DIY: Galentine's Day Assorted Flavors Box

Updated: Mar 29, 2019


We LOVE Valentine's day, so this year the girlfriends and family are getting Custom Assortments of our Mini Amber Candles in scents that remind me of moments or travels with them for a super meaningful and personal touch. Fragrances like Sunday Brunch, Earl Grey, Summer Solstice, Dusk Meadow, Espresso Stout and Peach Tea & Mint make up great assortments for your Galentine! Mostly because they have very relatable names that can be linked to memories, but maybe you once got lost in the Redwood forest with your bestie and want to include our Avenue of the Giants fragrance in your assortment! We spruced up some plain kraft paper boxes from the craft store with an easy minimalist painting effect and added some twine and leather roping like a too-cool-for-school modern box of assorted chocolates!

We spotted these cute little boxes at our local craft store and couldn't pass them up!

6 mini amber jar candles fit perfectly in a rectangular box that's 6"L x 3.75"W x 2.5"H and that's what our 'flavor insert' rectangle template will fit. We also found these adorable 4.5" wide heart shaped box that fits 3 little candles!
