Tea Light Candle Holders

Hi fellow crafters. Its Monday morning here and I must admit its a little hard to get moving or even poke my nose out the front door.!  Yes it appears to be raining again and lots of it! Plenty of time to do more crafting.  This is a good thing as I like to have a big variety at the Handmade Market Expo in Morayfield this Sunday. If it hasnt rained too much it should be a good day especially with it all being indoors the weather will not hurt us at all unless its too much rain.

There has been a lot of rain recently and with rain and humidity and warmth, its perfect for mosquitoes. I have the tea light candles with the citronella in them and they are amazingly like a lot of our gorgeous colours:

I like to have my candles as visible as possible so therefore I have made some holders for them. I made them using Aluminium in the Big Shot using the Flower Folds Bigz Die. The smaller of the 2 flowers has then been run through my Petals Aplenty Embossing Folder. Here is another:

Tealight Candle Holder - Daffodil Delight

This one is Daffodil Delight or close to it (no I didnt colour them myself) in the bottom right hand corner you can see Pretty in Pink candle. Here is another:

Tealight Candle Holder - Riding Hood Red

Here is one that is similar in colour to Riding Hood Red. And a group shot ready to go for the Market this weekend. I hope they go a treat.

I love the way when the die cuts the aluminium that it neatly rolls the edges, therefore there is no risk to cutting fingers. Once that candle is finished, its just simple to put another in the centre.

Thank you once again for stopping by and looking at my blog.

take care

Flowers and Butterflies

Hi there and thank you for stopping by. Happy Mother’s Day to you all.

I have a very early start this morning as I going to do the markets at the Bongaree Jetty this mornng. Just thought I would show you a couple of things that will be on my stall. First of all the Chupa Chup Flowers, these are very popular and a great way to use up that stash of card stock and printed papers.

Flower Box

These flowers are made with the new Blossom Punch with the petals cut and also the Flower Folds Bigz Die for the Big Shot. I think they look awesome and they are very popular at the markets.

Now onto something completely new for my stall this week.

Butterfly Lip Balm Holder – Pool Party

These I made using the Beautiful Butterflies Die and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die. It has been really lucky that Avon has had specials on their lip balms the last couple of campaigns and that they coordinate so well with our cardstock and this is also another way to get rid of the off cuts or left over card stock. Here is another:

Butterfly Lip Balm Holder – Real Red

Just another one close up to show you and a few together in the next picture.

I sure hope they do well at the markets.

Thats it for now. I hope you all have a great Mother’s Day.
