Hot, hot....burn, burn

I say that....(above)....because I think I burnt the crap out of my fingers a million times last night doing these candles. I love doing them so I decided to make a few for some family members for Christmas. I wanted to get them done early due to the fact that I have to send everything through the mail seeing how we live overseas.
Materials used for these: heat gun, tissue paper, SU! Snow Swirled stamp set, stickles, 3 different shades of blue SU! ink, and some jeweled bling, two different shades of SU! ribbon...oh and wax paper...can't forget that.

I found this little snowflake poem on the internet....I google everything and I just punched in snowflake poems and these came up!


I have done these before but I learned something new last night...you don't want to use the "good" tissue paper. It needs to be the thin, wrinkly stuff....I tried it with a pretty white one side was glossy type tissue paper and it didn't work at all.

Girl you have been super busy. Your candles are always so georgous. I love the blue on white. As much as I love traditional Christmas colors I think the blue and white is my fav. So pretty!
