Something Different Saturday

Happy Difference!

Something Different Saturday is Back (I hear groans from around the country "Not MORE Box's!" lol)  I'm afraid paper engineering is my favorite paper-crafting so I'm afraid its back to the 3D and box after box!

As you can see today's creation is a candle box, only for electronic candles or ones that are not to be lit may I add.  This is made with Spellbinders expandable pattern die and acetate.  The lid, next picture, is removable and is made as a separate piece using a Fan die from Tonic.

The piece is made using Core'dinations card-stock which has been cut, embossed and sanded to give an impression of carved wood.

Low on description hopefully highish  on style!

  5. Hi John. I would be disappointed if you didn't show a box or 3D goodie on Something Different Saturday! I love this candle cover, and the lid really finishes it off. Beautiful. Take care.

  6. Wow John, that looks amazing, have a good weekend, best wishes Jackie

  7. Please don't apologize for engineering, I love it.This is amazing, who would believe you could do so much with paper.

  8. Love the box John, especially as I have three of these candles, and the main die... just short of the Tonic one, but I may be able to adapt another one... Thanks for the idea.
