Those of you who follow my blog will know I am most definitely a card maker, but today I have stretched myself and made this simple matchbox to hold a tea light.
I have used Tempting Turquoise as the colour theme. This is a retiring colour. Of course, this can be made in whatever colour you wish… There are plenty to choose from in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.
I used the large floral image was stamped to create a background.
The topper was made with a combination of circle punches and layering circles dies.
The sentiment was stamped first, adding the stars over the top with second and third generation ink.
The final piece was added to the card with dimensionals.
To make the gift box, I began by constructing the insert for the tea light.
A piece if card stock was cut to 3-1/4 inches square and scored on all sides at 1/4 inch. A die was used to cut the aperture.
The tray was made next. Card stock was cut to 3-3/4 inches square and scored on each side at a fraction under 1/2 inch. The insert was secure in place with a little multipurpose glue.
To make the sleeve, a strip of card stock 2-13/16 inch wide was cut from the full length of an A4 sheet. This was scored at 2-13/16. The next score was made 9/16 from the first. Continue until three squares have been created and cut away the excess.
The centre square was decorated in the same way as the card.
The end squares were adhered together with fast fuse to form the sleeve.
I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.
I would love to be your demonstrator! Be sure to check the latest deals on the clearance rack and the list of retiring products…. When they are gone they are gone!!
There is also an exciting early release bundle which is truly stunning. See below.
