Day 11 Decorated Gift Box Oct 27
Welcome to day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. Today we are showing you gift boxes. My gift box was made using the Mark's Finest Papers Country Thanksgiving image.
This is the inside which shows the box I created to house six tea lights that match the box. The sunflowers are from Mark's Finest Papers and are a part of the Country Thanksgiving set.
I stamped the sunflower on tissue paper and colored it then make a little hole in the center for the wick and placed them on top of the tea light. To seal you just use your heat gun to melt them into the wax a little bit. I sprinkled some glitter on top of mine as well. I did test these out in a votive holder. I didn't have a problem to it got to the very end and then the paper caught on fire...lol Just a word of caution should you decided to make these.
Thanks for stopping by today. We have one more day for the 12 Days of Christmas Blog hop. This is my last project for the hop. I hope you have enjoyed what I had to share with you.
This is a beautiful gift! Nicely done! Love the tealights! They are adorable! Good to know about the paper and fire! Thanks!
