Halloween Tea Lights

on September 21, 2012

Pressed for time during the holidays but still want something fun and festive? Try making these five minute tea lights.

Here’s how you put it together:
Cut one strip of vellum card stock at 4″ x 8″
Cut two strips of vellum card stock at 3″ x 8″
Use the Scallop Edge Punch on one side
Use the embossing buddy before stamping your image with Versamark
Heat set (since I was using vellum I used the heat gun under the image)
Add sticky strip to one side and attach the ends
Add your tea light

Tip: To hide the seam, try stamping your image about 1/3 from the edge instead of stamping directly in the center. This way your seam is off on the side and not in the back directly behind the image like mine.

Supplies are all Stampin’ Up except tea lights

Stamp Set: Toxic Treats
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Vellum Card Stock
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Embossing Buddy, Black Embossing Powder, Sticky Strip Tape, Tea Lights (battery operated)

Wouldn’t these look great with Christmas images, such as snowflakes, or for a little ambience stamp hearts for Valentine’s Day, Anniversary, etc., it’s endless.

    Thanks Leah, since you requested we’ll do these along with the candy bar slider for your 3-D items. Neither take very long to make. See you Thursday.
