Autumn Spice Tea Lights and Box

I'm tweeking this post a little. I created it at about 2:00 am a few nights ago, trying to get 11 posts scheduled and I must have been getting sleepy! I forgot to put this photo first, or at all for that matter :rolleyes:



We will be making this for club on Thursday. This has a very Thanksgiving/harvest feel to it to me. And we will be using the Early Espresso Waffle paper to make the bow. I really love the look of the Pearl Basic Jewel accenting the center of the bow! We will be using a Double Rock and Roll technique on this project. Lots of cleaning between stamping, but I think the effect is worth it  :-)

We will be adding a little dazzle to the candles by sponging some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint onto the tissue paper before applying to the candles, because a little dazzle is a good thing  :-)  More stamping inside the boxes too. I hope I remember to bring some of my sentiment stamps so you all can add something inside the box if you want.
  • Stamps: Day of Gratitude
  • Paper: More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Naturals Ivory, Autumn Spice Specialty DSP, Waffle paper
  • Ink: More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
  • Other: 1-3/8" Circle punch, 1/16" punch, paper cutter with scoring blade, heat gun, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, sponge, Stampin' Dimensonals, Pearl Basic Jewels
And the tutorial for this project is available here
In case you haven't seen it yet, lol!
