Heartwarming Poinsettia Decorated Candle Gift Box - Share it on a Sunday

 Hi Everyone,

It's Share it on a Sunday and this week Donna chose the theme 'monochrome' (one of her favourites haha) and so I am using red (as it's Christmas) with a touch of silver foil to make it pop.  My box is made from a mini paper pumpkin box which I have decorated with Heartwarming Hugs and the Poinsettia dies and some red velvet paper. This box holds six floating candles (same size as tea lights) but could equally hold any other treats or chocolates, whatever you want.  Let me show you how I made it and don't forget to check out the links below and see what Donna and Victoria have made.


1 mini paper pumpkin box
DSP - Heartwarming Hugs - 1 x 5 3/8" x 3 5/8" for the top, 2 x 3/4" x 5 3/8", 2 x 3/4" x 3 1/2" for the sides
Scrap of whisper white for the sentiment
Scraps of silver foil for the leaves and berry twigs
Scraps of red velvet paper for the flower
Basic rhinestones
Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set
Real red ink
Poinsettia dies
Stitched so sweetly dies
Stampin cut and emboss machine
Multipurpose adhesive
Mini dimensionals
Bone folder


Fold all the score lines on the mini paper pumpkin box and fix it together, it just folds up and there are tabs on the side that slot into the base.

Adhere the dsp layers to the top and the sides of the box.

Die cut the petals from the red velvet paper and the leaves and the berry twigs from the silver foil.

Curl the petals on the flower with the bone folder to give them some dimension and then layer them together (I've used dimensionals but you could use glue or glue dots as well).  Add a mini dimensional to the base of each leaf and then stick them to the back of your flower.  Add dimensionals to the back of the flower and the leaves and then fix the flower in place on the top of the box. Add glue to the berry twigs and tuck them under the petals.

Stamp a sentiment on the scrap of whisper white and then die cut using the Stitched So sweetly dies (my favourites), add to the top of the box with dimensionals.

Add a cluster of rhinestones to the centre of the flower.

Fill your box and there you go, great gift for someone special.
