NEW Valentine's Day Templates at Creations by AR!

WHEN

PRIZE
One winner per blog of a Valentine template of their choice.

•• START HOPPING! ••
Adela Rossol (you're here)

For my first project, I had little Love Birds in mind for this bird cage template, but I decided to make this "Home Tweet Home" template as a tea light candle holder instead. NO, I did NOT use a real tea light -- it's battery operate! I covered the openings with vellum paper and simply placed the fake candle inside with no worries! The roof (comes with or without openings) easily lifts and stays put with a "hinge."

SUPPLIES
Template: Home Tweet Home (Creations by AR)
Paper: SU!, Velum
Acc: Organdy Ribbon, Pins-n-Things Flower, Wire, Chandelier Trinket Beads


"Isn't She Lovely" shaped card goes great with the bird cage template. I decided to add organza fabric to give it a softer look, resembling the velum window cover of the candle holder. Instructions for adding a "gathered" skirt are included in the template.

Be sure to visit the other designers as they show you their creations. Thank you for stopping by!  I'll have another NEW template to show you tomorrow!

I love the tealight bird house and the dress card is delightful!

Linda said...

I think both the birdhouse and dress template would make lovely table decorations for a bridal shower.

Lisa Stewart, Angel #4833 said...

The birdhouse is really cute, and a great idea for the tea light. I love vellum, and that's a perfect use! I think the dress template would make a great place card at a bridal shower or even at a baby shower if you put a little cotton ball bump under there!
