Silver Sparkles

At this time of year my attention turns to desk top treats that I can make for my colleagues at work – and the treats that can go inside them. Chocolate and sweet treats are often the default goody that I reach for, but there are times when these aren’t suitable and other options are required.

Tealights are one alternative, especially scented ones. The ones I used in this box are different to the usual, they are 6 hour candles which means they are deeper than the normal tealights – fitting 8 in this box.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) used is Feels like Frost, a gorgeous returning fave from last year – both sides of the paper are lush, aren’t they? I kept the theme focussed around the silver of the paper and finished it off with the silver edged ribbon.

I think it would be a cute table gift as an alternative to sweet treats.

Best Wishes,
