Tea Light Birthday Cake

Isn't this little light the cutest? A friend of mine received it as a swap during Convention. I had to come home and make one for myself. If you are signed up for the Birthday stamp-a-stack then you will be taking one of these cuties home. If not, there is still room in the August 6th class so sign up today!

It is simple to make, I created this one on my own and then discovered a tutorial on splitcoaststampers after. My design is a bit different I did want a clean circle around the flame.

The side is a strip of designer series paper. The top is two parts, the first being the 1-3/4" scallop circle with a 3/4" circle punched out of the center. Attach this piece to the top. Then I took a 2" x 2" piece of card stock and punched a circle using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack (118309). That is where the "flame" will fit. I then took the 1-3/8" circle punch and punched around the tiny circle, your piece will look like a washer. I slid this circle over the flame and attached it to the scallop. I tried to mask the seam with the red glitter but it isn't necessary.

And look, it even lights up! Love it! The base is the 2-3/8" scallop circle. To be sure it is sturdy I layered a piece of the dsp cardboard backing under my card stock. There is a switch on the bottom for the light and I just used the Itty Bitty circle punch there again. To get it placed right I made a quick template with printer paper.

Paper: real red patterns dsp; real red and pool party cardstock
Accessories: 2-3/8" scallop punch, 1-3/4" scallop punch, 1-3/8" scallop circle, itty bitty shapes punches; red fine galaxy glitter and basic rhinestones
