Alternate version with matching candles:

Alternate version in red:


  • Paper Adventures Birthday Candles Paper
  • Tan cardstock for base
  • Coordinating cardstock for mats


  1. Cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of tan cardstock. Half fold to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".
  2. Cut 3 candle images from the sheet. Images should be 1" x 2 7/8". Sheet is just a continous pattern of an assortment of candle images. You can choose different colors, or the same colors like in the alternate image.
  3. Cut three 1 1/4" x 3 1/8" coordinating mats. You have flexiblity here based on the images you choose. If you use a variety of images you can go with a dark brown to match them to the tan and make them stand out. If you use a repeated image like the alternate design, then use a color from that image for the mats.
  4. Mount candles onto mats.
  5. Using dimensional foam, mount center candle in the center of the card. By doing this one first you will only have to center instead of having to find the thirds.
  6. Mount the two side candles in the center of the remaining space using dimensional foam.
