{ SIZZIX } Tissue Paper Tealight Holder by Clare Cosens

Hello…this week I have been using a Sizzix® Bigz™ Die, Tattered Florals by Tim Holtz® from our Essentials Range to create a tealight holder. This is perfect for anyone looking to add a splash of color to their home.

To make a tealight holder you will need:
Glass Tealight Holder
Paint Brush
The Sizzix® Big Shot™ Machine is perfect for die-cutting multiple layers. You can cut over 100 layers of tissue paper at a time when die-cutting a simple shape such as a circle. I have die-cut 12 layers using this die.

Die-cut multiple layers of the small flower shape. I have used three different colours of tissue paper for this project.
Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the glass tealight and begin to attach the tissue paper flowers.

Overlap the flowers so there are few gaps in between. Alternate the coloured flowers to create the desired effect.

When the tealight is completely covered, apply a final layer of Mod Podge and leave to dry.

Pop in a flameless tealight and enjoy!
