I have a fun project featuring the beautiful 3D Leafy House Box by Samantha Walker. This is a super cute box for gift giving, but when I first saw it, I immediately saw a luminary. This is an easy project to put together and would look great outside or just somewhere in your home to add a nice decorative touch.
So here's the box. You can cut solid card stock for the inside panels if you're using this as a gift box, however, I cut the inside panels from vellum. Also, if you're using as a gift box, you'll not want to glue the top "roof" tabs together as I have done. The paper I used is actually from a Christmas stack of papers, but I loved the burlap pattern and thought it would be just perfect for this leafy pattern.
Now, as you can see I cut the design out of the back panel so that I can easily put an electronic tealight candle inside. If you're going to put this outside, be sure to put some decorative pebbles around the candle to weigh it down so the wind doesn't take it down the street... although your neighbors might enjoy having one.
This is what it looks like with the candle blazing. Gorgeous isn't it? I love it. And make sure you check out Samantha Walker's other designs that are just like this.... there's one's with Halloween motifs that would be so cool!!
