As all my candles for Christmas are in the loft, and I don't do rubber stamps, I decided to make a paper candle, but how to present it??
I had a mooch round google images, and saw some very fiddley Lantern Boxes, which obviously you would have to buy templates for. Now, I'm a bit skint at the moment, don't know about you guys, so I opted to faff about for ages making my own without a template, BOY did THAT get complicated! - Almost lost the will to live there for a minute!
But it came together in the end. I used gold glitter card for the Lantern, with Acetate for the windows, then decorated it with Pebeo Touch dimensional paint dotted round the edges. At the top I put a peel-off corner. The Poinsettia flowers are Quickutz Die shapes with extra punched shapes in the middle. The holly was also a Quickutz shape, and the dainty leaves is a punch I got from my local Craft Shop.
Here is a close up:
