Some years back I used to teach stamping classes to a group of women and whoever hosted the event received a gift from me. I love to give tea lights because 1) I love candles 2) you can always use candles 3) they were easy to decorate and 4) I could always coordinate them with my thank you cards. Several weeks before my release I often take a look at what supplies I have on hand and determine most of my projects. I was digging through one of my drawers and I can across these tea light candles and bags and suddenly I remembered making these sweet hostess gifts. If you are like me, the holiday season fills up with events and parties and I am often scrambling to put together a small gift as a token of my appreciation....and then I got thinking...this would make a perfect hostess gift for those throwing the holiday season events/parties! It's small, inexpensive and says thank you too! One of my favourite things about this ensemble is the sentiment I stamped on the edge of the tea light candle "warming up the season". It couldn't be more perfect!
