Now for my project:
I saw a tutorial on Sam Donaldson's blog creating these cute little boxes which would hold a dozen tea lights. I made a couple of them before I realized that the dimensions of her boxes were not going to work for our American tea lights, which are a little larger.
I had to rework all the dimensions, which for a math flunky like myself was a huge challenge. I finally got it right! Here are the results...
I found the DP at Hobby Lobby. As it's still summer here I'm just not feeling that cool chill to prepare me for some Fall creations. So my recreated box hold 12 little tea lights.
I've used #3123 Pisces Tilda on the front of the box. I chose the Labels 18 Dies for the aperture in the box and to mount Tilda on the box. The ribbon is from my stack and holds the box closed. I stamped a SU Sentiment onto a tag that has a silver border. I've got a ton of these and have forgotten all about them. I also added a piece of clear cardstock on the inside of the lid to prevent the candles from falling out.
As you can see, the box holds the candles in two layers - six on each.
Here is a closer look so you can see that it really does hold 12 tea lights. And notice that the front edge of the box lid is also cut in the same shape (or 1/2) as the aperture
Here are the first few that I made. You will notice that these smaller boxes could only hold 5 tea lights.

|Here I just used some pretty design paper. This style of box work best if the opening in the lid is smaller.|
|Again I used some pretty design paper and a little sentiment.|
Thanks for stopping by today and leaving me a comment. That comment just might get you that Surprise Package. Good luck...
Many blessing to each of you,
