Altered Candles


Aren't these candles the cutest? And they are so quick and easy to make.I made 18 of them yesterday in only an hour and a half! Katie Renz has a tutorial on the Clearly i Stamp website. You will need: candles, white tissue paper, wax paper, a heat gun, stamps, and ink. I found my candlesat the Dollar General Store. They are "Vanilla Cream" and come six to a box for $1.50. They smell wonderful! Even the sales clerk (a man) who checked out my purchase, commented on the fragrance! I found littlepumpkin votive candle plates (also at DGS) for $1.00 each. I met my twosisters and stepmother yesterday at the Cheesecake Factory for lunch.Yum! I presented each of them with a small gift bag with six candles and
two plates inside. If you don't want to burn or display the candles they make  great sachets to put in your lingerie drawers.
