WOJ Candle


Ever since Whiff of Joy's Design Team decorated candles with their stamps, I have wanted to give it a try... but I have to say...I was a little hesitant. Bev's tutorial helped change my mind. She takes you through step by step with pictures. It worked beautifully! You can also find the same tutorial at PCP.I know that this year, I will make a bunch of these up to give as hostess gifts and those "just-in-case-someone-drops-in" gifts! (Yes, little sister, you can request which stamp you want!) All you really need is some tissue paper, a white candle, a heat gun (I think a hairdryer would work) and some waxed paper. I colored the images with distress inks and was able to combine these two Lizzie stamps. I think next time I will add a sentiment. I am really wishing that I had ordered Katharina's beautiful WOJ Christmas sentiments! They would have been perfect. I will fix these bottom pics tomorrow but right now I have to run off to choir practice!




So don't be afraid of giving this a try. It really is straight forward and the results are just gorgeous!
