Here is a picture of a candle I made tonight. I got the candle at Target, where else. I tried the dollar store but they didn't have any just now and I needed them for a class tomorrow. The words are from the stamp set faith, hope and love by the angel company. The holly is from the stamp set, Christmas seasons by the angel company. It was all stamped onto a piece of vellum with staz-on green then colored on the wrong side with prisma color pencils. After you are done cut the image out closely and then wrap it around the candle with wax paper and heat with your heat gun watching the edges disappear. While it is still warm gently pull the wax paper off and it looks like you stamped right on the candle. The put the poinsettia from Hero Arts on with a brad. Just push the brad through the flower and then into the candle.  Then add some red stickles and some hot chocolate from Sulyn. Great gift or present for yourself. You can even burn it. I'd watch out for the paper flower but the vellum just falls off as it burns down.
