For the Cutesy Romantic

Just a quick idea for making your Valentine's Day (or any other day) just a little more special:



I picked up this candle ring and BATTERY OPERATED candle (Please note: this idea is for battery operated candles ONLY...please do not use with real candles/flames for safety's sake!!) at BenFranklin. All I had to do was cut a 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" piece of vellum...and stamp my images along the top border. Color images in from the backside of the vellum for a more muted look. Roll the vellum into a tube (and secure with double stick tape). Then simply put the decorated vellum tube into the candle ring and put the candle inside the vellum tube. Easy!!!

Stamps used: #4022 (Solid Heart), #5030 (Scattered Flowers) and #5008 (Ladybug With Flower). Here's a picture of it with the candle turned on:


thanks for stopping by today!!
