Decorated Candles

Today, I thought I'd share with you some little candles that I decorated recently. A friend of a friend, who saw one of my "cakes" asked me to make two for her. One was for a birthday and the other I think was for cheering someone up. So, I set out and make FOUR cakes, because I wanted to give her a choice of colors/themes. She bought all four candles!

For the first one, I cut out the strawberry from the Berry Blossoms designer series paper. I added it to the top of the candle with a piece of 1/8" Old Olive taffeta ribbon. It matches the taffeta around the edge as well.

This next candle is decorated with the Cheerful Treat (appropriate name!) designer series paper that is only available to qualifying hostesses. I added bling with some basic rhinestones on top of my teeny flowers punched from coordinating card stock using the Boho Blossoms and Itty Bitty Shapes punches. The tags are from Tiny Tags and are punched out with the Jewelry Tag.

I think this third candle is my favorite! It uses the Flirtatious Specialty designer series paper. I used pearls to accent the same flowers as candle #2, and the same tag punch with Tiny Tags and Pennant Parade stamps. The top edge of the side was decorated using 1/4" Pretty In Pink grosgrain ribbon that I "ruffled" with Sticky Strip. The tags were secured using Whisper White baker's twine.

This was the most fun candle and I used the Big Top Birthday designer series paper. I punched a piece of Daffodil Delight (Patterns Designer Series Stack) using the Floral Fusion die to slip around the flame. Another Tiny Tags sentiment tied on with Cherry Cobbler/White baker's twine and you are finished!

I hope you enjoyed my candles. If you would like to purchase a candle that I design using your color scheme or theme, please email me and I would be happy to fill your order.

I look forward to reading your comments!
