Thankful Hostess Gift

For Thanksgiving I always bring the hosting family member something. Even if you have that special co-worker you just want to say Thanks to here's a quick and cost efficient gift. This little box holds 4 tea lights.
Cardstock used was Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Pear Pizzaz, Very Vanilla. Designer Paper used was Autumn Spice,and the Stamp Set was Falling Leaves.Inks used Cajun Craze, Cho Chip, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie. Ribbon was Certain Celery and More Mustard. Scallop Circle punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, and 1" Circle Punch. Box base is 4.5x4.5 score 3/4 inch around box. I used tacky tape to hold together. Box wrap is 3 1/8 x 9. score at 2,2 3/4,5 7/8,6 5/8. Wrap around box and tape with tacky tape AFTER your candles are in the box to insure perfect fit. For tea lights cut a 3 x 6 piece of copy paper and place 4 sheets of tissue paper sandwiched(This helps to punch the tissue) Punch a 1/8 hole in the center then punch a 1/14 inch circle centering the smaller punch. Stamp on your tissue stand wick up on candle and thread onto tealight. using an embossing gun heat the surface until the wax melts, this goes fairly quick. Wait for them to cool put in box wrap with ribbon and add tag. Thanks for stopping
