Just love mini mental health breaks. Honestly, I take about three of them a day. A few weeks ago during one of my breaks, I stumbled on to a blog and discovered this wonderful idea on how to alter a battery operated tea light candle as a birthday cake. Oh, was my mind racing. For days I thought about this card and altered cake. When I left work on my early day, Friday, I ran to the dollar store and found these tea light candles 2 for $1!!!! I had so much fun with this project, but you definitely need to have some patients, good lighting, glasses and tweezers, too.

I used CTMH paper (Caboodle), Just Right stamp set, spellbinders, flower punch, Martha Stewart border punch and a very cute butterfly stamp that I had laying around and lots of glitter and stickles. Just love the BLING!!!
Now, when I made this I didn't have any tweezers to work with, so immediately after I was done, I ordered a pair from CTMH. So I'm ready the next time I make this project. Club gals, leave a comment if you would like to make this at class next month.
Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July.
