Fabricate Friday – IKEA Votive Candle Box

Hiya.  I went on holidays last month and happened to shop at IKEA (we don’t have one where I live) and I picked up a few of these votive candles.  They smell great, and are a fab gift for anyone!  Check out the box I made to house this candle.

Cherry on Top Stampin' Up!

Here is the video.  Enjoy the show.

So the details are below.  Keep in mind it can be confusing so I am going to separate the construction into 3 segments for you.

Segment 1:  Insert

  • Cardstock: 6 by 6
  • score at 1 inch on all sides
  • use frame lit and big shot

Segment 2: Base

  • card stock 7 by 7
  • score at 1 1/2 inches on all 4 sides
  • cut tabs in the pin wheel style

Segment 3: Flip top lid

  • card stock 8 1/16 by 8 1/16
  • score at 2 inches on all 4 sides
  • Lid top decoration has 2 layers
    • First layer : 3 3/4 by 3 3/4 (plain card stock)
    • Second layer: 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 (DSP)
  • Side DSP: 3 3/4 by 1 3/4 (4 pieces)

    Hi, another great idea from you! I will look out for these candles, they would make a lovely gift in your beautiful box. You made me smile when you were making your bow with the smallest piece of ribbon – well done! You have much more patience than me; it would have ended up in a horrible tangled knot, then in the bin! Thanks for a great tutorial Susanne – hope you have a good weekend! (the sun has finally made an appearance here, but it’s still flipping cold!!!) 😉 x

      Oh my goodness Karen, I almost quit there…it seemed that I was all fingers and no ribbon. Ha! If nothing I am determined. Glad you stopped by and the sunshine is shining on you. It’s a bit cloudy here, a nice reprieve from the scorching rays! Take care and I’ll see you soon.
