Class Gift Candles

Hello Everyone

Today's project is the 3D item I am teaching at my November classes. Although I have done stamped candles before, this was my first time making stamped tea-lights and I was pleased with how easy they are to make. No need for wrapping in baking parchment, I just stamped on to punched circles of tissue paper and heated them onto the candles with a head gun.


We made the boxes in Early Espresso, which goes very well with the blues of Pacific Point and Baja Breeze. We used a selection of Christmas stamps including Season of Joy, Serene Snowflakes and Contempo Christmas.

Back soon with my other class projects for this month.

  2. Love them Elizabeth, did you work the size out for the box yourself or is there a tutorial you could point us to?

  3. I just made up the sizes Helen. You can make 2 from a standard sheet of cardstock. I think they were an inch high and two inches across. :)

  13. A great gift project and I know I have a bag of these somewhere that I picked up at Ikea. Time to go hunting.

    I do hope that you'll post your convention swap card soon. I'd love to see what I missed. There were so many people there and such lovely swaps but I'm so sorry that I missed swapping with some of my favourite bloggers. And yes I'm planning on going to Paris so please save a swap for me!
