Treat Box & Card Combo with Bliss
This is what I demonstrated at my Inspiration Station. It is a treat box on one side with a pocket on the opposite side to insert a greeting card.
This picture shows that the Designer Lable punch stamped with the word "Bliss" has been inked round the edges and attached with dimensionals to the pocket on the bottom left. The brocade motif was stamped directly onto Pretty in Pink DSP from the Subtles Paper stack and the largest size pearl was adhered to its centre.
I then stamped the exposed part of the pocket with the butterfly and flower image in the same ink to create a "watermark".
An aperture was created in the box part with the modern label punch and the "bird" image was stamped on the box part.
I punched 2 x 1" circles in Pretty in Pink, folded them in half for the closures on the boxes.
The tealites were a first for me. I'd procrastinated for a long time - hot wax and me don't mix! It was a cinch to do though, Amanda demoed it at one of her team training sessions, and I eventually plucked up the courage to have a go. Just fold up some tissue paper concertina like, sandwich in between some copy paper and punch. Fold the wad of circles while still stacked into quarters, snip the corner to create a hole. Stamp on each circle, thread it through the wick on your tea lite, apply gentle heat with heat tool and the molten wax will adhere the tissue and embed it into the tea lite as pictured above.
