Simple white christmas stamped & decorated candle votives gift box

Dreaming of a white light Christmas? Here's a simple decoration idea to turn plain white votive candles into a great gift...

One of Stampin Up's often overlooked products is the vellum cardstock, an opaque white card which can be embossed, stamped on, shaped and cut. I used it a week or so ago on my vintage style recycled tin can candle holder project. 

I've stamped onto the vellum with white Stazon ink using the Everything Eleanor stamp set which is full of lovely vintage style stamp images. A tea lace doily, linen thread and some vintage buttons and brads complete the timeless elegant look.

And how about this for a perfect gift box to fit the candles? Stampin Up's tag a box gift box is a lovely plain kraft gift box with an acetate slip cover so contents can still be seen inside.

All the supplies can be purchased through my online Stampin store which is open for business 24/7!


These lovely scented glass votives were from Laura Ashley but you can pick them up almost anywhere nowadays - although my current firm favourite is the Salted Caramel yankee candles which are on my wish list for Christmas! What's your favourite candle scent?
