Easter Candle and Card Set

Just wanted to share this cute candle and card set I made for my parents for Easter.  
Hand stamped candles are so fun and easy to make!  Cut a piece of tissue paper so that you can wrap it once around your candle.  Stamp directly on the tissue paper with colored inks or color in your image with markers. 

Wrap the tissue paper around the candle and then wrap enough wax paper around the candle so you can hold it tight around the candle with one hand and use your heating tool with the other. Heat one section at a time (keep moving in small circles to avoid causing te wax to drip) and you will be able to see a change when the tissue paper melts into the candle.  Move on to the next section.  You can unwrap the wax parer and re-wrap as you move around the candle melting the tissue paper into the candle.  I added some stickles to the ceners of the flowers once the tissue paper had been melted into the candle.    Easy peasy!

Stamp:  Outlines Rubber Stamp Company Ink:  StazOn jet black  CS:  SU white, lovely lavender, and mellow moss  Tools:  SU markers, SU eyelet border punch, wax paper  Accessories:  candle, SU seam binding, stickles, cotton ball
