Christmas Triple Play...


I've been making a little project or two for the Verve Project Parade going on at the moment - the challenge is titled 'Triple Play' which involves making three things that could be given as a gift set. Here's what I came up with:

I made a little 'pizza box' full of tea-lights, a fridge magnet and a matching card. I used Verve's Poinsettia Christmas and embossed the flower with gold and watercoloured with Ruby Red (retired colour). I used two on the card and one on the box. Here's the card in more detail:

I used some beautiful DSP from two years ago which I bought a LOT of cos I wanted to hoarde it! I used a doily in the background that I got from the States - gotta love these! I added some Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon and a matching pink button.

I just love this little pizza box with decorated tea lights:

To decorate the candles you simply stamp the image onto tissue paper, punch out with a circle punch then punch a small hole in the middle. Thread the wick through the hole and lay tissue paper flat on the candle surface. Heat with a heat gun until the wax melts and the tissue paper melts into it. Leave to set then wrap the outside of the candle with a strip of matching DSP. The outside of the box is decorated with some matching cardstock (Old Olive, Ruby Red and Blushing Bride). I added some chocolate pearls to finish.

To finish this little set off I made a matching magnet using Verve's Jer 29:11. I found some kitchen magnets at my local supermarket (4 for 20p!!) and stocked up BIG time lol! I cut a few nestability shapes and layered some DSP with matching cardstock and ribbon to make the magnet.

I'm so pleased with how this little ensemble turned out! I definitely will need to make a few more of these!

Thanks for stopping by...
