Anything But A Card

Good morning lovely readers!
It's time for a new challenge at Crafting For All Seasons.
The theme this time is

I've decorated a candle. I used an image from our sponsor
Robyn's Fetish he's called Carl The Snowman cute huh!
I printed the image onto some tissue paper, coloured it with Flexmarkers
then cut around it & placed it on the candle. I then wrapped a length
of greaseproof paper around it & heated with my heat gun, starting at
the edges & working my way into the middle until the tissue paper was
covered with a layer of wax.
I then added some Washi Tape, silver peel off star borders & stars from 
my stash. I've had them for years & years! 
I made a little base from some card decorated with Washi Tape,then placed in a bag
which I closed together with more tape. I also added a little gift tag.

Here's a closer look at the candle without it's packaging.
Thanks for looking & I hope you can join us for the
