Lit with Gratitude!

I decorated these pretty square glass votive holders (AC Moore - just $2.19!) for my Ways To Use It Project today - the challenge topic on Split Coast was Giving Thanks.

I wrapped a 10x2 panel of this lovely linen vellum cardstock around the votive. You can see that the light from the candle shines nicely through it. I stampd the sentiments and leaf from Peace and Plenty by Waltzingmouse Stamps right on the vellum with Timber Brown Stazon Ink.I colored the leaf with copics, punched it and layered it on brown cardstock. I wrapped twill around the top and layered the leaf circles over it. Then I just added two gems for a little glitter. I think these will look SO pretty on a table for Thanksgiving don't you?!

Ink: Stazon - Timber Brown
Accessories: circle punches, copics: Y38, E13, R08, twill dark chocolate, Orange zest - PTI, scor tape, rhinestones - PTI, square glass votives - AC Moore
