Project-Personalized Wedding Shower Candle

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 candle
12 inch wide card stock 
Post It Photo Paper
Zots
Thin 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 :D
Have a great week~

I love the salmon/pink color. I've heard it's a universal color, meaning it looks good on most anyone.
