HYBRID | TEA LIGHTS


Hi all!

This is Annemieke for this month's Hybrid on the Pink Reptile Designs blog
Last year I visited a blog of a very talented and inspiring Dutch girl, who wrote a blog about making your own personalized tea lights. I fell in love immediately and have made them as a gift to friends. Since her blog is offline, I decided to make my own tutorial to tell you how to make them.
Maybe you can make your own and wrap them up as a Christmas gift...

I have one very important note; I have never had problems burning the tea lights, but since the bottom is of paper it's only safe to burn them when you are next to them, please, never leave them unattended to prevent burn damage

To start making your own tea lights download the template HERE
pink reptile designs blog

I used some Pink Reptile elements to fill the circles of the template, you can also add some text, like I did
I added some Christmas text to the template as a gift for you

Now, let's get started!
What you need:


- template
- scissor
- tea lights
- toothpick

Fill up your template with elements or text of your own choice and print it out, ofcourse, I used some my favorite Pink Reptile Designs elements


If you are ready filling the template, print it out on A4 format, this way the circles will fill the tea light perfectly
Cut them out


Now, prepare the tea lights. It's important to buy tea lights like shown on the picture below, you have to be able to pick out the metal circle with the candlewick


Take your paper cuts and make a hole in the middle with the toothpick


Turn the toothpick slightly around to make the hole a bit bigger. This way it will be easier to put them over the candlewick


Slightly put back the candlewax and place them back in the tea light, now they are ready to burn...


After 45 minutes, the wax is all melted and transparent, this is what you will see


You can add some washi tape to the sides to make them more special


Make your own collection and put them in a jar to give to a friend, succes guaranteed


Hope you liked it! Wishing you lots of fun making your own!

NEW: DECEMBER BYOC | GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE

The year has flown by so quickly!
We are in December now and while it is time for celebrating the holidays with our loved ones, family and friends, daily life still goes on. Our regular routines of getting up and going to work or school...

Bearing that in mind, along with the fabulous December color palette, I have created Good Morning Sunshine. Three packs that are focussed on breakfast because a good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for whatever the day might bring!

They will also be perfect for the upcoming January Month of Challenges - MOC6 and they are on sale through Sunday Dec. 3 at 20% off. [If you are a Newsletter Subscriber check the newsletter for the bundle discount!]

PRETTY PAGES FROM THE PINK REPTILE GALLERY | ROUND ROBIN


We had so much fun with our October Round Robin challenge and SO many beautiful pages were created that we decided to give them all a spotlight here on the blog.

Because there's so many pages we had to size them down quite a bit. Each page is linked to the Lilypad gallery though where you can study them in detail and... even better, to pass on some love, we all get a kick out of someone else admiring our work! Or you can admire them in the October Challenge Albun on Facebook here.
