This week, Pat made these amazing fall tealight candles! We thought that they were so fabulous, we wanted to share how to make them with you!!



We have the directions written out for you and in a video as well!!!!

To make the bottom of the box: 3 3/4 x 8 1/4 piece of cardstock, the longest score lines are at 1/2", 1-1/8", 2-5/8", & 3 - 1/4"    Your short score lines are at 1/2". 1-1/8", 7-1/8", & 7-3/4"

To make the box cover: 5x6" piece of cardstock
Score lines on the 6" side will be 5/8", 2-1/4", 2-7/8" & 4-1/2"

Decorate top as desired.

Punch out 4 circles from the tissue paper with 1-3/8" punch. Punch a little hole in the center of the tissue paper for the wick to come through. Stamp each tissue circle with your image, heat with heat gun & melt the tissue paper into the wax.

Pat found this tutorial on tinkerin-in-ink blog. The video was long so she split it up into 2.
