Stampin' Up Reason For The Season Tutorial - making it easy!!

Good evening!
I hope this post finds you all well?
I have been busy crafting for my upcoming stall at the Worsley URFC Christmas fair recently, and I wanted to show you one of my new makes tonight. 

PLUS, how to line up the Reason For The Season stamps and punch bundle for quick and easy Poinsettias!

First of all, here is the finished project....Oh yes, this involves some clever upcycling too...

This gorgeous tealight/candle holder is made from an empty tuna tin and 22 wooden clothes pegs! I simply glued strips of Gold Glimmer Paper to each peg and clipped them to the can, then wrapped it all with some Natural Cotton Ribbon and Linen Thread. I then added the Gold Cording Trim and the stunning Poinsettia, complete with an Iced Rhinestone, coloured with a gold Sharpie.

Here's how it looks when lit...

Isn't it beautifully sparkly?! 

So, I promised to show how to line up the stamps and die to make this all so much easier right? Ok, just check out my little video below...

I think you'll agree that it really is a doddle right? I sometimes think that Stampin' Up! design products deliberately for us Demos to work out easier ways of using them! ;)

So would you like to have a go at making one of these? Well here is a list to all the Stampin' Up! products I used. Please just click on them to order direct from my online shop, or click on the link to the right >>>>>
