More Candles & a FREE Tutorial!

Can you believe I have NEVER stamped candles before?  OMGoodness I know- so deprived!  what was I waiting for?

Here are my Christmas versions from yesterdays post:




Below is the Tutorial on how to make these Cuties!

SUPPLIES:
Go to the Dollar store and Purchase tea lights.  I went to Walmart and got scented ones (FUN) 
Cardstock, matching DSP and Classic ink
Stamps that are on the smaller side.
tissue paper
copy paper
1-3/8 circle punch, and the punch you use for small brads
scoring tool.


Fold a smaller piece of tissue paper into 4 layers, sandwich between 2 pieces of copy paper and Punch with your 1-3/8 circle punch.  Tissue paper is to soft to punch alone. 

Keep the "tissue and copy paper" sandwich, punch the hole in the center for the wick.

now stamp the tissue circles with the images of your choice in classic ink.

place them on your tea lights.  

Heat them with your Heat embossing tool until the wax melts over the tissue paper (its pretty quick)
Set aside to cool.  repeat with the remaining tea lights

BOX BOTTOM:

4.5 x 4. 5 Square.  Score 3/4" on all 4 sides.  snip short score lines to form box.  adhere with sticky strip or mono multi liquid glue in the green bottle.  


BOX SLEEVE:

3-1/8 x 9.   Score at 2, 2-3/4, 5-7/8 and 6-5/8.  Wrap around box and adhere to make a sleeve.  
Embellish as you wish!!


My Supplies:  
Stamps: Sparkly & Bright, Tags till Christmas
Paper:  Jolly Holiday, Old olive, very vanilla, cherry cobbler
Ink: to match
Accessories:  1-3/8 circle punch, tissue paper, lots of fun tags and ribbon for bows
