Boxes For Tea Light

I made two boxes for the tea light.

The box with the lid off.

The lid.  I made half of the diamond shape on the lid so when I closed the lid I could still see the diamond.

Here is another one pink and white.

 This is the lid

I like the purple better.  I think the lid of the pink and white one looks funny may be I will take the triangles from the lid off.  What do you think?

You can find the mini rose tutorial here.  The flowers on the pink and white lid are just flower punches that I crunched them up and then stacked them together.

The boxes are 3 x 3 x 2.  So you would need 7 x 7 piece of card stock and score 2" all around.  Make four cut and glue the box together.

This is the measurement for the purple lid 5 1/8 x 5 1/8.  Score 1" all around.  Then make four cut. Decorate any way you like.

Hi Helen,

You never cease to delight me with your creativity... look at those roses - so beautiful...

I am not making any flowers these days - just been busy with my younger one.

Your boxes are beautiful. When I made the box for my tea light cake I did it all in one piece. I think I like the two pieces better.
