PTI April Blog Hop: Floral Fusion Candle

This month's challenge was to use tissue paper. Today I really, really wanted to make one of those cute poofy tissue paper flowers but time ran out. I decided to make a candle and card gift set.

Here is the tissue paper all stamped and ready to be applied to the candle:



I put the tissue paper to the candle, laid some wax paper on top, then used the heat gun.

(It's not perfect, but it's all I could manage with 2 kids crafting with me and a puppy biting at my toes.)




I made a matching 4x4 card to go with my gift:



















And here is the matching gift set together:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop!


Stamps: PTI Floral Fusion & Butterfly Dreams
Ink: PTI Spring Moss, Sweet Blush & Summer Sunrise
Paper: PTI Sweet Blush & Vintage Cream
Misc: Tissue Paper, Rhinestones, Flat Back Pearls, PTI Spring Moss Satin Ribbon, PTI Lemon Tart Button, Machine Sewing
