Midnight Fairytale Candle

Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Sarah's turn to host and she would like to see you 'Make A Gift'.
I decided to decorate a candle and make a sturdy gift box for it.  I used a Midnight Fairytale stamp as this candle is for my Mum and she loves Fairies.  I adhered it to a doily and added roses, sequin flowers and pearls.  Lots of sparkle to the wings and butterflies.  The box now that was a little harder, as  I had to make it larger than the usual candle boxes I do, to allow for the flowers and doily round the base of the candle.  I used cereal boxes to do the initial layout of the box, then used stiffer card to line the box to make it sturdy
Here's the candle:-

And a view of the back of the candle and the lid of the box.

Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.
