Entry for the Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge

I made this for the challenge over at the cricut circle magazine. It is a card with tealight holder.

Directions are coming.

Okay here are the instructions, the original instructions were for the Crafters Companion Boxer but I realized that I needed to have the other piece to the Crafters Companion so I adjusted them to work with the scor-pal.

You start with a piece of 12x9 cardstock and score on the 3/4 mark on both the long ends (you need to flip the paper), then turn the paper to the short side and score at the 1/2, 1 1/4, 2 3/4 and 3 1/2, fold the 3 1/2 score line and put the folded side up against the left side of the scoring board and score at the 5 inch mark. Now fold every score mark.
With the paper facing the long way and the side with the score marks to your right cut the 4th score mark up to the horizontal line and the cut down the horizontal line ( to form a L). Now on every short line cut into notches (cut on the line then a little on each side to form small triangles. Bring the score back out and put the side with the notches to the edge of the score board (left), now you will score inside the center panel at 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 (go a little into the center before starting to score, don't score all the way to the edge). Turn the paper and put up against the edge and score at 1 inch turn and then score at 1 inch again, they should connect to make a rectangle. Cut the rectangle you just made with a crafts night. Next cut a piece of acetate to fit the window (sorry i don't have the measurements) and tape or glue to the card. After you put the acetate in, fold the piece with acetate over and glue down (put glue on the last panel) to make the box for the tea lights. Close and glue one end and insert the candles and close the other end.
For the front card part, cut one piece of paper to 3 1/4x7 and one for 3x6 3/4 and the layer and attach then decorate as you wish.

I tried to write the directions the best I could. If something does not make sense please email me your question.

Thanks for looking.
