DIY tealight holder scrapbooking


1. First of all we have to create the base of the card. So, from the thick cardboard, we have to cut a rectangle of 10¼ by 4¾. Score and fold at 4¾ and 5½.

2. To decorate the external, cut two squares of 45/8 by 45/8 and one rectangle of 5/8 by 45/8. Glue these pieces on the external of the card using the double-sided tape.

3. To decorate the internal, cut two squares of 45/8 by 45/8 and glue on the internal of the card.

4. At this point we have to create the tea light box and to do that I usually use the envelope punch board. So, cut a paper square of 6¼ by 6¼ and punch and score at 25/8 by 35/8. Assemble the box, insert the tealights and glue the box on the right side of the internal of the card. Before glueing the box on the card, please remember to leave the upper part of the box open to be able to take out the tealights.

5. The tealight holder card is almost ready. Now you have to decorate it with stamps, dies or decorative elements.
