See a Silhouette Double Ikea Tea Light Box. I really like this box because looking at it the recipient is unlikely to guess what is inside. Simply by making the box, in effect, on its side, you change the expectation. I also like this box because the patterned paper I used for both is EXACTLY the same, just different sides. Who would think that you can get a really bright project with a lot of ‘zing’ and a more subdued one from the same paper?
The box is sized for the Large Ikea Tea Lights. These should be fairly easy to get hold of wherever you are in the world. The final size of the box is 2-3/8″ x 2-3/8″ x 1-3/4″, so is large enough for lots of other goodies if large tea lights are not your ‘thing’. The full dimensions are at the bottom of this post, where you will always find the measurements for my projects.
The See a Silhouette Suite is in the Annual Catalogue (pages 132 – 134) and includes so many wonderful products, including the Crushed Curry Seam Binding I used in the first project, the Shimmery White Embossing Powder and the Mini Library Clips. The Clips are just so cute and are perfect for attaching the labels I made.
The sentiment I used comes from the Tasteful Textures stamp set, which I see as an honorary part of the See a Silhouette Suite and is one of my most used stamp sets. It is such a versatile set with a great combination of sentiments and texture stamps that can either be used in the background or ‘front and centre’.
Don’t you love that you can get two really different looking products simply by turning the paper over and adding different ribbon. All the papers in the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper feel like they are made using Pigment Sprinkles, but without the mess!! I hope you love this project as much as I do and that you will give it a go.
