I love candle projects, and this is an idea I've had for a while for the tag punch. This is a strip of cardstock 10 1/2 x 3 1/4, scored at every 2 1/2 inches, leaving a 1/2 inch tab to glue it together. I scored and stamped the cardstock, then used the score lines as a guide to center the tag punch, pushing it in all the way. The corners on the top are trimmed to follow the shape of the tag punch. I sponged around the windows and along all the edges to give it dimension and depth. The flowers are stamped with Versamark on cardstock vellum, embossed with detail black EP and colored in with markers on both sides to intensify the color. I trimmed the vellum to 2 x 2 inches and glued inside the windows, then glued it together. There's no bottom and it folds flat for mailing.

Candle lover here!! This is a most beautiful and clever piece of work! Oh, my gosh, the depth and dimension of those flowers--made even more beautiful with the glow of the candle. This is the perfect vessel for a floral scented votive, and boy do I have plenty of those! True art, Linda!
