GIU Day 5


Good Morning!
Today is the last day as a GIU girl!  My last project that I am showcasing is a candle.  This was so much fun to do!  I bought a candle from the local dollar store since they melt a little easier.  The stamp I used is from Gina K. Designs line from Unity https://www.unitystampco.com/shop/only-you/. I stamped an image on white tissue paper and then cut out the image as close to the lines as I could.  Next I placed the image where I wanted it to be on the candle and used wax paper to wrap and hold the image in place.  I made sure the wax paper was long enough so I could hold onto it on the back side to protect my hand from the heat of the heat gun.  Next, turn on the heat gun and you will see the wax start to melt and the image will become a little darker.  This is the wax melting over the image.  Once you can’t see the paper lines anymore, slowly pull away the waxed paper.  If the edge of the tissue paper is still visible, just heat up the image and melt again.  These would make amazing gifts.





Please comment below and let me know what you think!  There will be 2 random winners picked from the comments on my blog for the week to win 25 stamps from Unity!  It was fun sharing all my projects with you this week!
