IHP Challenge: Lights All Aglow

It's that time again ~ the i{heart}papers monthly design team challenge.  This month the theme is Lights All Aglow & I can't wait to see what everyone on the team came up with.  I went shopping for a little inspiration and found these pretty tea light candle holders at Michael's and since I was working with paper, I decided to purchase some flame-less tea light candles as well.  I'm not much of a candle person because I'm terrible about remembering I have them lit ~ therefore, the flame-less candles are perfect for me!

I used one of the pretty patterns in the paper stack from Basic Grey's Jovial Christmas line.  I used it on the snowflakes (from my Cricut) and on the coaster mats for the candles.  For the coaster mats, I used my Eyelet & Classic Circle Nestabilities.  And then for the finishing touches I added the beautiful Pom Pom Trim on each candle holder from Maya Roads.  I just attached it to the glass globes with the i{stick}papers redline tape.  And the final little detail was to add a Zva Creations pearl accent on the center of each snowflake.  All in all, it was a pretty fast project, but I think the result turned out really pretty!

Now make sure you go see what all the other girls created for this fun challenge!
