Y is for Yankee Candle Box for the Yuletide Season

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I have a quick & easy Yankee candle box for the Yuletide season. These boxes are ready to fill with a votive candle gift or treats.

Here’s the details to make the box:

Materials & Measurements

  • DSP: 6 x 8 1/2 scored on the long side at 2, 4, 6, 8. Scored on the short side at 2 and 4.
  • Whisper White or Very Vanilla: scrap to stamp sentiment and cut with Square Die
  • Gold Foil/Copper Foil: 2″ square to cut Layering Square Die
  • Ribbon: ~ 6″ to thread through top of box and tie a bow or knot


  • Fold and burnish score lines. Cut the small rectangles off each end at the bottom.  Cut the score line on each side up to the first score line.Stampin' Up! Box for Yankee Candle Votives - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  • Add adhesive along the notched piece and close the box to adhere.
  • Make sure the seam is in the back then close the bottom of the box. First fold in the sides, then fold the back piece forward, add adhesive and fold the front piece back.
  • Add your votive candle or other gift and fold the side flaps in to close. Hold the front and back pieces together, punch two holes with 1/8″ hole punch and thread ribbon through and tie a bow to close.
  • Stamp sentiment and cut out with Layering Squares Dies.  Adhere to foil then attach to box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Optional: Add embellishments to box.

The Yankee Candle votives were on sale this weekend (1/2 price) so I stocked up! It’s amazing how easy it was to match with Stampin’ Up! cardstock and DSP! Here’s a look at each box.

  1. Oh boy ! Just perfect for the little Bath and Body hand sanitizers I just bought (Warm Vanilla Sugar ) . This is better than that Christmas Moose box I was planning on . There is just something not right about a moose and sweet smelling hand sanitizers !!
    Thank you for this one because as I said I make little SURSIES (southern for surprise treats ) a lot !
    Now how about the price on that sentiment set !!! Glad you brought it to my attention !!

  2. All are special! While reading about them I changed my mind three times as to which was my favorite. I am sure I will be making at least a couple of these for the holidays. I just received my order of new ribbons so on with the pairings! I would love love to receive any as a little present.

  3. Oh Jeanie, Everytime you post, I want to drop what I’m doing and go craft. Really, I have to mark/make some time on my calendar to craft. Thanks for sharing. Love all the pictures.
    Have a blessed day.

  4. I agree with Nancy…. I want to drop everything and case what you posted! These are so nice to give out putting a smile on someone’s face. Thank you and enjoy the day!
