Hostess gift boxes for flameless candles

Last holiday season, my hostess gift of choice was a flameless candle bought in three packs from QVC. But since they came in a three pack, I needed a box for each one. So…I made them on my Silhouette Cameo.

 


This one was gifted right before Thanksgiving, so I wanted a fall theme but not really Thanksgiving, yet.

This one was for a Thanksgiving evening get together. I wanted a fall theme but this one also bordered upon Christmas. The butterfly is a Spellbinders die from the Wonderful Wings set, which is one of my favorites.

This one was for a Christmas party so all out, full Monty Christmas theme.

Another Christmas themed one:

I made a poinsettia for the top of the two Christmas themed boxes. I cut the three layers, assembled them largest on the bottom & the smaller ones on top & secured with a brad.
The cut for the box was from SilhouetteOnline. This is the bottom of the box. I also cut a square from a cereal or cracker box that was the size of the bottom of the assembled box. I used some of the scraps to cover it, then put it in the bottom to give the box more strength. Since the lids are not tight fitting, I always secured them to the bottom of the box by tying with a ribbon. This prevents someone from picking it up by the sides & the lid sliding off & letting the bottom of the box (and the candle!) fall.

This is the top of the box:

These are the cuts for the poinsettia:
