24 Valentine Candles

 My DS is raising money to go to Mexico in June to build a home for a family who have at the moment live in such bad conditions that their children have to live in a orphanage.  There is a group of them hoping to go from his school.  To help him raise the funds I have made 24 valentine candles and boxes that they can sell along with some chocolates they are making in school.
All the images I have used have been pre - coloured and are from various digi sources.  I then printed them onto tissue paper and used my heat gun to melt them into the wax each on is different.
 The boxes have all been cut on my electronic ecraft using MTC software - the bases are all just plain coloured but each lid has been cut from a DCWV paper pack each lid either has words of love or hearts on it.
This is them all packed and ready to be taken to school to help raise funds.
I am entering these candles into the following challenges:


Thanks for looking
