So long Outlaws!

I have a sign in my front room that says, "Outlaws welcome, in-laws call first" - is that bad? Hee hee! I loved the Outlaw Designer Series Paper from the Fall-Winter Catalog. But since it has expired, I had to use it up. So I started with this fun box and candle project.

To make the box, I cut a piece of 12x12 Designer Series paper in half, creating 2 6x 12 pieces of paper. I wanted my box to be a little smaller, so I cut each piece down to 4 1/2 x 10. I then scored each of the large pieces at 1/2", and 2 1/4" on each side of the paper - you may adjust your score lines to the size of box you want to create. After folding the ends over, I added eyelets at 1 CM from the edge of each lip.
I then crossed the paper over eachother to create a t shape. and used my Snail to adhere the top piece to the bottom piece.
To form the box, I used 4 pieces of twine in the eyelets next to eachother.
The candle was made using the Wanted set. I stamped the horses, and stars in Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip Classic ink onto white tissue paper. I then wrapped the tissue paper around a candle that I purchased at Dollar Tree, and used my heat gun to set the tissue paper. I added another piece of twine around the candle to finish the look!
