Serene Snowflakes CandleDec 9th, 2010 | By Wanda | Category: Announcements, archives, Serene Snowflakes, Specials
This candle was another item that the participants of my Giftables class made. Most of them had never stamped a candle before so this was a fun way for them to learn something new and walk away with a beautiful gift as well! We used the process of stamping on tissue paper (we used craft ink). After stamping the snowflake images, we then sprinkled just a little irridescent ice embossing powder on them and heat set them. Then, we cut out the images and placed them face up on the candle with wax paper wrapped tightly over it (and around the candle to hold it). We used the heat tool to gently heat the image until it was a little shiny (indicating that it was melting) and then gently pulled the wax paper off the image. They all turned out beautiful! We added ribbon and a little bling (rhinestones) to the center of the snowflakes (the bling was the idea of the youngest class attendee – Sydney – the granddaughter of my friend JoAnn!). But don’t you think it adds just the perfect finishing touch? 😉 The candles were purchased from a local big box store – most all of them carry similar ones.
