Christmas Candle ~ A Gift

This is my second post for today....
I should be cleaning my house for my guests since we had to move
our Thanksgiving to here...
but I like to live on the edge so to speak..LOL
 
 
I saw this challenge at Stampendous Impressions....
to make a "handmade gift"
I have a "love" thing for their stamps...
I have been doing my best at "collecting" them...
Last year around Christmas time I picked this one up....
a Christmas background stamp...love~love!!
 
I decided to do the easy peasy "stamp" on a candle technique...
well, easy, but I always seem to "heat up my hand" along with the wax paper.
 
 
These make such perfect gifts...and I love how this one turned out!!

I am not familiar with wax paper stamping to decorate a candle. This is beautiful and now I must find out how to do it. Great hostess gifts. Happy Thanksgiving...
