Stamped Candle Door Prize Gift

Hi All!!  So sorry I have neglected my little blog.  It's been weeks since I have posted anything, but I have definitely been busy!  I'll have regular posts all week to show you what I've been working on, as well as some Christmas Cards Kits I've put together.  Have a great weekend!!

Here's a stamped candle I made for a door prize gift for a workshop.  I love this little Dasher stamp.

Stamped candles are so easy to do and make the nicest little gifts.  To make a stamped candle, white candles work best.  Stamp whatever image you want onto tissue paper - be sure to have something under the tissue paper because the ink will bleed through.  (Ask me how I know!  I had snowmen stamped all over my coffee table a couple of years ago!) Cut out the image.  This doesn't need to be perfect-just cut around close to the image.  Place tissue paper on candle, wrap waxed paper around it, holding it at the back, and heat with heat embossing gun.  The waxed paper will melt and adhere the tissue paper with your stamped image into the candle.  Put your candle in a cute cello bag and tie with some ribbon and whala-a quick easy gift!
