Candle Box

Morning All

Well have had the worse chest infection which has put me out of action for 3 weeks, but on the mend now, so I thought I would make a box for a candle that I bought some time ago.  It is for a friend who loves succulents, so I had to make this with the gorgeous papers that are now retired, but as I love them so much needed to use them.

I made the box using Wild Wasabi card stock, the measurements are

BASE BOX:  8" x 4"   - on the long side scored at 1/2"  3 3/4"  4 1/4"  7 1/2 "
                                       on the short side scored at 1/2" and 3 1/2"

I cut out a circle that fits my candle

WRAP:  115/8" x 3 1/2"  score on the long side at 2 11/16"  7 1/16"  10 3/16"

DSP: 3 1/4 x 5/8"     3 1/4 x 4 1/8"    3 1/4" x 2 1/2"

I glued the base box inside the wrap and then cut out an Oval to make my label, I also heat embossed the sentiment with white and added a little bow.  The sentiment is also from an older set called Really Good Greeting.

I used a little magnet for the closure, can fussy cut one of the flowers from the DSP to hide it.

I took the idea from lots of inspiration on Pinterest and You Tube and used my own measurements to accommodate my little candle.

Thanks as always for looking.
