Hello all! I thought I would whip up some fun little favors that would be appropriate for a Christmas get to together. Now one of the very first things I ever did as a stamper, other then making cards was to make some candles for a gift. This is just a scaled down version of that using a votive size candle.
My ribbon really is a soft red but insists on photographing orange for some reason.
I used Stazon ink to stamp my verse on the glass cup. I practiced multiple times first using a more forgiving ink so I could wipe it off and do it again.
The best way for me was to place my stamp ink side up on my table then roll the glass cup across the inked stamp.
I then stamped the pine cone image on a bit of tissue paper and colored the image with markers.
I trimmed it closely
then gently heated it with my embossing gun
The tissue paper disappears into the candle leaving the design visible on the candle.
This technique has been around for a long time but it's still a good one for making some simple but lovely gifts. I may do something similar for all of my kids teachers this year.
Thanks so much Debi! I love making candles this way and I love how you put the sentiment on the glass! I will be making some of these for sure!
Please leave Debi some love and then stop by her blog to see all the other goodies she's been creating! Have a blessed week!
