You can use a lot of care for decorating your table - if there are no candles there will be something missing. Or probably you are on the look out for a fast and easy made treat - for your neighbour, the teacher, the mail man...? I want to show you how to stamp on candles.
Stempelkissen oder Marker
white tissue paper
ink pad or markers
some wax paper
If you have a close look at the tissue paper you´ll notice that it has different surfaces: it´s smooth on one side and a bit more raugh on the other. Use the smooth side to stamp on or your ink may bleed.
Stamp your image on the tissue paper. For a colored image you can also color the stamp with markers so there won´t be any coloring needed.
Now it´s time to color your image. I am using pencils here. Please notice that the colors will be lighter after melting your paper into the candle so make sure you use enough color.
Cut around your image. No need to do this close to the outlines - it´s even better if you have some mm of paper left all around.
Now put the image on your candle and cover it with some wax paper. Make sure the wax paper ist big enough to be wrapped all around the candle and that you can use this to hold the candle - or you will burn yourself durint the melting process! (I know very good what I am talking about...LOL)
You´re finished - and have a beautiful decorated candle.
It´s nearly even faster to create a beautiful decoration for your table:
Stamp a small image and bring it on the top of a tea light. Wrap it with a strip of designers paper and put it on some cardstock cut in any shape you want to. Add a little bow/ribbon and some decoration and - voila. This is also a cute little give away...
