Candles In A Bag

Hi there, Just a quick post as I'm absolutely exhausted, I can hardly keep my eyes focussed on the screen at the moment, usually I get a bit of a lie in at the weekends but one of my daughter has a winter event on at horse's which means early starts on Saturday and Sunday for 5 weeks, its catching up with me now. Anyway, I made these little candles yesterday, I thought they would make lovely teachers gifts for Christmas and they are so easy to make. There are many you tube video and tutorials on how to make them but basically you stamp your image on some tissues/ tissue paper, cut around the image, place it on the candle, wrap some greaseproof/ wax paper around the candle tightly, heat the image with a heat gun and repeat the process if your using more than one image. You can also embellish your candle like I have by pushing brads into the centre of the flowers. I then popped the candle into a cellophane bag, added a little tag and tied with ribbon. Now you can make candles to match your cards!
I am entering these candles into the Cute and Girly Challenge which is 'Winter Wonderland'
