Mini tea light gift box - customer thank yous!

Hi everyone,

The other day I brought you the cards I made to send out with my customer thank you packages last month and today I am bringing the handmade gift they also received. These often challenge me as I am not really a 3D girl - cards is my thing but I can make boxes, bags etc when I am pushed. So for this gift I made small gift boxes, just big enough to hold a scented tea light. 

I used mostly Brights card stock for these - I took the chance to use any of the smaller pieces I had in my scraps box as you only need a small piece of card stock to make these - just 12.5 cm x 7cm (In Imperial that is approx. 5 ins x 2 3/4 ins.

I first stamped the card stock in Versamark with a flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set. And the did the scoring at:

1.5cm, 5.5cm, 7cm and 11cm along the long side.
1.5cm and 5.5cm along the short side. 

After burnishing, snipping out a few parts (see the video for details) and gluing the box together, I decorated it with a daisy flower made with the Medium Daisy punch and the Arrange a Wreath stamp set and dies. 

And here is what was inside, sitting snugly inside the box.

Hope you like these little boxes - such sweet little gifts! Of course there is a video tutorial for you to watch too so just CLICK HERE or on the image below. If nothing else, tune in to see what a mess I make of using our new Seal adhesive!!

And let me know if you need the scoring measurements in Imperial - I haven't worked them out yet but I can if anybody needs them!
