Valentine Candles

I made a couple of candles for my son's fund raising for going to Mexico in July to build a house for a family, who at the moment live in a make shift house.

These have used pre-coloured images the one at the top is from Charmed Crafts and the one at the bottom is from Tiddly Inks.
For both candles the image was printed onto tissue paper.  I do this by just sticking the tissue paper onto a piece of  printer paper and it goes through my canon printer fine.
Once printed it just a case of layering it onto the candle putting a piece of greaseproof paper over to hold it in place and keep it smooth and then heat it with the heat gun
The boxes I designed in the MTC software and then cut them using my ecraft from a piece of A3 card stock from the papermill.  Finally I finished the boxes with some ribbon.

These are for the following challenges

How lovely, I'm not brave enough to try a candle but yours look great! i don't think I'm picking up your Blog entries at the moment as i didn't think you'd posted for ages... odd! Anyhoo, great to hear from you and to see that you are still working your creative magic, hugs, Jo x

Lovely candles and so nice to have gift boxes with them. A great gift idea.

Sorry I just need to say thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. The comment below yours refers to a nasty comment that was left for me as being above her one which would indicate you. It was not directed at you at all I have deleted the nasty one and that is what the reference is about. I am sorry I hope that makes sense, the nasty comment was from my mother!

Hi Nicky! Thank you for visiting my blog, I see you make cards mostly - so do I - I am also more crafty - not that artistic!
See you again tomorrow!
