I love candles; they’re such a great accent to any decor.  With the range in colors, styles, and smells it’s easy to find something that will match any personality and taste.  This year I’ve been altering candles with scrapbook / paper craft materials and giving them as gifts.  One of my favorite items to use on my candles is either Prima’s Voila! Felt or Queen & Company’s Felt Fusion.  Both the felt from Prima and Queen & Company are self-adhesive so they are very easy to use on the candles.  With the intricate designs of the felt you can create candles that are simple yet elegant.  For the first candle below I used the Swirly Snowflake Viola! Felt from Prima with a few blue rhinestones.  I love the look of the black outline of the snowflakes on the icy blue candle. 


For the second candle I used Black Scroll Felt Fusion from Queen & Company.  Look at all those delicate swirls.  For the finishing touch I added a few small pearls from Kaiser Craft.


If you’re looking for a great gift that’s easy to make try altering an candle with felt ribbon.  The possibilities are endless.

Wow! I made the next cut for ‘Dream You’re A ScrapStar’ at Scrapbook Dreamer and I’m moving onto round 4.  There’s only 2 more rounds left and the competition is intense.  So many great ideas and designs.  Here’s my layout from round 3.  This is my favorite layout so far.  The items I used were: grungeboard, Kaiser Craft paper, staples, black background cardstock, and hand doodling.  We also had to use a non-scrapbook item.  The item I used was a piece of cardboard box that I tore apart.

I doodled the white scallops around the circle of Kaiser Craft paper and inked the chipboard letters, grungeboard, and piece of cardboard box with fluid chalk.  I love the look of the grungeboard here.

This is my hubby, our best friends, and I crammed inside a photo booth at an arcade. I have a fondness for photo booths so everyone piled in so I could get some photos.

Tomorrow I’ll work on round 4 entry. I have some ideas in mind and can’t wait to get going on my project.  Wish me luck in this next round.
