a little gift

   I live by a Yankee Candle Flagship store.   Every now and then they have an amazing sale and this week is one with 75% off.
 I grabbed a bag full of votive candles to give as gifts. 
I made this box to put it in.  It just fits and is a pop out.
It's perfect.
I used light blue card stock to make the base and patterned paper from Recollections in shades of blue, white and a bit of gold  to enhance.
A glitter star cut from blue glitter designer paper with my machine (using the Accent Essentials cartridge) sits on top and then tied in a pretty pale blue bow.


I would like to add this to the following challenges if I may:

Through the Craftroom Door: ATG
Make My Monday: Blue and White
Simon Says:  Winter Blues
Simon Says:  Use Patterned Paper
The House that Stamps Built: Tic/Tac/Toe Snowflake, Blue, Glitter.
Bitten By the Bug 2:  Snowy and Cold.
Crafty hazelnut Patterned Paper Challenge
Card Mania: Monochrome
Casual Fridays: All that glitters.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek ...
Have an amazing day.


Thanks so very much Bitten By the Bug !!
