Live For Today-Candle Box

Welcome to day three with our Guest Blogger, Lauren Meader. I just want to share that every JustRite product that Lauren has used so far is available on the JustRite WEB site and is listed under Best Sellers. These items are available now and will ship within 24 hours. Also, please note that these items will have a slight price increase September 1st and if you order now you will save 14%-25%.

OK by now you are seeing how much I LOVE gift sets! LOL!!! There is nothing better than a gift item that matches the card. One of the things I love about the small letter set is that you can create ANY sentiment or word combination you wish. I have had way too much fun doing that this week.
I decided that the sentiment would be my main focus today. So I created my sentiment-Count not the months, but the moments- using the small letter set . I punched out the circle, then also punched out the center of the sentiment creating an open ring. I took clear beading thread, and suspended my dual vellum butterfly in the center. Behind it I placed my co-coordinating patterned paper.

First my card....
I made my card using a scrap of the patterned paper along the side, then stamped some flowers & butterflies. Added my sentiment, and it was done.

Next my gift box....

I then created a simple little box from 2 covered chipboard coasters, and creating a lid to adhere on top to hold a simple candle in. The covered chipboard lid ties on with ribbon.

A very quick and simple gift idea for that special occasion.

Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".

That gift box is amazing Lauren! I love the design of it, and the ribbon running up the sides to tie on the lid is genius!
