Low Cal Tea Light Cakes

I wondered out on my Pinterest one night while have a bout with insomnia and found the cutest stankin' thing!

Combining a multi-colored tea light and CTMH papers and the new Artiste Cricut cartridge, I've been enjoying some low (ha!) NO cal treats and making a Baker's box to match!
It's simple really…grab up those battery tea lights. Cut a piece of B/T paper .50 x 4.75
wrap around the tea light. Punch matching B/T using our scalloped circle punch.
Fold in half, then in half again. Snip off the pointed end, lay across the top of the tea light with the flame going through the hole. Now decorate!
(keep in mind the switch has to be accessible on the bottom, so if you want a base to your cake, punch or cut a hole in the bottom)
The Baker's box is on page 69 using the Birthday Girl key. There are 3 pieces. I cut them at 2.5 inches. Don't forget all the great colors of Baker's Twine we now offer, too!
You can order your own Artiste Cricut Collection on my website

 The yellow flame made me think of Halloween…and you can't just have regular flowers on a Halloween treat, right?!

Want something nice but not too cute for the guy who lights up your life?
