Golden Dodecagon Votive Candle

Today is the day when several bloggers join in a Craft and Create Challenge of the month. This month the theme is use your imagination. A few month ago this Dodecagon was made out of a cereal box. My soon to be daughter in law was pricing these votives for the wedding. $$$$$ The test project proved to be an cost effect design for decor for the wedding day.

Above is an example of your computer screen while cutting and scoring in one setting using the Cricut Maker.

The scoring lines along with crisp cuts make an easy quick process to complete the craft. This project is not in my While in my craft room I cut the votive candle then brought them with me on the weekend.  Where is your favorite place to craft and create?  I love creating at the lake house. Please visit our Summer lake house tour. I am sure you will agree.

An easy way to bend straight tabs with the card stock my tip is to use your Cricut scrapper.

Once you fold all your angles become clear. I used double sided tape which fell apart from the heat and humidity the first one I assembled. This turned out to be a gift since I dry brushed the white interior with a matte gold then used tiny Zots to complete. The Zots worked much better and the brushed matte gold amped up the presentation of the votive.

AA few months ago cereal boxes proved to be a testing ground for making Dodecagon votive. For detailed directions follow this link to the tutorial.  It has a strong structure for battery operated candles. The price on one of these votives is costly out of metal painted gold. Each votive cost no more than two dollars with the battery operated candle.That is quite a savings!

Imagine the many parties you could use this Dodecagon Votive Candle Holder.
