Tea Light Shine Bright

Something else a bit different from me today! I've been playing with the Beveled Windowpanes in the mini and wanted to make something other than a card. I got this idea off an American demo's blog but now I can't find the link. If I can find it I will add it in.

So here is my tea light holder:


I made it to go in my living room which is mainly duck egg blue and brown - close to Baja Breeze and Early Espresso luckily! I took the four largets Beveled Windowpanes from the set and added a little row of floral rub ons along the top line using the Planter Box rubs ons. Next a few self adhesive pearls for that pretty touch and to hold it all together, four bows tied using the gorgeous Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon. Here's another view:


I've used a battery operated tea light as wasn't sure about the windowpanes holding out to the heat of a real flame! Gave me an opportunity to decorate the candle too though with a punched circle of Early Espresso on the top and a strip of the blue floral paper from Springtime Vintage. Considering I didn't think I was a fan of the Springtime Vintage suite I do seem to be using it a lot and need to order more papers and ribbon now!

Hugs
