LARGE TEALIGHT FOR THE HOLIDAYS!

Stamping on tealights is all the rage right now, and they are all so lovely. I had a package of large tealights hanging around, so I decided to give it a try. The tealights I used came two in a package, and they measure approximately 2 1/2". I actually stamped my image from the Scenic Season stamp set and punched it with my 2 1/2" circle punch. I had to trim just a teensy bit off.

Here's a picture of the tealight all stamped and "purdy" (as my Grandma used to say).


I wanted to give my tealights a bit more pizzazz, so I added a little "dazzle". I had some metal sheets that I purchased from Monica Weaver. If you haven't seen and/or used her metal sheets, you definitely need to check them out. You can visit here blog HERE to see the great stuff she does! I just ran my metal sheet through my Big Shot useing my Square Lattice Die Embossing Folder; then I taped it onto the side of the tin my tealight was in. Here's what it looks like from the side.


And this last photo is of it all packaged up nice and ready for gift giving. I carefully opened the package when I removed the tealights, so that I would be able to put them right back in their little plastic bag. I added a piece of Garden Green cardstock to the back and some Real Red cardstock to the top and stapled the package back together. Then I stamped an image from the Stampin' Up! Gifted stamp set and mounted it onto my Real Red cardstock so that it would cover my staple. The good thing about re-packaging the candles is that all the original warnings, etc... are still on the back!



This was really quick and easy, and I can tell I will be making more! Now all I need to do is remember where I originally purchased these tealights LOL!
