Giftboxed large beehive candle
The old-fashioned skep or beehive shaped candle was one of my first styles and is one of my most popular. Both decorative and functional, the pure beeswax candle is further enhanced by being presented in a handmade giftbox. (Like the skep candles, when I began to make them, the giftboxes proved quite fiddly to start with and rarely ended up square, however, I've now had plenty of practice and I hope that you agree that they look pretty good!)
By the way, the candles take 10 minutes to handroll, the boxes about 5 minutes to fold (origami), the candles burn for around 5.5 hours and they measure approximately 3 inches or 7 centimetres tall.
Finally, please note that due to the handmade and individual nature of the giftboxes, paper patterns may vary to those shown. (I use a lot of paper and constantly change styles/patterns/colours, but this is what makes them unique gifts!)
