Rolled Paper Candles Card


So we started this month with some lovely new colours in The Colour Collection Colour Palette. And I want to end it by adding lovely new paper designs : )

And I have 5, which I'll be adding to the Boutique this weekend. And a brand set of new sentiments too.


I've been busy creating with them this weekend mixing 'n' matching them with my existing Colour Collection papers. I'll show them all to you during this week.

But I've chosen this man's birthday card to give you a first sneak peek ... I've used one of the new sentiments on it. And if you look very closely, there are four of the new paper designs on the image as well. Can you spot them?

The rolled paper candles are fun and easy to do. I seem to remember they were popular to make a few years ago. It's nice to see them re-appear.

But if they're a new idea to you, I'll show you how to make them ... .

TUTORIAL

You will need ...
Scraps of patterned papers
Button Twine (for the wick)
Hi Tack Adhesive
Silicone Glue
Adhesive Tape Runner
Paint Brush, or something similar to wrap the paper around


1. Trim your patterned papers to the size you would like your candles to be. And using the Tape Runner, apply a line of adhesive at one end.

2. Wrap your paper around the handle of the paint brush and tightly roll it up.

3. Seal the end. If you keep the paper on your paint brush to do this, you won't squash your candle : )

4. Cut off a length of Button Twine. Apply Silicone Glue to one end and gently drop it inside your candle. Allow it to dry if you wish. Then trim it to length.

5. Using the Hi-Tack adhesive, apply a thin line down the seam of your candle ...

6. ... and position it to your card. Allow it to dry.

7. Repeat steps 1 - 5 for your other candles.


Easy aren't they? And very cute too : )
