Paper Cubed Challenge--Votive Decoration

WOW...Where on earth did October go? So it's now the first of the month and that means we have another challenge from P3. Our challenge this month is to make some type of votive (candle) wrapper/ decoration. It can be any theme.......ENJOY!!!!!!
Here's what I came up with after I seen the sweet Miss Debbie's project....you have to go and check out her project....it's simply darling.........let me tell you, I went round and round with so many different things I wanted to make. But in the end, I ended up with this very simple votive holder with just the flip of your wrists....lol....all you have to do is cut cardstock and pattern paper to the size desired, and bring one end around to the other end and softly pinch the middle top on opposite end to the two ends.......here I just used a 3" circle punch to cut my windows and layered my paper together...I took a piece of transparency and used Krylon frosted glass spray (found at Michaels in the paint section) and lightly sprayed the transparency for my window....I also added a piece of white cardstock to the inside to give the light alittle more glow as opposed to a darker background.......Mr Turkey is from a new place that a Dudette had shared with us called Imagenation....

just showing the top view so you can get the jest of it....very simple and easy to make....I hope that you will all join us this month....Why not make that special little votive holder for you holiday decorations......So stop by and check out what the rest of the team has created....they always blow me away every month....Hugs from Charm City.....
