I started with a box from the Dollar Giant (a whole dollar per box). This is the lid. I basically left it alone because the thickness of paper would not have allowed me to cover both the box and lid, Lucky for me the cranberry color on the top goes along with her color theme. I tried out Lauren's Scallop Blossom idea and completely LOVE it! The sentiment in the middle is from the Favor it Weddings set (PTI).
Here is the lined box. I used Vintage Cream Card stock and covered the box first (to make sure it was actually going to work) Once that was done, I stamped the gerb from Floral Frenzy around the outside in alternating colors. I would have used the PTI colors but I had to do the colors to match what I used on her invitations. Anyway, I then wrapped some divine Dark Chocolate Satin Ribbon around the box and made the inside inserts to match.
Next I was in Michael's and had found by accident these cute little metal leaf shaped candle plates and HAD to get them (given the whole fall theme). I used the Tutorial on SCS to stamp on the candles and it turned out great. At the last minute I decided to add their names and date of wedding to the center candle. She liked these so much that they are going on the head table for the wedding. Yeah!
A little close up view for you! I have to say...MAN those PTI Simple Alphabet stamps are so teeny tiny but come in so handy for things like this!!!
...Finally, this is what I did to wrap the candles. See that fabulous ORANGE ribbon.....do you see it CHAR? Yes it is THAT ribbon. the one you love so much from Michael's and i have to agree it IS really nice, even if it is orange!
Well Thanks for reading along with me for so long, but I at least hope you enjoyed reading or viewing. I will be submitting this to the October GSS at Papertery Ink since it has been a while since I did anything for those special folks!!
