Kerney Whitman clever! Thanks for posting it. Now I need to make one!

Jessica O.

You never fail to inspire add more and more stuff to my already long wish list! I didn't think I "needed" the movers & shapers dies, but apparently, I do!

Great project, Jan! TFS!

Beth Norman

This rocks my world! Your stamp set is what makes me love this one!

Ad K.

Just ordered movers and shapers this weekend and can hardly wait for that SU box to arrive! I have some battery operated twinkle votives that are waiting for these covers to get made. Thanks for sharing these and the great video too.

Nan Goerlitz

FAB-U-LUS! I bow to your greatness...thanks for the video tutorial!


GREAT idea!!! Thank you so much for sharing.

Use a bit of blue painter's tape to hold the card stock in place. That's what I do with the Big Shot dies when there is a chance of the paper slipping. The tape won't damage the dies or the paper and comes up easily.


So cute! I love it! Thanks for sharing!

Jan Hoyt

I love this idea....just curious, did you hpapen to try folding the cardstock first and then running it thru so the die cut all 4 windows at once? I haven't played with this but I know it will cut multiple layers and if it's possible to keep it lined up with the grid paper that might make it go faster. You have inspired me to go down to the stamp cave and give it a whirl! Jan

Tory B

Love it! I, too am waiting on the Man in Brown so that I can make one of these. I made one the "old fashioned" way, but this looks like a lot of fun!

Jan Castle

Wonderful! And to think I have the Movers and Shapers and have not used them yet!!!! This has to be my first project....thank you so much!
Jan Castle

Claire Ventre

Thanks Jan - love it!


Jan - I love these votive holder projects and will have to share your ideas with my gals - with credit to you, of course. Just wanted to say that I use the battery operated lights in mine for safety - they work great and halloween is a great time to snatch a bunch up at a good price.


Desirée Spenst

FANTABULOUS! And worth the wait! (including the extra wait I imposed on myself by being too busy to read your blog until now!) - I'm going to scrape out some time somewhere to make one of these before my Big Shot class next week, oh yes I am:)

Judi Harvey

Jan, you are awesome! What a great idea and you are such an enabler! I wasn't going to purchase this die, but now, of course, I must have it! Thanks for a great tutorial!


Jan I simply have to say THANK YOU!!! You are fabulous and we all know that, but just wanted to extend an extra thank you for listing all the materials you use in your projects. Makes it so much easier for us lazy folks who want our projects to look just like yours. Just completed a copy of this project and feel so accomplished, thank you for sharing your awesomeness with us. We love you!!


This is a really cool idea. I posted the one I made my blog, hope you don't mind! Here's the link:

Dina A.

Great tutorial Jan..LOVE IT!

Marge Waskiewicz

Jan, I just found you. I knew of you, just never got around to see your great ideas. I love the movers & shapers that you did. I see at the top you used the eyelet border punch. When you were showing it on your video you didn't have it punched yet. Is it best to do it after you used the mover and shapers or before?
I hope I get to see more of what you do, I'm very inspired when shown the Big Shot. Love it. I'm still learning. It's my age I guess. Chocolate does help though.


Thank you very much for the tutorial! I was looking for one!
