Wild about Candles:

Hello readers. I know it's been quite some time between posts again, but I do have an excuse. I've been busy creating throughout the week, projects for workshops and gifts for Lucky Door Prizes, Hostess Gifts and other little giveaway prizes. Naturally, I couldn't show you these items until they had been seen by their recipients - and making all this left me short of time to make anything else solely to post in the interim. The good news about the delay in posting, is that I now have at least a weeks worth of creations to show you over the next week or so.

Moving on, over the weekend, the children and I had HEAPS of fun creating 4oz Soy Wax candles. I'll be showing you the other candles in other posts, however, this is my 6 y/o son's contribution. He made a 'fruit tingle' candle and chose to colour it KTM Orange (the colour of his KTM 50 race bike). We've then decorated it together with bright colours that matched both the tin and the candle. I never realised how easy it is to make candles, and I think I'll be doing this more often. Thank you Melissa who's innocently 'hooked' me on this great and easy pastime. I'll definitely be passing the word on about WildCandles.

Supplies:
* Circle of Friendship Stamp Set.
* Red Stamp Pad.
* Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper, Real Red and Whisper White Cardstock.
* Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, 1/1/4" and 1/3/8/" Circle Punch.
