I've been a little M.I.A. the past week getting ready for my daughter-in-law's baby shower. These are the little tea light favors I made for the guests. I used the retired Bitty Box die to create the box and added an insert to hold the tea light. Here are the measurements and punches used...
For the Insert:
- Cut Night of Navy Card Stock - 3 3/8" x 2 3/8" score at 1/2" & 2 7/8".
- Punch 1 3/4" Circle in the center of the insert.
- Fold along score lines and adhere to inside of the box with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
For the Sail Boat:
- Punch a half circle from Night of Navy card stock using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch to create the boat.
- Cut rectangles from Whisper White card stock - 7/8" x 1 1/8" for the large sail & 1" x 11/16" for the small sail. Then cut each rectangle in half diagonally (you'll get two sails from each rectangle).
- Cut a strip of Real Red card stock 3/16" wide and flag the end using the 1" Square Punch. After flagging, cut to approximately 3/8" long.
- Punch Real Red card stock using the Hearts Border Punch.
- I added a little accent stripe onto the boat (approximately 1/16" wide) using Liquid Glue.
- All of the punched & cut pieces were adhered with Dimensionals.
The verse was typed & printed onto Whisper White card stock and punched with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch, then layered onto a 2" Real Red punched circle and added to the inside of the box lid with SNAIL Adhesive.
Except for the sailboats (which were a little more time-consuming) this was very easy to put together. Using the Fast Fuse Adhesive definitely is a time saver over using the Sticky Strip, and it held really well!
Here is the wording I used...
Here is a candle for you to light
once Lil’ (name) has arrived.
With the flicker of this flame,
please say a prayer in baby’s name.
It was a busy week making favors, decorations, prepping food, and sewing some darling baby blankets for my very first grandchild, but I'm having so much fun and getting super excited to meet this little guy : )
I had to share this picture of one of the tables, because you would not even believe how long it took me to make these paper boats I found on Pinterest...3 HOURS to figure out and make two of them!! Good grief, sometimes I'm stunned at how challenged I can be ; ) But, after all that, I think they made cute & inexpensive centerpieces for each of the tables : )
