Candle Gift Set by Narelle

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Narelle has created a lovely candle set to share today.
I hope you enjoy it.
I think these would make a beautiful gift especially with Christmas fast approaching.


Products Used: 
We R Memory Keepers Bakers Twine

Tutorial:
Narelle has used a set of 3 “LED” candles that are battery operated, but these instructions would work on any pillar candles.

 Small Candle -
·         Measure the height of your candle, and cut a piece of the “Dream- Wallpaper” to be 2cm less than the height of the candle.
·         Ink the edges and wrap around the candle in the middle.  Adhere the overlap with x-press it tape.
·         Cut a piece of the “Everywhere- Correspond” paper to be 4cm less than the height of the last piece of paper, ink the edges and wrap around the centre.
·         Wrap the bottom edge with the pom pom trim and adhere with pritt glue.
·         Add the small “Flourish with a bling” vine to the centre, and a small brown bow.
 Medium Candle -
·         Measure the height of your candle, and cut a piece of the “Precious- Train” paper to be 2cm less than the height of the candle.
·         Ink the edges and wrap around the candle in the middle.  Adhere the overlap with x-press it tape.
·         Cut a piece of the “Everywhere- Mirrors” paper to be 4cm less than the height of the last piece of paper, ink the edges and wrap around the centre.
·         Wrap the centre with the crocheted lace trim and adhere with pritt glue.
·         Make a fan folded flower from a ruler strip from the “Everywhere- Mirrors” paper  (instructions can be found HERE )
·         Add a button with a twine bow to the centre, and adhere to the candle using Pritt glue.
 Large Candle -
·         Measure the height of your candle, and cut a piece of the “Precious- Motif” paper to be 2cm less than the height of the candle.
·         Ink the edges and wrap around the candle in the middle.  Adhere the overlap with x-press it tape.
·         Cut another piece of the “Precious-Motif” paper to be 4cm less than the height of the last piece of paper, ink the edges and wrap around the centre (with the reverse side showing)
Cut the glittered journal block from the .”Dream- stamped” paper and adhere in the centre of the candle
