Tea light holder

I was inspired by Scrappy Canuck’s farewell project for the Crop Chocolate design team.  I originally saw this project on Pinterest but Scrappy Canuck made it so pretty!!
I made this for my Aunt Marilyn as a thank you gift for picking me up at the airport last week at 5:30 in the morning…she also is saving me tuna cans since I DO NOT eat tuna, yuck.
Most of the embellishments on this project are from UmWow Studios embellishment kit A Dated Journey.  The beautiful flowers, pins and bird on a branch die cut are all from the collection.
I also used MME Everyday Flair, a MM Paper Reverie gem, Distress Ink-Shabby Shutters, Broken China, Brushed Corduroy and Fired Brick, Fancy Pants Family buttons all from Crop Chocolate.  Miracle Tape from VLVS.  Hemp twine, Mod Podge and clothes pins from my stash.

I have a feeling I will be making more of these in the near future, wouldn’t they be great hostess gifts?!?  I hope you will try making these too!
