Christmas Gifts

I have been trying to get a jump on homemade Christmas gifts this week. 

These little cardstock weight votive candle holders are done in three

different sizes and will package as a set of three. 

I used the star border punch across the top. The

snowflake was embossed with white embossing powder. 

I lucked out with the sliver ribbon. Found it in my ribbon stash. 

It is a really narrow silver sparkle ribbon that also was wired so 

it made it really easy to make nice fitting corners around the candle. 

Now I just have to go pick up all the flame-less candles to go in them. 

Close up view of the smallest size.

To make the three different sizes cut the velum cardstock:

4 1/2 x 8 1/2
5 1/2 x 8 1/2
6 1/2 x 8 1/2

Score each of the sizes at: 2, 4, 6, and 8 inches

Turn the velum 90 degrees and score the bottom at 2 inches.

When scoring use the large end of the scoring tool so the velum won't tear.

4 1/2" x 8 1/2"
5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
6 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Next, in each case, score at 2", 4", 6", and 8"; then turn the piece degrees and score again down the length at 2".  This will form your bottom flaps.
