Hi everyone, welcome to the Handmade Holidays Blog Hop. I've been involved in this hop for the last several years and I am excited to be participating again. Check out this list of sponsors.
My project is a tote which I've filled with candles for a friend.
I'm using a Walnut Hollow tote which I painted with Deco Art gold paint inside and out. I love the rugged texture so I wanted to emphasize it.
Next I aged the tote a bit by inking randomly over the paint with ColorBox Crafter's Ink in Stone.
I used ColorBox Crafter's Ink by Ann Butler in Deep Woods with the ColorBox Bloom Artscreen in the corners.
I wanted to add assorted candles for the recipient so I decorated them first.
I added flowers to the top of the smaller jar, then wrapped ribbon around the lid. The tapers were tied with ribbon and the white candle was rolled in 2 colors of ColorBox Glitter for a fun striped effect.
And the candles fit nicely inside the tote.
