Lift Me Up Tea Light Box - Simple Instructions

Tea Light Box, Lift Me Up, Stampin' Up!

Since I discovered how easy it was to make boxes and other 3D projects I have not been able to stop! I have even got so far as designing my own, such as this Tea Light box which holds four Tea Lights. It is the perfect gift for friends.

FREE Designer Series Paper 
The hot air balloon paper 'Carried Away' that you can see on this project is actually FREE when you spend £45 on Sale-a-bration products between now and the 31st March 2017. See the post at the top of this page for more details - the Sale-a-bration Brochure shows you what you can choose instead if you don't like this paper.

How to make this box - Measurements 
You'll need three pieces of card to make this box, all cut from one piece of A4 Cardstock. Obviously, if you want the pieces to be different colours you'll need to use more than one piece of A4, but in terms of card usage this project is reasonably low. I used the Stampin' Up! Simply Scored scoreboard to score the cardstock.

BASE TRAY - 4 6/8" x 4 6/8" - please score at 6/8" all the way around. Snip a line in each corner and adhere.

COVER - 3 3/8" x 9 " - score at 6/8", 4 1/8", 4 7/8", and 8 2/8" across the width (not length). Adhere so that you have a cover to slide your base tray into.

INSIDE PANEL - this is a tiny strip of card that holds your ribbon pull-tab in place. 6/8" x 3 2/8" - glue inside using strong glue or sticky tape.
