Candle and Candle Box Ensemble with Eileen Hull Inspiration

 It's time for a brand new challenge with Eileen Hull's Art with Heart Challenge and July's theme is "Make it 3D", so make sure to come and join us....HERE!!!
 I began by taking Eileen Hull/Sizzix Make It 3-D Box Die and cutting out four of the box dies. Two pieces of mat board to  measure approximately 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" and two pieces of mat board to measure approximately 2" x 3. (Refer to photo to see where to cut flaps off) HINT: When I am placing paper on my altered pieces I staple the flaps with my tiny attacher.
 I taped the bottoms of my box with some tape, just to hold it into place. Cut four 1" by 4 1/2 mat board strips and glue to the inside walls of box to add support. Cut a piece of mat board to glue to the bottom.  Cut and adhere pattern paper to sides and bottom.
 Die cut 8 of the Lace Doily Medallion using mat board and 16 of DCWV Chick Chat Stack pattern paper. I used my Xyron 9" Permanent Adhesive and the  Xyron Creative Station to apply the adhesive to my pattern paper and placed them on the front and back of the Lace Doily Medallion pieces.
 Take 4 of the covered Lace Doily Medallion pieces and cut in half. Adhere to corner of prepared box using Glossy Accent. (You could use a hot glue gun or different glue)
 Once the glue has set on the sides Lace Medallion Doily...place the four solid prepared pattern paper Lace Medallion Doily to the each side to form box.
I used Glossy Accent and place two pieces of WeR Memory Keeper Teal Twine on the sides of my box along with a bow on each side. Punch circle sentiments from the DCWV Chick Chat Stack and place one on each side of box. Cut 4 of each of the Flower Layer with Heart Petals and form into flowers, add enamel dots to the center of each.
 Place two to the front of box.
Change the Xyron 9" Permanent Adhesive Refill to the Xyron 5" Permanent Adhesive Refill, run the two circles, banner strip and sentiment journal block through the XyronCreative Station.
Add to circles to the top of candle and one of the flowers to the top of the candle jar.
 Wrap candle with a piece of the burlap from the DCWV Chick Chat Stack, add a journal piece, and wrap a few times with the We R Memory Keepers Twine and tie into a bow.
Well I hope you enjoyed my Candle and Candle Box Ensemble using the Sizzix Make It 3-D Box and Sizzix Lace Medallion Doily and check them out in the Sizzix store HERE!!! Make sure to join us for the Art with Heart Challenge this month, we would love to see all your fabulous creations. Hugs Pammejo
