Valentine-ish Votive Holder

So I've had a set of clear glass square votive holders for forever. You know the ones, they are at every dollar store in the United States. Normally I'd use them at Christmastime, but I wanted to figure out another use for them.

I had some scrap pieces of scrapbook paper with a cute Valentine feel, so I used the scraps and made the above cute little votive holder. I simply Mod Podged the pieces directly to the votive holder, simple as pie.

I had a beaded candle ring that wasn't being used so I set the votive holder on top and it makes it pop all the more. Super simple, super cheap and that's the way I like it.

Word of caution, see how you can see the barcode from the scrapbook paper faintly above? Make sure you don't use that part of the scrapbook paper since when it's lit the paper takes on a bit of a transparent quality. But on the other hand, don't you love how the solid white back of the paper looks on the inside? Makes it look almost like cased glass to me.

You could make many variations for different holidays. What a great way to use up extra scrapbook paper too!
