Celebrate with candles

Day 10 of  Stamp Simply Celebrates!   I have a candle and matching box to share today, but first  I’ll let you know about all the celebrating going on elsewhere:

It is great to be playing along in the Stamp Simply Celebrations.    I enjoyed decorating a candle and matching box for Joan’s challenge today.  I stamped three navy trees on tissue paper then used wax paper and a heat gun to melt them onto the candle.  I have a tutorial explaining how to make a box and candle  HERE.  The trim on the box and candle wrapper were made with the retired Pine Bough roller from Stampin’ Up.  The box and lid were made from night of navy cardstock, with panels of vanilla stuck on the sides of the box.


Stamps: Pine Bough roller, Lovely as a Tree
Inks: Night of Navy
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Very Vanilla
Also: Navy grosgrain ribbon, pillar candle (IKEA)

  6. So pretty, Heather! What a wonderful gift the matching box and candle make. I love the Pine Bough wheel and it looks so great in blue. Also, the tree on the candle–love that technique. It’s such a cool effect–one of those things that really makes folks scratch their heads, but so simple when you know how to do it. This is a fabulous, very giftable project!
