For my stamp club project we are creating a Candle-to-go, Book Marker and a Tea Bag Holder.
To make the candle you will need 3 tea light candles removed from their casing and gently remove the wicks. Using an empty wiped out Altoid tin place two tea light candles in side the tin and put in the oven on 275 ish. It should take about 15 minutes +/- to melt. Just keep an eye on it. Once it is melted gently take it out of the oven and let sit for about 5 minutes. You will then need to place the wick in the middle. Take the third tea light and chop it up in chunks. Once the tin is cooled and the wax is set decorate.
To make the bookmark I used a 1 1/2 inch by 8 1/2 inch piece of card stock. Folded in half and layered more CS and DP on top and decorate who you see fit. I saw this here. I added some magnet on the inside bottom of the bookmark so when you book mark your page is will hold shut. I used Magnetic Tape.
For the tea holder you will need to cut your card stock at 3 1/4" by 9 3/4". Score 3 1/4" from each end. On the inside you will need to cut at a diagnal and fold in to create the pocket for the tea bag.
This is a repost for the 365 Card Challenge. My submission is the bookmark.
