Day 12: Celebrating Warm Memories

25 Days of Christmas Continues.....

I just loved this vintage image from Hearts in Touch, but what to do with it? While I was trying to figure this out, my mind wandered to the warm memories that the image invoked and I knew I had it! A candle!

I had never tried one before, but it was just as simple as I had been told. First, stamp an image onto tissue paper. Then, color it in as desired (if desired). I colored on the back of the image with copic markers. The final step is to place the image on the candle, cover with wax paper (I used enough that it wrapped right around the candle and acted as a handle), heat very lightly with a heat tool and remove wax paper. Hopefully, your tissue paper will be lightly embedded in the candle.

I guess I did it right! It's simple and I love it! I didn't even bother to create a wrapper for it. I thought it looked good just plain. Here it is:

Hope you create some warm memories this holiday season!
