A very fawny holiday - Stamp on a candle

Hi!
This week Lawn Fawn is celebrating a special holiday inspiration week full of fun stuff: projects using all their Christmas stamps and papers, videos, giveaways... Sounds great, right? ;)

Today I'm joining the celebrations with a video showing how to stamp on a candle. Well, when you see the video you will notice that you don't stamp on the candle but, ok, the stamped image its on the candle in the end :P



Please, visit Lawn Fawn blog to take a look on my video! I hope you enjoy it and you try the technique, it's pretty easy and it makes a perfect gift for Christmas :)

Tip: If you want to work with colored candles, make sure you use a candle completely made of that color. I've realized that there are a lot of colored candles that only have a bath of color. I only stamped on two colored candles: The red one on the video and the green one using And a Partidge for the Inspiration Week so I don't have a lot of experience but I've learned that the final result is better when the candle is completely colored, the one in the video has a bath of red, but is white in its core, you can see it on the bottom of the candle.

About if you can burn the candle... I found on the Internet that the answer is yes! BUT I'm testing it, I will share my inquiries with you soon ;) Anyway, never leave a burning candle unattended!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

Thank you!
Grisel, I forgot to mention, wax paper is nothing special, just the paper you could use to bake in the oven, super easy to find! :)
