In the August issue of Ett trykk/Norsk Stempelblad, I made a tutorial on how to make a tea-light card.
The brain behind the original tea-light card, is actually German, but we couldn't manage to find out who,
so I started out by drawing a new template with "wings" to close the "box" :)
You're welcome to try out my template and tutorial, but I'll appreciate if you'll link back to me, if you publish a tea-light card where you've used my kind of template!
Start by cutting out the template in a piece of cardstock that messures 22 x 30 cm. Cut and score as the template shows.
Punch/cut out panels in the shapes/sizes/papers you want for your card, stamp and ink.
Glue the panels in DP to the cardstock, and remember to cut out the stripe where the candles will show.
If you want the card to be held together with ribbon, you must cut a small opening where you want the ribbon, in the line where the "tea-light box" will be glued (you can take a closer look at where I've placed the cut further down).
Panels on the one side...
...and the other.
Fasten the images/texts, and fasten the ribbon on the backside, by gluing your perconal stamp over it.
When all the pieces are glued to the card, you can glue the "box" to the card, by adding glue on the left 1cm stripe of the cardstock (on the front side of it - this pic is showing the backside of the "box").
Now you can fill the card with tea-lights, and embellish it the way you like :)
Recipe for my tea-light card:
