Hope Your Day Sparkles Light Up Birthday Candles

Hi Crafty Friends,
I am SO EXCITED to be Guest Designing for Pear Blossom Press. They have the coolest light up products and more that are SO EASY to use! I am showing you how to create a darling light up birthday card using the EZ- Lights  and Yellow Candle Flames so that the candles glow bright.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you ever made a light up card?
A: Me? This is my first one with Pear Blossom Products and it was SO MUCH easier than others I have used

Step One: I colored my Greeting Farm Unicorn Bday Anya is pinks and teals to match my birthday papers. Then I die cut the cake out of Penguin Palace's I Made You A Cake Die.

Step 2: I assembled the cake and the front of my card, punching small holes in the candles so the three lights can shine through.

Step 3: I took out my light pack, unwrapped the three wires and tested my light after putting the battery in the center.

Step 4: I picked out 3 of the larger yellow candle gems (they come in all sizes!)

Step 5: I glued everything down so that the front of my card looked exactly how I wanted it, including the gems and the PUSH HERE Button which I decided was going to be the birthday present bag.

Step 6: I flipped the card over and taped down my button, making sure the button lined up with where the "Push Here" was on the front. Next, I taped the wires down and lined up the yellow side of the ends into the holes for the candles. I layered everything with thick foam tape to give space for the button and allow flexibility for the PUSH.

Step 7: I lined it up on my pink cardstock based and TA-DA! Candles GLOW!

Step 8: Since my sentiment says "Hope Your Day Sparkles" I decided to add some bling with the gems and hearts as a final touch.
