Emma and I have been making Christmas gifts to hand out at school at the end of Christmas term, and what with the credit crunch this year it seems the right thing to do - and best of all they were really easy and great fun to do!
Emma attends a catholic school, so these candles, with tradional Christmas scene images along with a matchbox to match seemed just the thing.
We stamped and coloured our image - in this case a stamp scene from Joanna Sheen onto tissue paper to then be able to transfer the image onto the candle. When the image was transfered we just added some Twinkles glitter, and added a border to the candle which is actually a Martha Stewart design punch and some ribbon. The box is a template that I have used in various projects - anyone wanting dimensions - then, I will hopefully be putting up a tutorial for this with the dimensions and instructions!
Here is a close up of the image on the candles.

What a great idea! And they look lovely together.
This is such a cute gift idea, and the way you decorated it is so elegant, so adorable.
So pretty! How do you transfer an image from tissue paper to a candle? Not familiar with this.
Now that's one fancy Candle and what a great idea with the match box :)
Really pretty Maria. I might do something like that with Bobby. Think he'll enjoy it.
Love Lynne. X

Very nice gift and well chosen. I was reminded of when I was a young student at St. Adalbert's and would give a bottle of hand cream to my teacher for her gift.

These are lovely. I can't wait for your tutorial especially how to transfer the image onto a candle... I didn't even know that was possible:)
Can't wait for the tutorial, that is an awesome job on the candle. I had a box of matches similar to yours and I did altered it this Xmas and it look awesome too. I will post pics on my blog.
