Votive Gift Box Set

First off I need to say THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by out website and downloaded the free popcorn box template. I honestly can't believe how many "orders" for it we had and I can't wait to see some of your creations (hint-hint.... link them back here please!!!)


This project was inspired by the MFT Who's that girl challenge posted each week by my friends Laura & Toni over in the MFT Forum on Splitcoast. This week's challenge was the Going Places stamp set (or any WTG set) and eyelets.
Since my girl is going to Hawaii I decided to make her a little bon voyage gift with a tropical theme. The little box was made with Scenic Route paper and folded to hold 6 votive candles
The card was made with the MFT "Going Places" stamp set and scraps of the Scenic Route paper left over from the box.
The box uses 1 sheet of 12x12 paper and has enough scraps left over to make a coordinating card. I really like how this one happened to match up perfectly with the surf board on the front... I'd like to say I planned it that way but I'll admit that I didn't!

I designed the box to fit 6 votive candles (these are Partylite). I love how it looks with double sided paper!


BLOG CANDY ALERT!! - I have a package of 6x6 paper from Imaginsce along with some coordinating ribbons and Merry Christmas rub-ons to give away to a random comment left on this post. Take a minute and let me know what you think of this box and if you'd like to see a template of it in our store.

Thanks for reading!


UPDATE!! I just loaded the template for the votive candle box in the store HERE. Here's the deal.... we have the template along for sale for .99 - not a bad deal for the instructions on how to make this box. BUT there is a coupon code available so you can get it for FREE with any other purchase. The coupon code is "template" and it will give you .99 off your order. I know.... we'd all like it for free and I would love to give it to you for free! But it is a webstore after all and I would like to sell some cool products as well. We have more stuff on order right now which should be here shortly, and quite a few products that are almost sold out.... so all the items that have either one or two left are now 15% off. Sound good?

It is so useful for many occasions and designs. Thanks for all you do and the time you spend so we can enjoy projects and be inspired. God will bless you! Linda Crowder
