Hubby to the Rescue!

As always, my hubby jumped in to rescue me with a trip to the hardware store.  I really wanted to make these adorable little tea light holders with my downline, so Sean was off to find me Flashing that is used for a house.  I couldn't believe how easily my Flower Folds Big Shot Die went through this.   I had initially thought of making these with my Grade Sevens next year, but after realizing the Flashing is fairly sharp once cut I've decided it's not the best idea.  The actual tealight holders are not sharp at all, but because of the shape of the petals, the negative image has some sharp points!  (I won't tell you how my downline learnt this:)  We only needed the three largest sized flowers from the die to make the candle holder, but that last little folder is too cute to toss and looks absolutely stunning when put through a Textured Impressions Folder... card front here it comes!

  1. That flashing is on my list of things to go buy; love this idea!

  2. Wow, this seems really very nice. I think it is easy to make. It looks so attractive and hope my husband will like this. I really love to make this as soon as possible.

  3. Ah yes- that was fun! I have to get my hubby to bring some flashing home from work so I can try making some different things with it!

  4. Oh my gosh - this is an amazing idea! I LOVE this!!! Off to home depot to get flashing now!! LOL
