Battery Operated Tealight Characters!

Good Evening!  Today I am sharing my new 
Battery Operated Tealight Characters and Gift Box.  

These files work with a battery operated tealight and they come with all the paper elements shown. The files are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  



Here's the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces.  Grab the piece with the tabs.  Place adhesive on the side tab then adhere the tab to the other side of the piece to form a circle.  Adhere the berries on the holly.
2.  Grab one of your circle frame pieces and place adhesive all over the back of it.  Push the bottom tabs down so they are flat against your workspace. Insert the circle frame piece, adhesive side down.  Adhere it securely to the tabs.  I use a tongue depressor/craft stick to smooth mine out and adhere it in place.
3.  Your piece will look like this.
4.  Place adhesive on the back of the second circle frame piece then place it in adhesive side up (but don't push it all the way down yet).  
5.  Push your tabs down.
6.  Flip the piece over and push the circle frame down against those tabs and adhere in place.  
7.  Your piece should look like this now.  Grab the third circle frame piece.
8.  Place adhesive on the back side of the circle frame and adhere it on the form.  This will be the top.  Gather your solid circle.
9.  Flip the piece over and adhere the solid circle on the bottom.

10.  Your piece should look like this now.
11.  Flip the piece back over and your battery operated tealight will fit inside.
12.  Gather your snowman pieces.  Adhere the hat band on the hat and then adhere the holly on it.
13.  Adhere the smaller circle behind the face circle.
14.  Your face piece should look like this now.
15.  Place adhesive on the backside of the face and adhere it on the candle base as shown.
16.  Adhere the hat in place.
17.  Tie a ribbon (or twine) around the paper base of the tealight holder.
18.  Your holder should look like this now.  






This box is approximately 4-1/4" x 4-1/2" x 1-3/4" and it works with all the Battery Operated Tealight Characters shown above.  The file comes with the box base, the box lid, and the coordinating mats as well as a window sheet cut.  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  

Here's the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces and fold on the score lines.
2.  Adhere the mats in place as shown.
3.  Place adhesive on the four tabs of the base box and on the four tabs of the lid.  Adhere the tabs to the box sides.  Your boxes should look similar to this.
4.  Place the lid over the box base.
5.  This is a view with one of the tealight holders inside the box.
6.  This shows that tealight holder with the lid on.  

Note - the file comes with a window sheet cut.  I do not have it in place as it makes it difficult to photograph.


Here's a look at the new files hitting my store later this week!

Battery Tealight Holders

These will follow the tutorial for the Tealight Base (steps 1-8) which can be found HERE.  After you build the tealight base, these will have a wrap that go around each that you simply adhere in place!  The little turkey has an extra piece where the beak is.  For that you just adhere the little tab to the face area and bend it down so it sticks out.

Decorative Battery Tealight Holders



These battery operated tealight holders come with the box base, insert, and box top that include the holes for the candles to fit in.  The files also include the decorative border shown with each design.  The finished project is approximately 9" x 2" x 1".  These are all compatible with the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.

Here's the Tutorial:
1.  Cut out all the piece and fold on the score lines.

5.  Adhere the border in place.
6.  Place your tealights in the box and embellish as desired!



This box was designed to be the lid of the 5 count candle tealight files.  The lid slips over the candle base to make these easy to give as gifts.  The box also comes with a base so that it can be used on its own as well.  The box is approximately 9-1/8" x 2" x 2-1/2" when finished and is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.
Here is the tutorial:
 1.  Cut out the lid and mats.  Fold the lid piece on the score lines and place adhesive on the two middle (short) tabs.  Note: You will not need the base box if you are covering a candle box.  This is the same box, it is only included in this file in case you want to use it on its own as a gift box.
2.  Adhere the side tabs to the middle tab.
3.  Each side should look like this now.
4.  Adhere your mats in place.

Good Morning!  This week I am sharing new files that use Battery Operated Tealights!  Let's start the week off with my new Cake Tealights!  I am using LED tealights that are 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 1-1/2".  I found a large box of 24 at either my Sams Club or Costco...is it bad that I frequent them both so often that I can't remember which!?  :)

10. Adhere the center to one of the flower pieces.
11. Then adhere the two flowers together.
12. Adhere the flower to the cake!  You can easily pull up the tealight to turn it off and on.


This box is approximately 3" x 3" x 1-1/2" and fits the Birthday Cake Tealight.  The box sides  "explode" out when the lid lifts exposing the tealight cake.  This box can be used on its own as well and is compatible with the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.

This file works with a battery operated tealight and it comes with all the paper elements shown.  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.

I have had a couple questions with this one so 
I am hoping the following will help explain the tiers:
The red are the pieces for the top/smallest tier.  The orange are the pieces for the middle tier.  The yellow is for the largest tier, and then you have the green scallop for the bottom of the cake then the blue scallops for the cake borders (in size order).  

If you have questions, please feel free to email me: jamielanedesigns@gmail.com

Here's the tutorial:

2.  Your base should look like this now.

4.  To build the lid, place adhesive on the four small tabs and adhere them to the box sides.  Adhere mats in place.
