Fall votive candle gift set

I made these for SWAPs for my monthly stamp club.  I got 100 votive candles at Ikea for $3.99 and each mini pizza box holds 4 at 4 cents each.  I used some of the SU retired Witches Brew washi tape to wrap the candles, then set them aside.  Directions for the boxes are found on Splitcoast here.  Mary Fish also has a great link.  Mine is a bit smaller (think 3x3ish) and starts with 5 1/2x9 1/4 (Don't hold me to that.)  I stamped the base in Crumb Cake with Day of Gratitude.  I cut a circle in Basic Black and used an circle punch with Pumpkin Pie to make the pumpkins, inking with Pumpkin Pie before assembly.  I stamped the stems from Jack of All Trades in Versamark and green embossing powder.  The moons were made with Daffodil Delight and a circle punch.  I punched a partial circle then moved the punch in to punch a sliver of a circle.  I wrapped the box with jute twine.
I am going to make these again in a Christmas theme for my child's teacher assistants.  Each gift costs around 50 cents each, depending on materials.  Thanks for looking!  April
