Don’t you just love the flower design that was on the wedding invitation for Chad and Stephanie’s wedding?
I did and of course I knew that the bride and groom to be must love it too.
I wanted something personal to add to my shower gift of white towels.
I came up with a way to add this design element to a candle.
Read on to find out how and see a celebration of my new favorite color…..GUAVA!
Supplies:1 plain glass candle12 inch wide card stockPost It Photo PaperZotsThin ribbon
Step 1: Scan the image from the invitation
Step 2: Design your band on whatever software you have that allows you to manipulate images and text. The image below is the design I created.
Step 3: Print out your design. I used Post-it Photo paper with a high gloss shine. The self-adhesive made it easy to attach.
Step 4: Cut a strip of card stock long enough to completely go around the candle
Step 4: Use Zots to attach the cardstock to the candle. These little adhesive dots come on a roll and are great to work with for a project like this. You have time to reposition if you need to.
Step 5: Attach the printed design and a little ribbon and you are done!

I like the dresses…I prefer the deeper, richer pinky peach as opposed to the orangy peach color. Looks great against the skin! Thanks for visiting my blog 😀
Have a great week~
Neat idea and I'm sure the bride loved it!!
We have a link-up party going on – Tea Time Thursdays @ Kreative Korner. I would really appreciate if you'd link up some of your awesome posts there. Hope to see you at the party.
I love the salmon/pink color. I've heard it's a universal color, meaning it looks good on most anyone.
Really great idea! thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday and taking time to post my button!
