So, I had this idea floating around in mind before Thanksgiving and had to give it a try, before we took off for the desert. I just didn't have time to post it with getting the trailer loaded and all. I used one of those twinkling, flameless tea lites, some vellum paper, a small candy cane stamp and some ribbon to make this little light. It only stands about 2 1/2 inches tall, that is what I cut the vellum at and about 5 inches long, just long enough to wrap the lite and glue the edges. The tea lite is about 3/4 inch tall, so I marked the vellum before I stamped the candy cane, so they would show when I turned the tea lite on, I also trimmed the top with deco scissors. Around the base I added a bit of Christmas ribbon for when the lite is off. The stamp is from Stamping Up. I tried many versions before I got one to turn out the way I had it pictured in my mind. I tried taller, about 3 1/2 inches but the tea lite wasn't strong enough to lite it all the way to the top.
So this my first holiday project, guess I should get busy on some Christmas cards, I have been blog hoping before I posted and everyone is creating some gorgous cards and decorations, You are all just the "Bomb" as my 5 yr old granddaughter would say.........LOL
Thanks for stopping by.
