I have lots of photos to share with you today!
I altered a candle holder. I found it for 25 cents at the local thrift store!
Here is what it looked like to start with. Just a plain black metal holder.
The ribbon I found at Dollarama, it's 4.5" wide. I used a hot glue gun to attach it in strategic places on the holder, leaving it loose so that the flowers would nest into it.
For the part that holds the candle, I used black fun foam to build up the area, and then covered it with the ribbon. I then attached it to the holder.
I used Botanical Rose stamp set, I stamped the image using grey ink onto white cardstock. I cut them out using the matching Botanical Wings die and coloured them using various Distress Inks.
The base of the holder is done, now I just have to add flowers to the top.
I used the Classic Leaf and Open Leaf stamp set and the matching dies for the greenery. I tuck them in around the flowers.
