Gift it!

Gift it is the theme over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, showcasing Mama Elephant products.

I have no Mama Elephant products though :-(

I made a little gift box for a stack of three scented tea lights.
you need a piece of paper 7" long and 5 3/8 high. Take note that the design has to be horizontal is it has a direction. I used a poinsettia paper and as they're round they can go up in each direction, but a tree or a Santa or alike image might end up sideways, so just a tip for you there ;-).

Cut your paper to 7 by 5 3/8
Then score on the long side at: 1 5/8, 3 1/4, 4 7/8 and 6 1/2 inches.
Score on the short side at: 1 5/8, 3 1/4 and 4 7/8 inches.
Burnish your scorelines.
Then cut as shown in the pattern (thicker lines) and remove the \\\\\\ bits.

I chose a purple and gold ribbon to show what color candles are inside. You might not want to give a girlie color to a bloke ;-). Of course you could use colored paper instead.
