Daisy Votive Candle Holder

This little open lantern or votive candle holder is lighted by a battery operated tea light.

The cube measures approximately 2.75" on each side. The inspiration for the layered daisy came from this framed daisy card.

The cut paper frame can be lined with vellum, or not.
