http://scrappeskreppe.blogspot.com/ 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!!
