Since we are "building" houses this week our Saturday Challenge was to make a small hostess gift. Here is what I came up with, a So Sweet Candle!
I took a cheap white candle (about 3 inches in diameter and height) and gave it a cute belly band decorated with gumdrops and peppermint candies that I made! The actual belly band are "Graham Crackers" that I made from paper. (hint hint...if you like this, you will LOVE my house...what are you waiting for...go subscribe!) The tag was made by punching out Crumb Cake card stock using the Decorative Label punch and then adhering the "So Sweet" sentiment that I die cut using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet and my Big Shot.
Here is a closeup of the candies. I used the Large Oval punch to get the Gumdrop shapes which I punched out of the colored card stock that I embossed using a sparkly mix of clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds. I put the candies on the Graham Cracker using dimensionals.
