My Creative Time's September Mini Release Blog Hop!

 
Happy Friday and welcome to My Creative Time's September Mini Release Blog Hop!  Even though this is a "mini" release, I know that you've still been blown away with all the projects that the team has been making!  Since this is a HUGE hop I'm going to get right to it!!!  You should have arrived here from  Miss Leanne!  If you just popped in to see me then please head over to the start at        Miss Emma's so you can have more chances for this month's giveaway!!!!  :)
 
This is a little candle gift that could be added to a "Boo Basket"!  If you've ever received one they are so fun!  This little project only took me 10 minutes to complete.  I told you the other day, I'm about cute and quick!  :)  So if you had to make several, it's doable!! 
 
I picked up these plain candle pack at "wally world", peeled off the label and covered it with the Fancy Frame die.  Then I stamped the new Halloween stamp from the "Just for You" stamp set on to orange tissue paper.  Next I cut around the sentiment (this took the most time), then heat set the tissue paper to the candle being careful not to melt it. 
 
Put them back in the box they came in, and added the burlap, hemp and tag!  Oh, yea I stamp "to and from" on the tag.  Easy Peasy!!!
 
 


 
recipe:
candle 4 pack

What a clever 'make-over' for the candle pack; from 'plain' to 'stunning.' Your oh-so-clever approach here has definitely added another layer of 'must have' to these sets. I'm convinced. Totally! Thank you for inspiring!

Christine said...

I love these candles and how you re-did the package they come in. I tried the candles last year. Just takes a little practice with the heating tool to make sure you don't melt the candle. TFS --C
