Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake Box Die 'Tea Light' Tutorial

Hello there!
My apologies for the lack of posts lately but I have been busy making things for several craft fares.

Finally my Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake Die arrived after it being on back order as it was out of stock - yay!!
 I thought that I would show you a picture tutorial of how to put it together:

Firstly cut out 2 die cuts of DSP or card stock (I used my big shot):

Next curve the edge with the rounded top (the handle) with a bone folder:
Here is my 'top tip' if you would like to punch a hole in it - place a post it punched hole where you would like the hole to be:
Then you can just punch it out knowing that it will be perfectly placed!:
Now put some double sided tape (sticky strip) on the bottom square:
Next place the second die cut on top:
As I used vellum I then added a punched out piece of card stock to make it more stable but you would not need this for something more heavy weight.
Now pinch the two handles together and then fold over one of the pointed sides to close it:
Next fold over the other pointed edge:
VoilĂ !! You now have a Tea Light candle holder (battery operated of course!):

The tag die comes with the set and there are three in total.
I have made lot's more of these but will show you those another time as I'm sure this post has quite enough photos!!

So I hope that my tutorial makes sense!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.
