BEFORE AND AFTER-MOTHERS DAY CANDLE



My sister-in-laws and I always exchange a little something at our Mothers Day Brunch.  I bought a few candles from Home Goods. They came with a plain band, which I used as a template.  The longest paper I had was 12".  So I cut a circle from Plantin Schoolbook then added strips to each side.  Then I folded the sides to fit around the candle. I decorated the top with flowers from Flower Shoppe and Artiste . I ran the circle through my Cuttlebug using Textile folder. The sunburst and sentiment on the front side is also Artiste.The sentiment on the back side is My Creative Time on a Spellbinders die. The papers are My Paper Studio. I used Memento and Colorbox inks.
