Amanda's wedding early next year so I thought I'd share an idea for
table lights with you.
Amanda's wedding colors are silver and purple. Here's how to make
these simple votive candle holders.
Silver metallic cardstock
Using your paper trimmer, cut ten 2" x 2" squares and
one 11" x 1/4" strip.
Arrange five squares in a cross pattern with a scant 1/16" between
each square as shown.
Tape the squares together making sure to maintain the 1/16" space
between each one.
Glue five more 2" squares on top of the taped ones to hide the tape.
Score the 11" strip at 2 1/4" inch intervals. Fold and glue to make
a shallow frame
measuring 2 1/4" on each side. Fold up the sides of the votive and
place inside the frame as shown.
The sides will lay open at an approximate 30 degree angle on each side.
Insert a candle in a glass holder.
Decorate the sides as you wish. I used my new alphabet stamps to add
monograms for Amanda and Max to each side.
