I haven't got a card for you today but I do have something that would make a great gift. I picked up a few pillar candles from Asda on Friday (£1 each) and decorated it it to match the acetate cylinder that I made to put it in. The cylinder base & top were made from 2 circles and one strip of card (for each) and a punched strip of paper. A 12 x 5 piece of heavyweight acetate was joined at the short edges with red line extra sticky tape, then adhered inside one of the card circles. I decorated the top with a scalloped circle, plain circle and a layered hydrangea with a pearl brad. I decorated the candle with a sentiment on a scalloped oval, some glittery flowers punched from glitter card and another hydrangea flower attached to a ribbon bow. All the embellishments were attached to the candle with dressmakers pins & beads. The candle is not intended to be used, it is purely decorative, but if it was to be used then all the embellishments MUST be removed before lighting the candle. I wouldn't want to light it though, would you?!
