Count My Blessings stamp set candle holder

Here is a 3D item I snuck into card buffet, they don't really like 3D items.
Though, it was very popular!

I saw a Christmas one and didn't want to wait to offer it to my stampers.

1 sheet Pumpkin Pie cs (or other color if for a different holiday)
Vellum 2 pieces 3" x 4"
1 strip of dsp 3/4" x 12 Painted Autumn dsp (trim end after attaching)
Linen Thread
Embellisment or punched shape ( I used retired accents)
Tear & Tape Adhesive
glue dots
Tombow Multi Purpose glue
Stitched Shpes Framlits (You can use any framelit that fits in the panels)
Stazon Ink
Stamp set of your choice
LED candle

How to:
Stamp images with Stazon, centered on vellum, set aside to dry.
When dry attach Tear & Tape Adhesive to top and bottom edges only 
of the front side. (side image is stamped on)

1. With long edge of cs at top of scoreboard, score Pumpkin Pie cs 3 places at at 2.75 - 5.5 - 8.25
2. Cit in half to get 2 4.25" x 11  pieces

3. Fold in half.  Place framelit centered over folded cs.  
Use post its to hold the framelit, it will slide around.
By cutting them at the same time they are in the same place on both panels.
Run thru Big Shot.

4. Fold on other score lines.  

5. Attach dsp strip with Multi Purpose glue, folding strip over folded edges, 
this gives you time to adjust the dsp over the folds.  Trim off excess.

6.  Attach vellum on inside over window openings.  Center designs in windows.
You could cut windows in back panel and add vellum windows there too.
I found the light showed better out one side.   Maybe I need bigger led candles.

7. Fold back panel on all fold lines. Attach to front panel with sticky Tear & Tape Adhesive. 
ON INSIDE of cs, not over dsp.  Just showing for the adhesive challenged.
I put 2 strips, one at each side of end panels. 

8. Attach Linen thread, winding into circle, attaching to a 1/2" strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Attach an embellishment over this using glue dots, to hide tape.

Done, place candle inside.  Great centerpiece idea for a holiday.

Happy stamping!
