Emma and I have been making Christmas gifts to hand out at school at the end of Christmas term, and what with the credit crunch this year it seems the right thing to do - and best of all they were really easy and great fun to do!
Emma attends a catholic school, so these candles, with tradional Christmas scene images along with a matchbox to match seemed just the thing.
We stamped and coloured our image - in this case a stamp scene from Joanna Sheen onto tissue paper to then be able to transfer the image onto the candle. When the image was transfered we just added some Twinkles glitter, and added a border to the candle which is actually a Martha Stewart design punch and some ribbon. The box is a template that I have used in various projects - anyone wanting dimensions - then, I will hopefully be putting up a tutorial for this with the dimensions and instructions!
Here is a close up of the image on the candles.
Some Winter inspiration!
