Mini Candles...

I love these...they are so cute!my mom is having her once a month luncheon with her girls...they are exchanging little gifts for Christmas...so this year I decided to make some things for her to give them...I made the hello kitty post -it-notes, mini calendar and this adorable mini candles! Michelle found them at Wal-Mart in the Christmas section for only $1.00! Of course I had to go out and buy some! I used DP to wrap around the candle, with ribbon and then I used a small glue dot to attach the snowman, reindeer and the santa...oh and also the snowflakes.
here's what they look like on top...I finally bought the Martha Stewart snowflake punch...I love those mini snowflakes and it gave my decoration the final touch...
I used the Sizzix diecut...this one is the reindeer...I also used the santa and the snowman! aren't these diecuts so cute! I cut the red nose out separate and I colored his antlers and his eyes.

here's a side view of what the candle looks like...

here's the snowflake up close...I sponged it with close to cocoa and used dazzling diamonds...of course you have to use the sparkles to finish it off! thanks to Catherine at Inksomnia...she used these adorable snowflakes and I just had to have them...you know me!

Happy Friday everyone! have a fun but safe weekend!

Wow Joy, you're on a roll! Very cute idea and it's great that you are making good use of that Sizzix Christmas set. I still have to make something out of that snowman.

OMG, Joy...where do you find all the time to make all these delightful goodies? Either you don't sleep or you have elves working for you! I'm so in awe of all that you've been doing! Your mom's friends will certainly be delighted to receive these treats!

I agree with Eunice...when do you create all these projects? I too am in awe with all that you create. It's like...you are non stop. It's gotta be the elves...where'd you find them, on Craig's list??? (hee, hee).

The candles turned out gorgeous. The dies are so fun to work with, huh!?!
