Tutorial Thursday Holiday Gift Idea # 1 Heartfelt Creations Candle Box

This small rectangle box will hold three tea light candles perfectly for a quick and easy holiday or hostess gift. Here are the directions to make this wonderful little gift.

  1. Cut a piece of cardstock 3 1/2 inches by 12 inches. Score on all four sides at 1 inch. Score on the long side at 5 1/2 inches and 6 1/2 inches.
  2. Fold on score lines and cut up to score lines. Add glue to all six tabs and assemble the box.
  3. Cut out a small candle image from the Heartfelt Creations Festive Holiday paper. Cut out 2 pieces of designer paper 1 inch by 1 1/2 inches, 2 pieces of designer paper at 1 inch by 4 1/2 inches 1 piece of designer paper at 1 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches. Glue papers in place on top and sides of box. Form tape the candle image to the top of the box.
  4. Tie a piece of ribbon around the completed box after placing three candles inside the box.

I am entering this wonderful little gift box for the Anything Goes challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters.

I would love to know what you think of this simple holiday or hostess gift. Would you like to see more projects and directions for holiday and hostess gifts?
