Christmas Gifts

This is called being prepared
My daughter was given some smellies for her birthday and they came in a round container
As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for a Christmas Candle
I covered the container in Christmas paper I brought in the bargain bin at Hobbycraft
Cutting circles for the top and bottom using my spellbinder dies
I then made a matching tag
The candle was decorated using a rubber stamp I won and the 
sentiment was a stamp that came free with a magazine
I stamped them onto the tissue paper and coloured the image with my promarkers
I then used my heat gun to melt the tissue paper into a vanilla candle
Although it does not show on the photo I have also added some glitter
Well it Christmas!

This is for the following challenges

Thanks for looking
