As promised earlier this week, when I showed you the candle I stamped with the flower from the Color Me Happy stamp set here’s the box I made for it…
To make this box I used Powder Pink card measuring 10.5 x 6 inches. I scored on the long side at 2.5, 5. 7.5 and 10 inches. On the short side I scored at 2.5 inches.
I stamped a panel of Whisper White (measuring 2.25 inches x 11.7 inches) with the flower stamp from Color Me Happy in Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst and Melon Mambo inks to coordinate with the candle colours. I cut a 4 panels 2.25 inches x 3.25 and glued them to each side of my box base.
For the lid I used a piece of Powder Pink card measuring 3.5 x 3.5 inches. I scored this at just under 1/2 inch on each side. I added a Berry Burst panel of 2.25 x 2.25 inches and then a bit of the stamped card measuring 2 x 2 inches.
For the decoration I used the Pansy Punch to cut a window as I didn’t want to completely hide the pretty matching candle. I added a piece of Window Sheet with mini glue dots. I also stamped the Celebrate from Color Me Happy in Berry Burst ink on Powder Pink card and matted it onto a panel of Berry Burst card. The final touch was adding 3 self adhesive Tutti-Frutti sequins.
Once I’d assembled the box and lid I tied them together with Whisper White Organza Ribbon, which I think is one of my favourites right now, it’s so delicate and pretty and finished off so many projects perfectly.
I hope you agree that this candle and box would make a lovely little gift to a loved one. If you’d like to make your own, I’ve listed the products I used below. Just click on any of the images below to visit my online shop.
