Hello. Welcome. Over at Marks Finest Papers blog the challenge this week is to use or decorate a candle. I bought some candles a while ago and there they sit, sad and undecorated, so I thought this might be a good opportunity to get a few ready to gift. Last time I did this technique I used my heat gun. Well, we know how that stands! Dead!! So here comes Mr Iron to the rescue again.
I decided Christmas will be here before we know it so I decided to use the cute little gingerbread dude from Marks Finest Papers Holiday Tags set. I stamped him 4 times on tissue paper and coloured with Versamagic Gingerbread chalk ink, red sharpie and white gelly roll pen.
Then I ironed them on to my candle.
I liked it so much I decided to decorate some more.
These 4 candles came in a little tray and I was going to cover it with gold paper, but couldn't find it. So I unfolded the tray and used it as a template to cut a new one from gold card. Much easier and prettier. I also stamped some of the sentiment stamps from the Holiday tags set around the side. Make sure you get them up the right way LOL!!!!
Now I just need to add a bit of cellophane and a ribbon and it's a cute little gift.
