Tea Light Box

Hello! I was inspired to make this gift box and matching card for the challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations. Here is their theme for the week:

The box holds a couple of tea lights and I got the tutorial for it here. My version is made from Rose Red cardstock and Sweet Sugarplum dsp. The black bow was made using the Bow Builder punch with Colour Me Irresistible speciality dsp (currently available on the Clearance Rack!) I made it with a snippet left over from making a Halloween box. The sentiment comes from Jar of Love.
The matching 3 x 3 card features a very cute couple of ladybirds from the hostess stamp set, Love You Lots. I coloured them with Rose Red ink using a blender pen.
I was delighted that my pleated card was one of the picks over at Pixie's Snippets Playground. Thank you Di (and Parsnip)! My box and card are a veritable hotbed of snippets so I am sending them through the gates! April x


  1. This is a beautiful set April and I love the way you've combined the red spotty paper with the ladybirds. A lovely little gift and card set. Barbxx

  2. Brilliant April! Someone is gonna love this darling box of tea lights and matching card! Those little ladybirds are so cute too!

    If you come to play in the Playground, check the soles of your shoes as you leave for home - only sayin'! :)
