Tiny Treat Box Tealight Silhouette Box – Quick and Easy Craft Fair Make. This week I have been making lots of Tealight holders for an event I am helping with this evening. Our local Women’s Institute is rounding off our 70th Anniversary year with a catered dinner. I have made Tealight Holders using Vellum and an old die I have. Each box holds a battery powered Tealight. This got me thinking about what else could be used to hold battery powered Tealights. It is this latter project that I will share with you today. Keep your eyes peeled on Social Media for pictures of the ones I have made for tonight!
I delved into the Annual Catalogue to see what I might be able to use as a quick and easy container for a battery tealight, and came up with the Tiny Treat Boxes. These are fantastic for all tiny gift wrapping. I made a project earlier in the year where I lined the inside of one of these with Designer Series Paper. By changing the paper for Vellum, I have the perfect container for my battery tealights. Now what to use to form my silhouettes?
The Snow Globe Scenes are not only fantastic silhouettes, they are also the right size for my Tint Treat Boxes. I die cut all the pieces in Basic Black card and stuck them to the outside of the Vellum wrap. Sticking them on the outside of the vellum, so they are trapped between the vellum and the acetate, means that there are no ugly adhesive marks AND they will not get caught on anything (which they may have done on the outside of the acetate box!)
Sadly the lighting on the video and in my photos does not show these boxes off at their best. I can imagine them on the stairs all flickering away – maybe not in our house though. Something tells me the cats would think they were Christmas toys for them! These would also be great items to have on a Craft Fair stall. Over the years I have done really well selling Christmas Crafts that have any lights with them. The also make your stall look more interesting and appealing. Just take a look at how short the Product list is too! I have found tealights in packs of 6 in my local pound stores, so these are really Quick, Easy and Cheap to make!

Cut two strips of vellum 2″ x 6″ and score each gently at 2″ and 4″. I found that I also needed to trim a tiny amount off each 2″ end of the vellum to stop any bowing.
