Treat box card/Tealight candle card

Morning all!  I have a little tutorial for you today for a really easy make especially if you're looking to make a lot in a short time.  With Christmas fast approaching these are a lovely little gift you can make plenty of in a short time.  There are further ideas at the bottom to customise it for your taste but as I'm making a lot of these for charity I simplified it :)


You will need:


1 piece of card 9" by 4"  (approx 228mm by 101mm)

1 piece of card 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" (Approx 140mm by 140mm)
1 piece decorated card just under 3" by 3" (approx 73mm by 73mm)
4 glue dots
Glue Stick
Papers to decorate



STEP 1 - Take your piece of 9"x4" card and score it at 4" and 5"  on the inside then score your 5 1/2" x 5 1/2 card and score it on the back around each edge at 1/2" and 1 1/4"




STEP 2 - After you've scored your square card you will see little squares formed, trim these as shown (NB see pic for red cut line)


STEP 3 - Fold in your box as shown below and secure the flaps with a glue dot - I have tried numerous glues and they dont work very well so a simple glue dot will hold it nicely.
Trim the opening of the box by snipping the corners.




STEP 4 - Decorate as desired then on the bottom of the box use a glue stick along the flaps and glue this onto your card base.  Take the small piece of decorated card (Slightly smaller than 3"x3") and glue the back, slide this into the bottom of the box and secure.


STEP 5 - Fill your box with goodies!  I have used scented ikea candles which fit nicely.


And this is the front using part of the new ANGEL RAYS digi





FURTHER IDEAS!

You can make your card base larger if you wish, simply readjust the measurements.  I make them 4 x 4" as you can get 2 card bases out of 1 sheet of A4 at that size

Add a layer of acetate on the inside of the box if you wish to fill with items that might fall out

Don't cut a hole in the top and decorate the top of the box so that it has a nice surprise inside

I also use ready decorated card, here I've used one I made with moonshadow ink as the boxes are quite fiddly to decorate with patterned paper and if you use patterned paper on the top before die cutting make sure your glue is completely dry or it may tear or slip!
You can use plain card for the box and simply spray with GLIMMER MIST for some sparkles.

I use 3" x 3" images on the fronts, this is very easy to do with digi stamps and you dont have to use the entire stamp (also saves time if you've lots to do!)

If you have lots to make do them together in stages so cut all your bases then score them all as it saves looking back repeatedly for measurements if youve the memory of a goldfish like I have!

Hope you like this and if you have lots to make for an event for example then I highly recommend them.  I think the Elizabeth Shaw mints fit as well (8)
