12 Days of Christmas - Hand Made Presents, day 5

I used retired stamp set and Designer Series Paper for this candle set, I also folded a divider inbetween the candles, but it is not necessary for this to look pretty. Think of also just doing the cover from clear window sheet - that way the candles can be seen even without opening the box.

And you can use the tissue paper method also on pillar candles. Just cover the tissue paper with a sheet of wax paper and hold tight when heating the stamped tissue paper into the candle. You can remove the wax paper when the candle has cooled down.
  1. The box starts as a 3-3/4x8-1/4" piece.
  2. Your longest score lines are at 1/2", 1-1/8", 2-5/8", & 3-1/4"
  3. Your short score lines are at 1/2", 1-1/8", 7-1/8", & 7-3/4"
  4. Cut out the shaded areas and on the cut line to make flaps.
  5. Decorate box as desired.
  6. Crease all folds well with bone folder.
  7. Apply sticky strip  to the 4 outer most sections and assemble to box.
  8. The box cover is made from a 5x6" piece. 
  9. Score lines will be 6" long at 5/8", 2-1/4", 2-7/8", & 4-1/2".
  10. Crease folds well with bone folder and put sticky strip on one edge flap.
  11. Decorate top as desired. 
  12. Peel the sticky strip and wrap cover around box, adhere flaps together.
  13. Fold a piece of tissue paper into 4 layers, and sandwich between 2 layers of copy paper. Punch out your 1-3/8" circles. Leave between the copy paper layers and punch 3 times in the center with the 1/16" punch to make a hole big enough for the wick to fit thru.
  14. Stamp tissue paper with desired images.
  15. Slide tissue paper over the wick onto top of the tealight.
  16. Put tealight down! Do not hold for this step. Heat top of tea light  with heat gun until the tissue  paper melts into the wax. All done!

Here is the diagram for the box
