Halloween Tealight Holders: "So...What's New?"--Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome back for the second day of the "So...What's New?" Blog Hop.  Again, if you arrived here from My Mind's Dust Bunnies, you are heading in the right direction.  If not, then you will need to go to the  TX Scrapper Mom blog and start the hop there.

Sticking with Halloween, my project is a set of altered tealight holders:


I found these candle holders at Michael's on clearance at three for $1 (can't beat that) and thought they'd be perfect for Halloween.  I used Con-Tact brand paper rather than vinyl for this project because of its price and because I like the marble print on the paper.  

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Chic and Scary Cartridge

Orange Glass Votive Holders
Black Marble Con-Tact Paper

I'd love for you to comment and let me know what you think of my tealight holders.

Also, I am offering a prize from my blog for the hop, but  you will have to read my post from yesterday (So...What's New?"--Blog Hop Day 1) to find out how to win and what prize is that I am giving away.

The next stop on the hop is the My Craft and Chat Cafe blog.
