Tealight


I'm in charge of posting the new challenge on Everybody Art so I schedule that but forgot to do mine.

Making a tealight isn't my thing, I make cards or scrapbook, but a lightbulb moment said why not use the Stamping Up die. The biggest problem with that I needed two to be exactly the same.

To make sure I cut two bits of card, first off tried cutting two together, trust me it didn't work no matter how many times I ran it through the bigshot. The next step was to score two lines to create right angle and then I placed the die in the corner and repeat on the second this worked out make better.

I added the vellum before scoring down the centre then using thin red tape stuck together. I have to say I cheated there is no bottom, I place the tealight cover over the top but I do advise to buy battery ones I wouldn't trust leaving it over a real candle.
