Embossing candles is nothing new. I think I was first introduced to this idea in Girl Scouts years ago. You can find tutorials all over the internet. But have you ever made your own harp candle (I'm not the first to do this either...my mom & a friend made them before too!)? I made some little harp candles as favors for the students who participated in the After-St.-Patrick's-Day recital.
Stamp a piece of tissue paper with embossing ink, using your stamp. Cover with embossing powder. Dump off the extra powder and melt the stamped area of powder with the embossing gun.
Trim the tissue paper around the stamp. Place stamped tissue paper on candle and heat with the embossing gun just until it's melted into the candle. Be careful not to turn the candle into a puddle of wax. :) (And don't burn your fingers either!)
P.S. Have you seen this week's video?
