If you are a subscriber, Welcome back! Each month we will bring you projects to help inspire your creative side. Now let’s get to the fun!

Our blog hop today is to create anything but a card. I did not know what I wanted to design, but I did know I wanted to use the Celebrate Sunflowers. I have a flickering candle and felt that will work for a sunflower candle holder.

To create my candle holder, I started with a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock cut to 4″ x 4″ and scored 1″ on all sides. I then cut and mitered four of the corners. Next, I used multipurpose glue and glued the four corners to create the candle box holder.

Next, I stamped the sunflower in So Saffron onto a piece of vellum, then I die-cut it out. Next, I die-cut the sunflower outline and glued it to the vellum. I then die-cut the sunflower center in Early Espresso and glued it to the center. I did the same with the greenery in Garden Green Cardstock and glued it to the right side of the sunflower. I added some So Saffron ink behind the sunflower to help with the glow. Lastly, I added a bow from the Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon and adhered it with a mini glue dot to the front of the box.

Here is a picture showing the flickering candle behind the sunflower. Such a lovely glow with the light behind it. This would be lovely on a tiered tray. Order this set as soon as you can because Celebrate Sunflowers and Sunflower Dies are retiring along with So Saffron Cardstock, inks, and the ribbon.

Now let’s hop over to Candi Surian-Stamp with Candi and see what she has designed for us.
