Happy Birthday candle box

Hello!  Today’s project was inspired by a shopping bargain. I picked up a few small Yankee jar candles in an outlet store during my recent visit to Gretna Green. One of my bargains was in one of my favourite scents; Vanilla Lime!

So I just had to make a box for it, ready for a small birthday gift…


The base for my box just had to be Lemon Lime Twist for my Vanilla Lime candle, lol.

I decided to use this confetti style paper from Picture Perfect Party designer series paper, which also has some Bermuda Bay circles in it. So I added panels of Bermuda Bay card to the box before adding the DSP.

The Happy Birthday sentiment comes from Confetti Celebrations stamp set.  I stamped in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White card and used my 2 inch punch to tie in with the circles on the paper. I also used the balloon stamp from the same set to add the partial circles to the Whisper White card in both Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist ink. I popped the sentiment up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally I punched holes in the top of the carton and used Lemon Lime Twist mini striped ribbon to tie the box closed.


The credit for this style of box goes to Pootles Papercraft as I followed her instructions for the measurements. Thanks Sam!
