8th Week of Christmas...two easy gift ideas.....

On the 8th week of demonstrator showed to recycle and make two really cute, fast, easy and inexpensive gifts for Christmas- tea light candle holder and tree ornaments with snowflake die! 


Supplies Needed: 

Aluminum Flashing or pop cans
Snowflake die
Big Shot
Tea light candles


This is oh so simple...use your snowflake die to cut out two aluminum snowflakes- personally I prefer the pop cans as it adds a bit of color along with the silver color.  

Carefully bend and shape the snowflakes to accept the tea light. Use crystal effects to glue the two snowflakes together (I clamped them until they were dry.  Then I just placed the tea light in the center....this way when the candle has burned up, I can easily replace it. 

This is a very quick, inexpensive and lovely gift idea for the holiday season....who doesn't love a beautiful handmade with love gift. 

Another idea is that you can use two of the single snowflakes as tree decorations....just bend them together for a 3D effect and add some pretty ribbon to hang it on your tree.
