I’m continuing my theme of projects made with the fabulous Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.
Today I’ve used some of the stamps from the set included in the product medley to decorate this candle…
This is a fun technique where you stamp your images on white tissue paper, wrap this around your candle and then cover it with wax paper and heat it gently with a heat gun. This melts the wax from the wax paper which seals the tissue paper to your candle. You just need to be careful that you move your heat gun on as soon as your design shines through the melted wax and before the candle starts to melt.
Just check out YouTube if you want to see it in action, there are tons of tutorials to choose from!
Before I started stamping my design I measured the circumference of my candle and cut a piece of tissue paper to fit.
I stamped the trees from the Most Wonderful Time in various green inks (see the product list below) with the large one in the middle and the smaller ones either side.
Top Tip: Use Grid Paper to make sure your design is straight and to protect your work surface from the ink that will go through the tissue paper.
I also stamped ‘O Christmas Tree’ 3 times above the trees in Real Red ink. I stamped the small stars on the large tree and the big star above it with Daffodil Delight ink.
I trimmed off any excess tissue paper before wrapping it around the candle and applying the wax from the wax paper.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. I’ve listed the Stampin’ Up! products I’ve used below. You can click on any of the links to start shopping.
