We were looking for a small Christmas present that can be sent by postal mail... the idea came of a candle paper shade. It can be sent flat in an envelop, and is ready to be put together by our friends and family.
We prepared a few sketches based of the theme of the enchanted forest, it seemed like a lovely subject for our candle shades.
The general shape of the design had to be suitable for folding around the candle. It needed to look nice from different angles once rolled around it.
We used the laser cutter to cut our drawings out of a black thick paper and finished details with a craft knife. To put the shade together we also designed and cut out an interlocking system so no glue would be necessary.
