Altered Candles

I had a fun day on Saturday, just playing with Ideas I had seen on YouTube. I'm not sure exactly who inspired me, but there are several who have videos. I recycled some old candles, I thought this was a good way to give them a facelift. I used the Fresh Cuts Stamps Set (IBC #111634, p.107, $21.95) and Always Artichoke (IBC #105243, p.157, $7,50). I stamped the images on tissue paper. On the larger round candle I wadded up the tissue paper and then stampsed my image. In the closeup you can see the the texture it gave. On the smaller, taller candle I added a littl gold galaxy glitter with my 2 way glue. Then I put the tissue paper in place on the candle and held in it place with a piece of wax paper long enough to wrap around to the back and create a place to hold on to. I used my heat gun to melt the stampsed tissue paper into the candle. This idea will make great hostess gifts for my upcoming workshops and so easy to demonstrate.
