Quick, Easy and Elegant Christmas Candle

Monday, November 02, 2009

Look no further for a fabulous holiday gift idea!  This candle wrap is rated E ~ Easy for Everyone and is perfect for hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, holiday favors and more!

Laurie Willison designed this GORGEOUS gift and I can't wait to make more!  One of the most important details is the Burnt Umber Ink stippled along the edge of the pattered paper where it meets the candle.  Easily add polish and pizazz with this technique!

Laurie stamped a greeting on white cardstock, layered it onto a brown mat and then added brads to each of the four corners.  And don't forget that touch of ribbon!  Sassy and sophisticated!

Speaking of polish ... Laurie polished the back of this candle quite nicely!  She folded the paper and ribbon in about 1/2" before adhering down.  It leaves a very finished edge and the ribbon stays crisp and clean!

Candles are ALWAYS in style and this one is perfect for the holiday season!

Happy Paper Crafting!
