Canal Houses Tealight Holder
Now that boxes are being delivered by the dozens these days, I thought I could make as well something fun out of them. After some drawing and painting and some cutting and gluing I was finished.
I used a small, flat box for this project, that I turned on its side.
Cut loose all adhesive tape, so the box can be layed out flat. The drawing will be on what initially was the inside of the box (because the outside of boxes has lettering on it most of the time and you want your houses to be brown).
Search Google for lots of canal house ideas and draw a couple of the most beautiful with a white board marker on what you want to be the front of your box(or draw with a pencil, so you can still correct, and then track with a white marker)
Cut out the facades and windows with a little knife (I use blade 11 for all paper cutting projects).
Cut off the sides and back of the box lower than the front, so they're out of sight behind the canal houses.
Glue white printing paper behind the windows (you can also use tissue paper, but I like the softer light shining through printer paper)
Put tealights behind every facade and voila!
