Pretty packaging blog hop


Hello. Thanks for popping in on the Pretty Packaging Blog Hop!
I'm first on the hop which is SO intimidating, let me tell you:)



I planned for this fun cupcake-turned candle box holder to really WOW but alas, Clever Paulina beat me to it by creating one here for the Denami Blog. *shucks*
And wasn't her photograph beautiful? 

For mine, I stamped the Cherry Blossom repeatedly on several sheets of cardstock and punched them out with a 1 inch circle punch and adhered them to the outside. After creating the base that goes inside from kraft CS, I wrapped it with brown grosgrain ribbon. The entire box was tied with red grosgrain and I added a tag to the top with some twine.

Denami Products used:
Thinking of you (cling)

This was really quite simple to make and took no time at all.
I plan on making several more in different colors (of course putting a NEW candle in each one instead of my partially burned one in this package for photographing purposes *grin*)

Your next stop on the hop is the talented Barb!
Be sure to leave comments at each stop for a chance at winning one of TWO $20 gift certificates to the Denami store!

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO

While we may have been on the same wave link creating a candle in this boutique box, our results are so different! I love the fun colored circles and the different ways you used ribbon on this project, Dana! You definitely gave this blog a kick start!
