Tropical Chic Large Tea Light Shadow Frame Gift Box

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I really hope you like my project. I made a list of projects I wanted to do with the Tropical Chic bundle when I was decided about getting it and a gift box was on the list. I thought the Square die would make a lovely lid. Then I remembered I have these large Tea Lights from Ikea and they were a good size for this project but perhaps a little too small. So I decided to make a shadow box frame to hold the tea light.

Working out the measurements was a long process and I used lots of scrap card for this until after attempt 4 I managed to get the perfect measurements.This box can be made from one standard sheet of card stock.

Of course this box could be used to gift other things as well. I left the die cut open so the beautiful scent from the tea light could be smelt through the gaps. Then I thought why don't I add a backing in a contrasting colour so the box could be used for something else that you didn't't want holes for. Not sure which I like best. What do you think?

Measurements and Materials

Box Base

  • Tranquil Tide Card Stock 8" x 8"
  • Score on all 4 sides @ 3/8" - 1 1/4" - 1 5/8" - 2 1/2"
  • On 2 opposite sides score @  2 7/8" & 5 1/8"  stopping at the second score line
  • The base is then made up as you would a shadow box frame - see video for this

Box Sliding Lid

  • Tranquil Tide Card Stock 3" x 8 1/4" (or 8 1/2' if your standard sheet is that wide) 
  • Score on the long side @ 3 1/16" - 4" - 7 1/16" - 8"
  • I used my Stampin Trimmer for this due to the 1/16" measurement 

Optional panel

  • If you wanted to add a panel to the box then cut a square of card stock  2 7/8" x 2 7/8"
  • Adhere to the frame edges and add adhesive to the leaves as well
  • I would apply this before I assembled the sliding lid

    Watch the video tutorial to see how the box was constructed :-)
