Gift Tube for Stamped Candle

Again this is a tutorial that Jane did for the Whiff of Joy tutorial section here. I made it for my MIL's birthday. It isn't very good, as I didn't have any acetate. I am absolutely rubbish at measuring etc etc etc. The one that Jane did was amazing, she is so talented.

For the tube I used a laminate sheet and put some flowers inside before laminating it. I messed up the bottom, it looked all ruffled so I put some lace with ribbon through it to cover it up. The top fluffy ribbon was also to cover up the mess I made at the top hahaha. The whole thing was just one big cover up haha.

The ribbon on the top here was for when the lid was lifted off, cos let's just say my cutting was an absolute mess. I am so tired at the moment as my son has a little virus and my two girls haven't been sleeping for the last couple of months what with teething and nightmares about spiders hmm.

The lid I just put three, Prima flower I think with little material flowers in the middle and a few flat backed pearls to jazz it up a little. The paper I used were from a docrafts goody bag I got either last year or the year before haha. Three kids later and I have no concept of time or anything actually!

Above is the tag I made for it, to match the candle. I stamped sweet and sassy stamp on the same card and put some pink string through it with a sandal charm. I have some whiff of joy stamps but for this one I decided my MIL would like this image.

So this is a pic of the finished product. Not the best you would see but considering the amount of booboo's (baby language is very catching) I made it isn't so bad.
Anyway if you like the idea of the gift tube then check out Jane's blog or the tutorial she did for the Whiff of Joy website, there are links at the top of this post.
