Gift bag tealight holder

The whole point of this project is that it contains a battery tealight, which illuminates the scene through the vellum. So why I failed to switch on the lights before taking the photo, I’ll never know. These were gifts for ladies in my yoga class and have now left the building, so you’ll just have to use your imagination, I’m afraid. 

They’re made using the Gift Bag Punch Board, which is actually almost as difficult to type as it is to say. Fortunately it’s easier to use and, to make this project you’ll need a sheet of A4 cardstock cut down to 11in x 6in, then you simply follow the instructions for making a MEDIUM bag.

Die-cut your window in one of the wider panels then create your scene using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits. The holes in the top were, in retrospect, a mistake, as it means you have to untie the bow every time you want to switch the light on or off, so you may want to skip that bit. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I make mistakes so you don’t have to!
