Valentine's Candle Enhancer



This is an idea I came up with yesterday while staying home with my DD who has strep. It uses Chris' technique of cutting up PTI plastic storage boxes and running them through a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The CB folder I used here is Textile. I took a 3" by 12" piece of Basic Grey DP, scored it every 2 7/8". This gives you 4 sides plus about 1/2". I punched holes in each side with my Marvy circle punch, used the next size up to punch a circle out of the embossed plastic, used glue dots to affix the plastic to the back side of the DP, then used Sticky Strip tape to seal the flap into a cube. Outside is decorated with punched hearts and rhinestones from K & Co. Sentiment is from PTI's Out on a Limb Sents. Here is a pic with the tea light turned off, maybe you can see the embossing on the window a little better.


This was very easy to do, and I think makes a cute little Valentine's Day decoration. Hope you enjoy looking. Have a great day everyone!
