It’s simple to make but will wow your guests and family.  My glass votive holder is 2.5 inch tall so my paper was cut 2.75 tall to give it a little height over the edge of the glass.  The width of the vellum is 5.25 inches.  (Cut 2 pieces.)  I started off by stamping flowers all over the Heavy wight clear vellum.   Then heat set your ink if desired.  I added a torn strip of Tartan Green Felt Grandee for texture and contrast.  Then, stack the two pieces and poke holes with a large needle evenly across the sides.  I threaded gold cording into the needle and whip stitched along the side and tied the cord in the middle.  Lastly, I added primas, rhinestones and ribbon as embellishment.

Here is a view of it when lit.  By changing the images, papers and patterns, you can make this into any style desired.
