VOTIVE CANDLE HOLDER, CARD, GIFT TAG - GINGERBREAD CARTRIDGE, DIGITAL DELIGHTS

Hi Everyone!  I saw this little cutey Christmas Tree on the Digital Delights by Louby Loo website and just had to smile!  He's soooooo happy and guess what his name is?  "Smiley Tree!!"  Now isn't that just perfect that this little tree?  I thought I would make several different things using him. 

I colored the trees with my favorite markers - Promarkers - then cut them out.  I then used the Circut Craftroom to weld two Christmas Trees together from the Gingerbread Cartridge.  I folded the trees in half to form a card.  I adhered a Smiley Tree to each side of the card.

 I then cut another Christmas tree out and adhered a Smiley Tree to the front, punched a hole through the star and tied red ribbon through the hole - voila - gift tag!!

Last but not least, I decided to make a votive candle holder.  Now let me state that this votive candle is "battery operated" so that it won't burn the house down!!  To form the base, I cut out a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" square.  I scored at 3/4" all the round around.  I cut the corners and then used Tacky Tape to form the base. 



I adhered a Smiley Tree on two sides of the base. I popped the candle inside and then glued the two stars together.


I hope these projects brought a smile to your face just like they did mine!!  Thanks for stopping by - we so love company!!  After visiting us, please stop by the Digital Delights to see all the beautiful creations made by the other Design Teams members.  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna
