Tea Light Holder

With a little roof flashing, the Big Shot, the Flower Folds Bigz XL Die and some glue dots you can make this fun tea light holder! So quick and so easy.

You probably didn't know the Big Shot would cut through metal as well as card stock. In fact, you'd be surprised how many different materials can be cut with this machine. And to think I didn't think I ever wanted to purchase it! Now I use it so much that I don't know how I ever got along without it.

Anyway, all you need to do is cut a piece of flashing to fit over the three largest flowers. Curl the petals around a pencil or a stylus, folding up along the score lines, then set the flowers insideeach other with mini glue dots. Or set the layers apart by using the pop-up glue dots, which add height to your flower. Use only the two largest flowers for a votive cup instead of a tea light. I love the way the flame reflects off the metal!

You can purchase the roof flashing at any hardware store. The other items you need are:
