I hope your week is going well. I have been very busy the last couple of days. I was up and out very early today and I have only just got home.
The stamp I used for these two candles is from a Stampin' Up set called 'Come to Bethlehem' and regular visitors will recall seeing it on a card I posted on Monday.
Cut a strip of baking parchment to wrap around the candle to hold the tissue in place and to give you something to hold on to. Use your heat gun to gently melt the skin of the candle and watch the tissue disappear into the molten wax. Take care not to over heat the wax, you do not want it to run. The wax will quickly set again once you remove the heat.
I finished these candle by adding some pretty navy blue polka dot ribbon to the top and bottom and holding it in place with small silver pins.
