Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I am sharing with you some absolutely adorable tea light holders using the Time of Giving bundle. Actually I only used the dies which are called Giving Gifts Dies. I am not going to write out the instructions because I shared those with my private Prime Time group. You are most welcome to join this group as well. It is only $10 a month and you get exclusive weekly video tutorials as well as a monthly pdf which is worth $15-20. The link to do that is here.

Let’s take a look at these adorable, easy to make tea light holders.


Tea Light Holders


I got the idea for these tea light holders from UK demonstrator Claire Ottaway. Her measurements are using A4 cardstock but at least you will get the idea of how it all works. If you choose to use 12 x 12 paper then you will be fine.


Time of Giving Tea Light Holders


You can buy battery operated tea lights at the dollar store and with the vellum inserts, the glow is just beautiful. My best tip: be sure to add your vellum inserts BEFORE you put the holder together. It’s really tricky to do afterwards, trust me. The problem is that you get so excited that you want to put it together and then you realize after that you forgot the vellum. You really DO need the vellum though, it makes for a really nice glow. Good luck!

Here is the video from Claire. Thanks Claire for the fabulous inspiration.

I originally bought this bundle because of the die with the Santa and his reindeer. Take a look at Cindy Brumbaugh’s lovely card. I don’t have time to case it today, so I thought I would just share her card and her blog address so she gets more traffic to her blog as well. Thanks so much Cindy for your lovely card idea.
