Fancy Favor Christmas Luminaries

This is actually a project that I made for a Make and Take last year, but never got around to posting. It's amazing what you'll find when you start cleaning up your photo folders!

Stamps: Simple Snowflake, Jolliest Time of the Year
Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle punch, 1-3/4" Circle punch, Northern Flurries Die, Fancy Favor die, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Gold Brad, Vellum card stock, battery operated tea light, Two-Way Glue Pen, Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive

The other side is stamped with a snowman.

This was super easy to make. Just cut out the Cherry Cobbler card stock large enough to fit on the Fancy Favor die. Run the card stock through the Big Shot with the die to cut out the box. Stamp the card stock with the Simple Snowflake image in Basic Black ink to give it a background pattern. Use the 1-3/4" Circle punch to punch a hole in both of the large side panels of the box.

For the Old Olive frame punch a 1-3/4" Circle from Old Olive card stock. Then line up the 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle punch so that the 1-3/4" circle hole is in the center, then punch. This will create your frame. You will need two of these. Adhere the frame onto the outside of the box with Two-Way Glue Pen. Next stamp the tree and snowman image onto a piece of Vellum card stock. Punch out the tree and the snowman with the 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle punch. Adhere these onto the inside of the box with Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive.

Next run a piece of card stock through the Big Shot on the Northern Flurries die. Pick out two snowflakes and pierce a hole through the center of each snowflake with the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack. Then use the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack to pierce a hole in the side of your box next to the "window frame" where you want your snowflakes. Use a gold brad to attach the two snowflakes onto the box.

Fold on all of the score lines, add sticky strip to the side flap and one of the bottom flaps. Form the box by adhere the sides together first, then closing up the bottom.

This creates a cute little lumiary to decorate for the holiday season and they are quick and easy to whip up for a last minute gift!
