Altered Tealight Challenge

Good morning & welcome to my first post as a member of Becky's Sweet Creations DT!! I am so excited to be a part of this new DT! This is a brand new DT & I wish Becky (and all of us!!) nothing but the best luck in our time together! :)

Our first challenge was to alter a tealight...Becky saw a video on YouTube & thought it would be great challenge for all of us! I have altered tealights before so I knew I would LOVE this challenge! But this time, I used my Cricut to make my box!

I just love how these turn out!! Such a small package but you get a HUGE reaction when you give it to someone as a gift!!

I cut my box on Tags, Bags, Boxes & More at 6.5" (BTW, I had NO clue what size to cut this box at!! I started with a 6" box & just went up from there!) . The mats are 1 3/4" square & 1 1/2" square.
The tealight base is covered with a 3/4"  x 5 1/4" strip and scallop circle punch from Stampin Up is on the top. I covered it with pearls & flowers to finish it off!

Glad you stopped by & hope this will "challenge" you to make an altered tealight for yourself! Go check out Becky's Sweet Creations for more wonderful projects!!

Until next time...
♥ Laura ♥

Wow Laura this is so cute! I don't know if I could work on such a small item, but you sure did! and it's beautiful:) The box is cool too. I have TBBM on my gypsy, but I can't use it at all. I need a booklet and I have no idea where to get one. You did a wonderful job on this tea lite. Hugs, Pam at
