Christmas Elf Candle

I decided that the new elf letterbox stamps and dies were perfect to decorate this small church candle to create some Christmas decor.

Stamp two of the A5 Letterbox Elf stamps onto white tissue paper in Black Soot Distress Archival ink.
Add some of the small sentiments into the boxes in the same ink.
Colour the elves using Faber-Castell Polychromos.
Die cut the images using the corresponding A5 Letterbox Elves dies.
Attach the elves to the candle using wax paper. Wrap the wax paper tightly over the top of the tissue paper pieces with the wax side inwards. Using a heat gun and starting at one end of the tissue paper gently heat the wax paper until the tissue paper sinks into the candle. Move the heat gun around the candle heating evenly until all the tissue paper has been sealed to the candle. Gently peel back the wax paper.
