Tea-light Card

        Today I am thinking of Christmas and the craft fair I have coming up in November.  I found a template for this tea light card from and I fell in love with it.  It took a few tries to convert cm into inches but I got it to work.  I used craft cardstock and cut it 6 x 12 then you score at 3/8", 1 1/4",  2 3/4", 3 5/8" then you turn your cardstock around and score at 3 1/2 inches.  To make the opening so you can see the tealights I left and inch on top and bottom and cut in 1/4" on each side. (this will be the 2 3/4 portion of the card, which forms the top of the tea light holder).  I tied a ribbon around the tealights so they will not slide out.  I used some ribbon I bought from AC Moore, but was thinking since I was doing a vintage card, I could have used stips of material to make it feel more "old world".  I hope you like it, I think I will be making more to hand out to my co-workers for my Christmas cards - they will get a card and a gift all in one.  Love that it!!
