Window Box Tea Light


Here's the last of the four projects that will be made at my Occasions Catalog Stamp Camp next week. I love the Window Box Thinlits, and the Oh So Succulent Bundle is wonderful! Isn't that flower beautiful?


I also put a battery-operated tea light inside of this box. I love how pretty it looks all lit up. Of course, it would make a beautiful gift box, as well.


Dimensions:
  • Early Espresso:  (2) 6-1/4" x 5-3/4" (box pieces)
  • Pear Pizzazz:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (succulent flower)
  • Vellum Cardstock:  6" x 2" (inserts)
  • Lace Doily:  1
Tips:
  1. The flower was made by die-cutting two each the following dies from the Pear Pizzazz piece:  the largest wide-petaled flower die, the middle-sized wide-petaled flower die, and the smallest wide-petaled flower die. The smallest, narrow-petaled flower die needs to be die-cut once, and the vine-like thinlit die needs die-cut three times from the same piece of cardstock. All of the dies come from the Succulent Framelits Dies. The wide flower petals were stamped using the curved-image stamps from the Oh, So Succulent Stamp Set using the Cajun Craze Classic Stampin' Pad.
  2. The flower pieces need to be curved up by rubbing them across the Bone Folder a few times.
  3. The flower was put together with Multipurpose Glue.
  4. The box was put together using Multipurpose Glue, and the Lace Doily was put on the lid using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. The flower was then put on with Multipurpose Glue.
  5. The six vellum squares were made using the #4 square die (the smallest square die is #1) from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies. They were attached to the inside of all six box sides using a Mini Glue Dot on each corner of the vellum squares.
Below is a great video showing how to put the Window Box together:
