Over the last few months there has been some great coupons and sales on these Soy Candles from Glade. I have been able to get several of them for Free. In fact there is a great coupon out right now for $3 off 2 click here to print. I wanted to turn these into little Valentines gifts for my kids teachers. But I wanted to dress then up a bit, these will look really cute in a gift basket with a few other goodies.
I was able to make this in about 5 minutes, and think they turned out really cute!
I took the cardboard wrapper off the candle, and cut a piece of red card stock the same width and length.
I then used the cardboard wrapper as a guide to fold the new red cardstock wrap.
I then distressed the edges a little with a black stamp pad.
Stamped the image on a piece of white card stock with a Stampin Up Stamp. Then used a punch to cut out the image.
I then cut out a red circle just larger out of red cardstock, and a scalloped black circle out of black cardstock.
I used a fine tip glue pen to cover the little heart in the middle.
Then coved the glue heart with super fine, red craft glitter.
I then did the same thing to add little red dots around the edges with glue and glitter.
I then hooked them all together with the little red heart brads.
Tied a little silver bow on the bottom.
Then wrapped it back around the candle.
Attaching it with glue on the bottom
And you are done….how simple was that! Now I have a fun little gift to give! The best part is, the candles were free, and I already had the craft supplies so they were free too!
