This week's Bitten by the Bug2 challenge is to make a 3D item - any theme.
I chose Cricut Domed Box #M97B36 from Fancy Boxes. It really is a closed off gift box, but I thought it would look gorgeous as a tea light. What an intricate cut - but my cricut handled it well! There were a few spots that skipped, but sharp scissors made the tears smooth.
I decided to turn these into the lights and instead of cutting the inside panels, I hand cut transparency paper. I hand cut them because I had 8.5 by 11, instead of 12x12 sheets. I painted the cardstock with a bronze medium (DecoArt Metallic Lustre wax in Iced Expresso) to give it a bit of a patina look.
I also finished off the tops to ones - the one that cricut shows the box (right) and my way, a closed off topped (left).
Here is how they look lit up:
