Holiday Candle Lights

Holiday Lights Box Wrapped

Heavy decorative paper was used to create this festive gift box.  A Scor It tool provides interesting texture lines (hard to see in the photo).

Inside neatly nested are four votive candles.

Holiday Lights Box INside

A template for any glass votive can be made by wrapping it with paper and trimming the edges to fit.  Then the template can be traced directly onto a sheet of O'So Sticky Tape.  All four votives are wrapped with O'So Sticky Tape and embellished using masking techniques.  Save the liners from the O'So Tape to use as release paper masks.  Always put the shiny side down when using release papers.  The other side of the liner is designed to be able to write and draw on and will not release if place onto O'So

Candy Candle

Candy Candle: Release paper from the O'So was hand cut into circles and swirls.  First, all the circles are placed shiny side down onto the exposed O'So and the whole votive rolled in Lettuce Translucent micro beads.  Then the circle masks are removed and the swirls put into place in the centers (shiny side down)/  Then White Opaque micro beads are sprinkled into each area.  Finally the swirl masks are removed and Red Opaque micro beads complete the candy centers.

Red Candy Candle

Red Candy Candle:  Decorative paper circles were punched and placed on the the exposed O'So Sticky Tape.  Then the votive rolled in Red Translucent micro beads.  The candy circles were added with foam tape for dimension.

Snowflake Candle

Snowflake Candle:  Snowflakes are punched from the release paper and placed shiny side down onto the exposed O'So Sticky Tape.  A 1/4" strip of liner is put around the top edge of the votive and the candle is rolled into Gold Opaque Micro Beads.  Then the 1/4" strip is removed and the exposed tape is dipped into Lettuce Translucent Micro Beads.  Lastly, the snowflake masks are removed and White Opaque micro beads are sprinkled onto the exposed tape.

holly candle

Holly Candle:  Holly and berries were hand drawn onto the liner from O'So Sticky Tape, cut out and placed shiny side down onto the exposed tape on the votive.  The candle was then rolled in clear Mini micro beads.  The holly masks were then removed and the leaves cut from the berries.  The berries were then put back, shiny side down.  The holly leaves were beaded with Lettuce Translucent micro beads and then the berries in Red Opaque micro beads.

Finish off the box with ribbons and a gift tag.

May your holidays be bright and sparkly!   Holiday Lights Lit
