Isn’t this fun? You want one don’t you?
It’s time for a tutorial for you.
Start with a piece of Pumpkin Pie C.S. cut to 8 1/8″ x 4 1/4″
Score on long side 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″
Score on Short side 2″
You will need the Detailed Floral Thinlits to cut out the stencil.
When placing-keep it closer to the center.
Run it through the Big Shot. Now, use this great tool-the die brush, and run that over the die several times.
Pull off die and most if not all the pieces should be easy to dump off.
Ta Da! Perfect. Now-do the other side same way.
Place it closer toward the middle, almost butting up to the side you already did.
Repeat and you should have this.
Now, fold over on all score lines.
Trim off the little thin strip up to the score line. You want to only keep the top half.
Now cut up to the middle on the score lines:
Add a strip of “Green “glue-Multi-purpose glue on that tiny strip.
Fold your box in half and glue together.
After a few moments, add tape to three inside flaps:
Place the one flap without tape into the box first:
Now place other flaps on top.
Flip over, add decoration. In this case I added a pumpkin using our oval dies and sponging color all over. Love making these.
Because this is paper-I will add a disclosure that you should not use a real candle but rather an artificial tea light.
Now you have the perfect little Autumn Luminaire.
You can make these for Weddings, etc. just by changing the color of the card stock.
These are the supplies I used:
