I made this set of tealight holders for myself and then liked it so much that I decided to make a few sets for friends. I'm also going to sell them at an upcoming craft fair. I made the boxes for them and all together they really do make a lovely gift for Christmas. I think the teachers would probably like a set too. They must have hundreds of mugs by now :) . The photos don't really do them justice - they are very elegant in real life. Thanks for taking a peek and for your encouraging comments.
