Love Candles

I finally got some mojo and crafted a little something. This is the first crafting I have done since before Christmas! Shocking isn't it?

So I created something new for my Valentine's Day decor.

This was a simple and quick project. Seriously, it took me about 15 minutes (if that long).

I started with 4 battery operated pillar sized candles, scrapbooking paper, red cardstock, and regular old tape. (I prefer to use the battery operated candles instead of regular candles as I just feel they are safer with children and pets but you could of course use real candles although I wouldn't suggest lighting them.)

Using a candle as a guide, I cut my scrapbook paper to the size of the candle. I wrapped the paper around the candle and secured it in the back with tape so I can use the candles again. I cut the letters out of red cardstock using my Silhouette machine but you could always use stickers if you don't have a cutting machine. I ran the letters through my Xyron Sticker Machine and stuck one on each candle and called it done!
