So…what did I do for MY Preview Project? I made a lovely Festive Flurry Decorated Candle and Candle Mat for a centerpiece for the holidays! I have got to tell you…this is is SOOOOOO much more impressive in person! Everyone who has seen it has fallen in LOVE with it. And, it's not hard with using Framelits! I'd love to do this as a class for my customers, I'd include a package of Frosted Finishes Embellishments in the price since you use quite a few of them…but they sparkle SO pretty! Then they can take the rest home with them! Need to see if I can fit it in my schedule!
And…did you notice what I wrapped the candle in itself? I used the Birch Paper in the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit! I LOVE that paper…the texture…and I stamped the snowflakes randomly on it for more depth! TIP: If you want to burn the candle, I'd recommend slipping off the paper sleeve…or burn it down a little bit and add a tealight in the center so you can use it safely. Plus put it on a glass coaster.
