Christmas Tree Tea Light





I am so excited to be hosting a Winter/Christmas themed Blog Hop today! Nineteen other creative crafters have a winter or Christmas themed project {some blogs have both} created for you! So sit back, relax and start hopping!

My first project for the hop is a Christmas Tree Tea Light Holder {you know I love those little battery operated tea lights}!  Today's post will have the photos and there will be a tutorial and cut file added in a day or two. Sorry I didn't have time to get it ready with all my prep for the South Carolina Circle Meet Up.

I used CCR and the George cart to create a four-sided triangle box. Then I layered on each side, the swirly tree from the Christmas Solutions cart.  Glued the tree to a scalloped square from Mini Monograms that I had added a circle cutout in the center. Glued that to the shirt box, that also has a circle cutout, from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more. And added a star from George.


I used the shirt box not only for the base, but also for access to a battery operated tea light!

Once the tea light is turned on, close the box and you have a beautiful, glowing decoration or gift!


The other project I have today is a cute little gingerbread man, ready for winter! The gingerbread man is from Paper Doll Dress Up, his hat is from Everyday Paper Dolls and his scarf is from Winter Woodland.


But, there's not just one. . .they are 50 of him! This is only half of the group.I made these for a tag swap. I do still need to add the ribbon hanger.


Blog Candy!!!

  62. Hi Ronnie! Inside that 2 liter bottle are some Cricut markers, blades, a couple of Cuttlebug folders, a little notebook and paper clips with the bughead and a Solutions cart! And a bunch of pink crinkled paper. I was amazed at how much would go in there! Here is where I first posted directions (I should probably put them on my blog!)

  64. Just found your Christmas Tree Tea Light. LOVE it!!! Haven't been able to find the instructions or tutorial. Did you post them or have they been removed (or have I just not looked in the correct place)?
    Thanks for your help. Would love to make one of them as well as several other things you have posted. Love your blog!
