I was doing some shopping the other day at my local Tesco. I came across the sweetest heart shaped Tealights in a clearance box. I new they would look so pretty in a handmade gift box!!

I hope you agree.

These little boxes really are so quick and simple to make and the most important thing,  is that they look great!!

The box to the left of the picture is made with Pool party card stock. I thought it matched really well with the candle. The stamp set i used is a hostess set called Background Bits. You can earn this FREE when you spend a minimum of £150 with me. I also often send hostess sets out to my customers when they shop with me and use my rewards code.
I heat embossed the stamped images with silver embossing powder.

The box to the right of the picture is made using Wisteria wonder card stock. This really is such a pretty colour that i don't use half as much as i should.
I used the beautiful background stamp called marbled to get the beautiful pattern on the box. I used Wisteria wonder Ink for that.

Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions.


CARD FOR THE CANDLE BASE MEASURES 6 1/2" X 3 3/4"         OR        16.5 CM X 9.5 CM

Cute Triangle Gift Box Using Lots Of Love Stampin Up!

Hi my craft friends!!

Welcome to my blog for my usual Sunday tutorial.

I was just thinking the other day that its been a while since i created my own DSP. The box that i have today was the perfect opportunity for that.

I have used a beautiful stamp set called Lots of love, ideal for creating your own backgrounds. This really is a sweet little box that would make perfect table favors.

I hope you like today's project.

I have put 2 normal sized Tealights in my box but you could fit 1 more in, maybe 2. Of course you can use this little box for other things too. I think it would be great to gift a Lipstick or a bottle of Nail Varnish, the choice is yours.

Please watch my youtube tutorial for full instructions on how to make this box.


Whisper white card measuring 8 1/4" x 11 3/4"  (A4 UK)

Score the short side @ 3 3/8" & 4 7/8"

Score the long side @ 4 5/8" & 7 1/8"

Score the long thin ends @ 1 1/8" on both sides

I hope you like my little box and will have a go at making one yourself. I love to see your makes so please feel free to send me your photos!! You can email them to me @:

Thank you

 Bye for now

Beautiful Gift Box with Vellum Wrap for 1 Glass Tealight/Small Gifts

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog.

I really love today's project! It is so sweet but at the same time quite elegant & also professional looking i think!
Also very simple to make & you only need a small amount of card, DSP etc.

I hope you like it as much as i do!

I just love these little boxes!
I made mine to hold 1 Glass Tealight but i think you could also use these as Wedding Favors. The choice is yours really but you don't just have to put a candle in it.

The vellum wrap keeps the lid of the box closed. I die cut mine with a die from the Eastern Palace suite. I love the way it shows through the gold vinyl sticker.
You could even heat emboss your vellum if you wanted to.

You will find a list of the products i used at the bottom of this post. If you click them it will take you directly to my online shop. Please do not forget to add the hostess code which can be found in the top right hand corner of this blog.
