Upsy Daisy candle

This is the project for October. At the last camp I found that there were a number of people that didn't know how to do these. You stamp the image on white tissue paper and cut closely around the image. Place the tissue paper on the candle and cover with wax paper that you pull tight and hold in the back of the candle. Heat the tissue paper/image with your heat gun being careful to not overheat the candle. You will 'see' the tissue paper 'disappear' as it melts into the candle. Fun and easy.

Thoroughly Thankful
