Autumn Tea Lights (and a card too...)

Hi, it's Diane today with something a little different to share.  Sometimes you look at an ordinary object and see it in a completely different way.  The packaging changed on the brand of orange juice we like and when I saw the lids I knew they would be great for tea light bases - with a little help from some Creative Charms gradient gem stickers.

I added various colors and sizes in different patterns on each of the three bases.

I also added gem stickers to the spider bodies and to the centers of the webs.  The spider border and web trim were made with Martha Stewart punches.

For the shortest light, I used some of the Fall Medley leaves applied to the strip of vellum. 

If you drink enough orange juice you could do groups of these all around the house! 

I used a few more items from my Creative Charms stash for this card.  The card front was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.

I used a couple of  Amber Vintage Brads and one Amber Vintage Marble Brad in the centers of some Knitter's Garden - Orange Flowers.

A few gold sequin leaves from the Fall Medley finish the cluster of flowers.

I hope you have a wonderful Fall day!

I love how you colored the words that you embossed. Never thought of doing that! Thanks for the inspiration!

This is really a great economical project! Creative Charms are reasonably priced, the lids are recycled and the votives can be purchased at the dollar store! TFS
