Sunday Christmas/Holiday_Yankee candle box_#10_2016(Stampin up Starlight Thinlits Dies)

Hi :-)
Here is 10th project for "Christmas on every Sunday" series.
I will upload a blog post and YouTube process video on every Sunday 18:00 UK time,
Please come back to check it out!

Hi Hi!

I just love this Starlight Thinlits Dies set!
I always think a small Yankee Candle with a nice custom box is a perfect small gift for somebody, like someone's birthday you aren't really friend but only card isn't just enough. I think it would also be good for a wedding favour. Yankee candle's colours are so gorgeous and very easy to coordinate with Stampin' Up colours!

I want this box to have more room than just the actual candle so that there is enough space for big/fat fingers to get around....  :-) Because of this, though I had to make something to stop the candle from rattling around in the box. I chose the colours and the ribbon to be quite neutral.

I filmed a start to finish video, Anyone interested to see how I made this. You can watch it here or on YouTube Part1, Part2

Have fun!

2" x 2" - 2 pcs

2" x 5" - 2 pcs
Score: Long side - 1/4", 2-1/2", 4-3/4"

2-1/2" x 5 - 2 pcs
Score: Long side - 1/4", 2-1/2", 4-3/4"  // Short side - 1/4", 2-1/4

3-15/16" x 3-15/16"
Score: 1" each side

5-5/16" x 5-5/16" - 1 pcs
Score: Score 3/8", 1", 1-5/8" each side

Please note that I really want the box can hang on Christmas tree without falling off lid. So lid is just perfect size for this box.

I used stampin up card stock. But if you use other brand that any thinner or thicker cardstock than you need to adjust size.

3/8" + 5/8" + 5/8" + top side your box right to left  +5/8" + 5/8" + 3/8"  by 3/8" + 5/8" + 5/8" +  top side your box right to left +5/8" + 5/8" + 3/8"

Have a wonderful evening!
See you next Sunday 6PM!
Bye Bye for now :-)
