I have seen several super cute little crafts made using the battery operated tea lights. I had to jump in on the action. So here is what I did with mine.
How stinkin' cute is this?! I'm in love with these things...lol. Anyhow, I used an svg file from Treasure Box Designs for the basic design. I created my own file for the face circle because I wanted to use my Peachy Keen Face stamps. The hole for the nose is not centered...it is moved down just a bit to fit where the nose is on the stamp. I also resized the hat to fit the size circle I made for the face, which is about 2.5 inches.
Is that just not the cutest face ever? I love how it flickers a bit when it's turned on. The faces are from Peachy Keen Stamps, and they are 1.75 inches. I used a glossy gel pen to make his eyes shiny. I used some chalks to give him some rosy cheeks. So, basically you sandwich the tea light between the back layer...which is several layers in itself...and the top layer. I used Scor Tape to keep the top layer stuck to the plastic tea light. Worked out good. You can see the info in the file you buy on how to assemble.
And the whole thing comes together so nicely with one of My Creative Time's awesome labels and stamps. This is the Fancy Frame Stamp and Die set, but I didn't use the stamp. I cut a second one in green, cut it in half vertically, trimmed off the bits that would show, and layered the top layer onto them...at the ends. This gives a partial mat, but works out quite well. Did a bit of doodling with my white gel pen and added some red crinkle ribbon. The jute tied around the tea light is from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique...love this stuff!
So that's it! These would be super cute little gifts...get your supplies and make some, they are addictive! Fair warning...lol.
