Well that is a convoluted title to a blog post, or a very descriptive one, depending on your view I guess.
Today’s project is one that I am mass producing for a May Fair in a village near to us next weekend – if you live in the Didcot/Abingdon area of South Oxfordshire, drop in to North Moreton on Sunday 7th May between 2pm and 4pm to join in all the fun and have a chat. It would be great to see you.
So this is a little box for an Ikea Jumbo Tealight, but would work for most Jumbo Tealights. there are minimal supplies, although it does use items from the new Eastern Palace Suite, which you can get in one of two Bundles available from tomorrow!! More details of those further down this post.
So, here is the video, complete with what is left of my voice, and a cough!
It is a really simple box to construct and the measurements are (sorry, Imperial only – my bring hurts too much to convert today!):
Lid – 4-3/8 x 4-3/8″ scored on each side at 1″
Base – 4-5/16 x 4-5/16″, also scored on each side at 1″
Ribbon – 10″
You will need a scrap of cardstock for the die-cutting, and a tiny scrap of foil for the centre of the die-cut, punched with the 1/2″ circle punch.
So the really exciting news about the Eastern Palace Suite Bundles. The full suite will be available for customers once the catalogue goes live on 1st June, but the Starter and Premier Bundle are available from tomorrow, 1st May until 31st May. The really import thing to note is that both bundles include some FREE items, but that if you want the FREE items, you will have to order the Bundles before 31st May, because they will not be available in this format after that date. Both Bundles also include three of the five new In Colours!!

If you are thinking of buying the Premier Bundle (and who wouldn’t), PLEASE stop and think before you buy. WHY!! Because you would be better to buy the Starter Kit. Seriously, for just 5p more, you can get the Starter Kit for £99 (which includes free P&P, rather than having to pay £4.95 on top of the bundle), but add a further £31.00 of product. The maths makes the choice an easy one. Pay £98.95 (£94.00 + £4.95 P&P) for just the Premier Bundle, which is great value, OR make the wise choice and pay £99 to get £130 of product of your choice and then get the chance to order from the new catalogue in May at a DISCOUNT.
