Perfumed candles are always a lovely gift at any time of the year and this Candle Gift Box Tutorial will show you how to give them in an elegant and stylish way.
Any time of the year is perfect to give this little gift that is so easy to make.
And the ladies will love the perfumed candles that are in all the shops, in all different colours.
There are floral, spices, foliage, chocolate, ginger and all the other aromas you can imagine that can be turned into a neat little package.
Some wrapped in cellophane others in ribbon, the choice is yours
Or add your own to the candles as I show you here in this Candle Gift Box Tutorial.
Just a few simple steps and your imagination.
The candles them selves are very inexpensive but need some packaging to make them really special.
Please remember to remove the band around the candles before you light them
There are also video instructions for you to make the Tealight Candle Card and that is another beautiful gift, but the instructions here are to make a gift box for the larger candles.
I got mine from Ikea and if you are lucky enough to have a store near you then it is well worth a visit... (and the meatballs are delicious too!!)
The Tutorial is neither long. nor difficult, but it will take you step by step through making and decorating both the candles and the box.
Because the depth to the sides of the box is large I used the graph paper to give me the correct measurement for my box,
The graph paper is ready lined and ensures that the box will have straight sides to it when I cut the card.
Using this technique will enable you to make a box any size that you want if you place your object in the centre and follow the same steps.
You will of course need to be sure that your good card is the size to make the box and you will need one for the base and one for the lid.
It can be dressed up as you wish but if you are adding lots of embellishments to the candles then don't forget to leave space in the box to accommodate them.
There are also many 12 x 12" cards on the market so look for your favourite one and make sure that you have two that match each other for the base and the lid.
There may be a double sided card that you would like to use for this candle gift box tutorial, and that would make the inside look as good as the outside when the box is opened.
