Tea Light holder

Good morning!  I've been working on some ideas for Mother's Day and teacher appreciation, both will be here soon.  I thought I'd share this tea light holder I made over the weekend.

 I used the Home Tweet Home template from Creations by AR.  The DP and velum are from my stash.  I cut the butterflies with the Picturesque cart on my Cricut.  The flowers and gems are from my stash.

For this one I printed the pattern on cardstock, cut it out and adhered the DP over the top.  Then I trimmed the DP, adhered the velum to the inside and assembled the "birdhouse".

 Here's a view from another side.

Here is the top.
