A little gift set

     Hello everyone! I've been busy cleaning my house this morning and decided to take a break to check my blog.  My son is on fall break, so he is home with me today.  My daughters break is Thursday and Friday.  It's kinda nice to have each one home at different times.  I took Kole to the Covered bridge festival yesterday per his request and my daughter wants to go on Friday with my niece and sister. They both will have to spend a day cleaning up their rooms too. I try not to push them too hard when they have school work to do. The break came at a much needed time.
     The Project that i made to post today is a little decorated tealight inside a explosion box.  I think that this will be one of our projects for our monthly mission get together on Oct.28th. I just thought that they were so cute i couldn't resist trying them.  I found the tealights at the dollar tree 3/$1. What a great deal! I was thinking that they would make great token Birthday cakes and since it is fall that it should be fall colors. The paper that i used is from DCWV and Amber Autumn stack. I used  leaf and branch punches for the top of the cake, a scalloped circle punch and a Spellbinders leaf die for the card. I used Orange stickles around the Leaf and Red grosgrain ribbon around the box.
