More Candle Stamping

This is the other candle project that Denise and I completed yesterday. This one has a more everyday feel to it and could be displayed all year long. I think this one also turned out beautifully and I love the colors on this one.
This is the side view of the same candle. Isn't that image from "Just Believe" so pretty? I just love it!
Here are the step by step directions for stamping on candles. It is actually fairly easy once you get the hang of it.
1. Stamp your image onto white tissue paper. Color in the image with markers (if it is a line art image.)
2. Cut out the image leaving a small border.
3. Place the cut out image where you would like it to be on the candle.
4. Wrap a piece of wax paper tightly around the entire candle with the tissue paper piece in place.
5. Use the heat tool to melt the stamped image into the surface of the candle.
6. Remove the wax paper.
7. Add more stamped images, if desired.
8. Decorate your candle with ribbon or other embellishments, if desired.
Enjoy! Have a great day!

Great colors!


Lovely! Did you find decent tissue paper? If you get some types it won't work. Can you let me know where you got this, it worked beautifully! Thanks....

Hi Karen! I think it is just plain old white tissue paper from Target. It seemed to work wonderfully. Let me know if you want more information!
