A Candle to help you see through all this fog !!!!!...........

 Morning all, hope you are all well & happy. Hope you had a good Halloween weekend, and if you went to any firework displays, you were able to see them LOL !!!
Very foggy here in Kent all weekend and yesterday too. There was a fireworks display in the village on Sunday night, but the fog was a real "pea-souper" as they use to say in London when there was smog!!! We don't normally go as i don't like to leave Rolo (border terrier) alone during this time, as he barks whenever he hears a loud firework go off and also i can normally see the display from my bedroom window (cheap skate !!). But this year i saw nothing!!

Anyway, onto today's blog. This book folding project was very simple to do, it just involved 3 folds per page of a paperback book. 
As you can see it's a candle with a t-light in the top. Although i wouldn't recommend using a t-light (fire hazard), but use a battery operated one. At the time of taking these photo's, I couldn't find mine, so have just placed the t-light at the top to give you the idea.

 This is the view from above. I have added red glitter into the top recess. I have used red as the theme, with stick on flat sparkles and a thick felt reindeer/ Christmas tree border. 
 I have added the wording "happy Christmas" as well as a red circular base out of card.
I know i wasn't going to make anything else for Christmas.....but couldn't resist!!! willpower LOL !!

Have a good day. x
