Update from the green room

Evening all!

Just a quick update from me - I'm just sitting in the green room, having a cup of tea with Joanna Sheen, getting ready for the last show of the day at 8pm on Ideal World with Martyn Parker.

I just wanted to take a couple of minutes to share with you the sizes from the project I made in the last show... It's a tealight card holder to hold 4 candles in a slider drawer. It's an adaptation of the project on the advanced construction techniques DVD.


For the base drawer, you need to start with a sheet of card measuring 7 1/2 inches x 2 3/4 inches, and score on the box lid side of the boxer board at 5/8 inch depth.

Then for the main card, cut a piece to 11 5/8 x 6 1/2 inches. Score on the box base side at 1/2 inch, then crease, fold and butt again and score at 5/8, then crease and butt and score at 1 1/2, then crease and butt and score finally at 5/8 inch.

From the opposite edge score at 3.5 inches for the half way point.

You should find that the sider works well...


Hope you enjoy making it!

    This is a great project Sara. But would you be able to translate the inches into cm please? xx

    Marion. I have converted for you.

    Base Card size 29cm x 16.5cm
    5/8" = 1.5cm
    1.5" = 3.7cm
    1/2" = 1.3cm

    Little slider drawer 19cm x 7cm, score on all four sides at 1.5cm

    Thank you so much Sara. I was all ready and rearing to go to make one from my DVD until I realised this was a different tea light card to one the DVD.

    Opps forgot to ask for the size of the envelobox envelope we need to make for this to fit into please

    Fantastic show as always Sara!

    The Ultimate Pro is a fabulous crafting tool and no crafter should be without one. I love these cards because you can make them for other small gifts like jewellery, chocolates etc. I am making a friend some jewellery for her 40th birthday, so what better way to give give the gift and card together. :)

    As Kaye says, could you please post the size for the envelobox to fit this card. Thank you!

    Happy Crafting!!! :) X X
