Yesterday I was prepping for my video showing how I made the snowman and penguin tea-light characters which I showed here on Saturday.
During the process I started to think about what else I could apply this idea to! Here are two that I came up with – baubles and butterflies.
Battery-operated tea-lights aren’t just for Christmas!! More ideas followed e.g. snowflakes, flowers, individual letters to spell out a name (for a birthday).
All of a sudden the possibilities seem endless!
Therefore my challenge this week is for different ideas for using battery-operated tea-lights. I’m setting one restriction for myself with this challenge!
That is, I’m not allowed to come up with an idea that is basically the same as this i.e. another cut-out image that stands up in the same way as these do. For example, other characters, cars, seashells, etc.
Ideally I need a 3/8″ hand held punch for the holes in the centre of the base circles and the display image. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find one anywhere on the internet.
I’ve found the normal punches but the hole reach doesn’t go far enough. If anyone knows where I can get one, I’d be really grateful if you’d let me have the details.
With the butterflies I’m showing here, I have adhered the whole butterfly down on one tea-light and just down the body on the other one. I think they look good both ways.
I still need to add some finishing touches to these three. I want to add a bauble topper and bow to the bauble and I’m going to try and add some antennae to the butterflies.
I’m hoping to feature these when I make the video today but it depends on time!
So, until tomorrow, happy crafting.
