Glittering Candle, Peaceful Wishes

I love stamping on tissue paper and
applying the image to a candle. Here I used the Peaceful Wishes stamp set. I inked the pine sprig with my Always Artichoke Marker, because I only wanted to use half of the sprig. I used my Close to Cocoa & Chocolate Chip marker on the pine cone. After stamping on the tissue paper, I wrapped it around my candle and then used my Heat Tool to melt it to the candle. I rolled the candle on wax paper as I applied the heat, constantly rolling the candle so it didn't melt too fast or too much. As the tissue paper turns clear, you will know it is done. I then applied White Liquid Applique, which Stampin' Up!® no longer carries, but I think can be bought at your local craft store. While the applique is still wet, I sprinkled our Dazzling Diamonds glitter on it.

I love this candle but with the tissue paper is the candle able to burn down?

Karen, I've burned several. I always keep a close eye on them. Most of the time the tissue paper stays standing because it has that wax coating on it. I just cut the paper off and continue burning. The candles always burn fine. Margie
