FREE Tea Light Box Tutorial

Hello everyone -

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I am doing some house keeping over the next couple weeks to bring a more streamlined and exciting forum for you to enjoy.  As promised I am going to share a quick easy tutorial on how to create adorable Yankee Candle Tea Light boxes that make the perfect gift.  First and foremost is your supply list:
Please note all item #'s are from the current Stampin' Up! annual catalog. You will need a paper trimmer #126889, the Envelope punch board #133774, adhesive (I used Fast Fuse #129026), a 1" circle punch #119868, the 7/8 scallop circle punch #12904, designer series paper and ribbon of your choice, Stampin' Dimensionals #104430, and Gold or Silver Glitter paper depending on your color combination.

Step one:
Cut squares that are 4 1/8" on all sides.
 
Step two:
You are going to use the envelope board and line up the paper punching and scoring on all 4 sides at 1/2" & 2 5/8"....you will just punch, score and rotate the paper and do it again until all 4 sides are punched and scored.


This is what it will look like...
 
 
Step three:
Now take your scoring tool and fold all the score lines down.

Step four:
Next you are going to cut all 4 small areas at the score line on each side. See picture.
Step five:
At this time you are going to use the reverse punch to round your corners and then you are going to use some fast fuse and apply it to the two tabs you just cut on the bottom of your box and to each side of and bottom piece of your box.


Step six:
Now you want to pull it together by adhering the bottom tabs to the bottom piece and then work your way to the sides so it looks like a box.

Step seven:
Insert your tea light into the box and close it up.
Step eight:
Next you are going to take ribbon of your choice and wrap it around the center of the box.
Step nine:
Now you are going to punch one 1" circle and one 7/8" scallop circle out for each box that you are making.  Then you will add a stampin' dimensional to each of them.

This is what your final project will look like. 

I hope you enjoyed this quick project. If you would like the opportunity for more tutorials please don't forget to enter your email to follow this page.  Thanks and have a great day!
