Wood Sheets Lattice Votive

Hey there! Long time, no see, right? Sorry about that... Last week was a wee bit crazy 'round here. I had a stamp-a-stack to prepare for and I was lucky enough to attend the Milwaukee Regional on Saturday, so I had trades to make. This week will be busy, too, but I do have some projects to share. Today's project features the Wood Sheets found on page 158 of the IBC. They are easy to miss, since they are tucked in with lots of other cardstock, but don't let them pass you by! These wood sheets are beautiful and really fun to use!

We made this project at our last Big Shot class. I used the Lattice Die to cut the wood sheets and I tied the corners together using Chocolate Chip satin ribbon - easy peasy! The candle holder uses three of the Lattices, and you can get one votive holder out one Wood Sheet. Everyone oohed and aahed over this project and several ladies placed orders so they could make some more. One woman was planning to make a whole bunch for table decorations for an upcoming wedding.

Hope your week is off to a great start! I'll see you tomorrow with another fab project to share. 'Bye for now!
