Today’s project is another in a series of quick, easy, small, inexpensive gifts. The white, unscented candle came from the Dollar Tree (my local store where everything costs $1.)

 

Here’s what I made:


mica-candle-d
mica-candle-c

mica-candle-a

 

Here’s how I did it:

I cut five 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ pieces of Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper, and glued them to the sides and top of a White Gift Box.

I took a length of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and colored it with a Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker. I let it dry for a while before tying it around the box.

I put 3 strips of Tear & Tape adhesive around the candle, then rolled it in Mica Flakes. I brushed off any loose flakes with my fingers.

I put some blue tissue (also from the Dollar Tree) in the box, put in the candle, and tied the ribbon around the box.

That’s it!

Note: I didn’t use the clear acetate sleeve that comes with the box, so I’ll save it to use with another project.

 

Here’s what I used:

 

Thanks for stopping by today, and Sweet Stamping!
