Candle Time

Showing the candle which the girls decorated in class yesterday also a brown bag which was altered to match the candle.

We first fussy cut the image we wanted from the napkin then heated onto the candle with wax paper. Using this sentiment stamp with green ink we stamped onto some beige tissue paper then again heated onto the candle.

Decorating the bag was fun because we painted streaks with three different colours before adding some more fussy cut napkin with Mod Podge. Raffia string was used for decoration and also some red tissue paper.

Everyone in the class did extremely well and didn’t melt their candles but we had a few tense moments. In fact every candle looked amazing but because all the candles were wrapped in tissue paper and in their little bags it seemed a shame to unwrap. The bag with the bird and holly in the front is Kay’s, she used a different napkin.

What a rubbish photographer I would make. So sorry but one of the girls bags is hidden behind Kay’s.
