 When is a candle not just a candle? When it’s a gift!

Anniversary Candle or Wedding Candle

Crafter’s Companion supplies: 

Vintage Floral sentiment Stamps
Fioral signature dies
Centura Pearl Cardstock
Co-ordinations cardstock pastels

Other Supplies:
Memento tuxedo black ink
Wax paper


1.Using Rockablocks stamp the sentiment with black ink pad onto tissue paper

2. Cut as close as possible to stamped image and place in position on candle keeping it as flat and even as you can
(tip) you can apply a little glue stick to hold the image in place, dab the candle with the glue stick and rub it with your finger then place your image on candle keep it nice and even .

3. Take a large piece of wax paper wrap it tightly but evenly around the candle making sure you have plenty on the rear of the candle to hold onto while applying heat from the heat gun, this will only take seconds and you can actually see the tissue melting into the candle.

Remove the wax paper, now you have your image or sentiment beautifully on your candle.

4. Apply a little Modgepodge onto the candle then add your Lace and string, you can also add any pearls or gems at this point too

5.The candle stand is made using Centura pearl card and is finished off using  flowers made with pastel co-ordinations card and Fioral Duo signature dies
