Candle Box

 I made my daughter in law a box for Christmas this year using black chipboard and the papers from Graphic 45 French Country Collection.  I love the rich colors and the vintage home grown aspect of the paper.  My daughter in law loves sunflowers and chickens and I think this paper works for the two of us.  The box is 4"x4"x8" and the sides are split down about 2/3 of the way all the way around.  I covered all surfaces with the various papers from the collection and added chip board bits and ribbon from Stampin UP!

 Opened the box contained a candle that had leaf imprints circling it.  I  really like the way this box turned out and may end making a few more for gifts during the year.  While they look like they take a lot of work it can be done in a couple of hours. 

 The lid is some flower bits I had from other projects that I glued together into a sunflower ornament on the top of the box.

Another view of the back side of the box.  All sides were covered but these were two of my favorite. 


  1. Wow, this is fabulous. What an awesome gift! Happy New Year xxx

  2. Just had to stop and say I absolutely LOVE this box - it's fabulous - the paper you used is so beautiful, and the sunflower on top is just perfect - what a gorgeous gift!

  3. Wow, I love this! lovely box with some gorgeous papers! I always envy people that can do "precision" crating. It looks so well-made and sturdy. Thank you for commenting on my blog earlier! Wishing you a wonderful New Year!

  4. Thank you for your kind comments about my ATC pocket letter Vickie. =) I really like your G45 box, aren't their papers fabulous! =)

  5. Thanks for last weeks visit. I LOVE THIS project. I have that paper pack and I have a little 8yr old that loves chickens. I think I'll use the inspiration and make her a box I saved for her little treasures. Happy New Year to you and yours. Thought of you when the water and storms hit that area of the country. Have a wonderful New Year
