Last Minute Gift Idea by Mandy C


 
 


Tissue Paper
Stardust Stickles
Candles (just cheap white/off white)
 
 

 
This is a very simple and quick idea for a last minute gift.

 

·       Take a piece of tissue and stamp an image on your tissue paper, using the matt side of the paper and your StazOn ink pad.

 





 

·       Cut out the images as close to the stamped image as you can.
 

·       Place the image onto your candle.
 

·       Take a piece of wax paper and cut a strip that is wide enough to fit the height of the candle and long enough so you can hold the wax paper at the back of the candle.
 

·       Wrap the wax paper around the candle and hold tightly at the back.
 

·       Use your heat tool and wave it over the where the image is. Be quick so the candle doesn’t melt. You will see the image ‘appear’ through the wax paper. The transfer is then done.


·       Rub over the wax paper with your fingers to smooth the candle and then peel the wax paper away from the candle.
 

·       The tissue paper will ‘sink’ into the wax and you should not be able to feel it.
 

·       Add Stickles to the image to make it more Christmassy. Leave to dry.
 
 
 
 
 

·       If giving as a gift, put inside a cellophane bag or piece of cellophane and tie with a ribbon.
