Hand made gifts - felt votive sleeves

Hand made gifts - felt votive sleeves


I made some felt sleeves for some inexpensive votives that I got at Target a while back. I paid 50c for each.

They are almost perfectly straight up and down, so they were very well suited for this craft project.

I measured and cut a rectangle of felt that would fit around the votives. Then I made the patterns in Photoshop.


  You can download the FREE patterns here.




I printed out the patterns and taped the felt to the backside of the pattern. I held the felt and paper up against the light to line it up.
 

Then I used my MM eyelet tool-kit with the largest hole size. I put the mat underneath the paper and moved it along as I was punching.


Then I punched, and punched and punched.


For the gray sleeve I made a circle pattern. I punched the holes where the straight lines meet the circle.




I taped the sleeves to the votives while gluing the seam with a hot (cold) glue gun.





These were each less than a dollar to make.
