Autumn Tea Light Book Boxes with cutting file

I made 27 of these boxes for my mother’s missionary prayer group this past weekend!  I kept them simple since I had to make so many of them.  They are decorated with different autumn color papers and Cheery Lynn die-cut butterflies painted with muted Pan Pastel colors to match the papers.  The boxes are all slightly different but here are a few.  I filled the boxes with pumpkin spice and cinnamon spice scented tea lights. I’ve made these boxes before and think they make wonderful little gifts.  Here is the WPC cutting file for this project.  The base book box measures 12″ x 6.75″ to allow for a decorative around-the-page punch and the completed book measures about 5.25″ x 6.75″ size. I added a sheet of clear acrylic over the oval inside the box to hold the tea lights in place.  Here is a link for a manual template and inspiration for this project.









Swan Tag

This tag was made featuring the intricate Cheery Lynn Design swan die.  The pale soft pink papers are Pion Design and the metal frame is a Tim Holtz product.










Christmas Distressed Tag


I really love Tim Holtz products as they provide a distressed vintage “grunge” look.   Here are the products used for this Christmas tag.
