Candle Wraps Make Great Handmade Christmas Gifts!


This is a candle wrap I made for a set of short candle pillars. These are so fast and easy to make and they make great gifts! You can do them for any season or holiday and make them any size you need.

Directions: I took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and cut it so it fit around the candle holder with about 1/2″ extra. I rolled it with the Sparkle and Shine Jumbo Stampin’ Wheel (116542) using Real Red Ink. The Scallop Circles where punched out of Garden Green CS with the2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch(118874) and a dot of glitter was added to each scallop. The ornaments were cut out of Designer Paper (not sure from were because I’ve had it a long time) with the Ornament Punch(119847). I put Sticky Strip along the top of the Whisper White CS and added a strip of dotted ribbon the length of the card stock. Then I placed another strip along the side where the card stock overlaps in the back of the candle holder. The scallop circles were adhered to the front of the candle wrap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the ornaments were adhered to them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I put a piece of Hemp Twine through the clasp of a small, clay Gingerbread Man ornament and tied it around the wrap, on top of the ribbon. It only took about 10 minutes and I was finished! I hope you give these candle wraps a try.

The background on this card is tissure paper!  I’ve made several cards with tissue paper and wrappng paper this year.  It’s always fun to find non-cardmaking items to use for cards.  I’m always looking for other things to incorporate into my cards and scrapbooks.  The Santa is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Ornament Punch


I hope everyone is making time for yourselves.  This time of year can get really chaotic and can be very frustrating.  Just 15 or 20 minutes doing something for yourself (or just doing nothing but daydreaming) can help you remain calm, cool, and collected! 

Here are the four cards from Monday’s Card Class.  Hope you all enjoyed making them as much as I did!  I find creating to be simply relaxing!

Sack Card


I don’t know why I like using paper sacks for cards and scrapbooks so much, but I do!  This card from Monday’s class holds a packet of hot cocoa, tea, coffee, or a gift card.  They are really nice to give to friends or co-workers.  The end of the sack opening is trimmed and then it is stamped and folded in half.  Use one of your favorite stamps, color, layer and adhere to front of sack. Stamp a sentiment for the inside of the card, layer and adhere.  Woo-hoo, your card is done!
