Mothers Day Week: Small Exploding Candle Box on Legs

  • March 07, 2017
  • by

I’ve made an exploding box in the past for a larger candle which I keep on my inspiration shelf. But every now and then I think it would look great with some legs at the bottom I just never got round to trying it till now. I really love the way it turned out and excited to be sharing it with you. I love stamping on to candles, I think it makes for a really personal gift and what better way to show them of then in an exploding box with some legs.

I used an Ikea pillar candle which is roughly 2-1/4 x 3-1/4″ they come in a pack of four so great for making lots of these. of course you don’t have to make them just for Mothers day, they can be for any occasion. But if your gonna take time to make a project like this it might as well be for your mum. Lol

I’m really loving the regals colours at the moment, but i’ll try to resist using them tomorrow, i’m not promising anything though. lol It just goes to show how far you can stretch the DSP packs. I’m a big fan of them and feel they get neglected for the suite packs of DSP in all there loveliness. I think there great for everyday occassions especially with the 4 different designs. so I do hope you get a pack and give them a try (if you haven’t already) and share what you’ve been making with them.
