More Yankee Candle Box Ideas, FREE Shipping, and Year-End Closeouts!

Last week I shared 3 holiday gift box ideas using 12 x 12 DSP to hold a Yankee votive candle (or other gift/treat). Today I have some alternative ideas. The first uses cardstock to make the box. (*The directions are the same as the previous ones made with DSP. Click HERE for measurements, etc.)

You can add layers to the cardstock panels using any DSP.  The DSP panels measure 1 7/8 x 1 7/8. It’s a great alternative with the  6 x 6 DSP packs or when using patterned paper that is directional (like Toil Tidings shown below).

You can close the box with clips, mini clothespins, mini library clips, ribbon, etc. Use what you have!

The Stampin’ Up! Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are the perfect size to hold a Yankee votive candle as well.  You can create a holder for the candle using DSP to coordinate to put inside the box.  Then dress it up with some coordinating ribbon for a pretty presentation.

I like that you can see the candle in this version.  It’s great for craft shows or when you want the person to be able to choose their favorite scent or color. To make the holder, cut a piece of DSP that measures 3 x 3. Score on all 4 sides at 1/2″.  Use the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch to center and punch a circle from the middle. Slide the punch all the way up and make sure it is centered on either side, then punch.

Then cut the corner tabs and use a mini glue dot on each tab to secure the holder.

Insert in the acetate box, put the candle in the holder, and wrap with ribbon. *Optional: Cut a 2 x 4 square from the same DSP, fold in half, and slide it in the box behind the candle holder. It makes it easy to distinguish the front from the back. It also allows you to add a stamped sentiment on the back of the box.

These are so quick & easy to make! They would be great table favors if you are hosting a dinner party. If you are traveling over the holidays pack a few for the housekeeper, etc. I love to leave little gifts for my cleaning ladies and always bring a little something when I go for a pedicure, haircut, massage, etc. I had fun using different stamps, punches, and ribbons to embellish. Here’s some of the other ones I made.
