Last Minute Holiday Gifts!!!

It's that time of year again!  Almost Christmas, and if you're anything like me, scrambling at the last minute for gifts!!  I try very hard each year to give handmade gifts, because what else would all this stamping and scrapping stuff be for??

I made up this cute, and quick, gift to have on hand for a last minute gift.  I took one of the many empty jars I have and created this candle in a jar.

I simply wrapped a piece of burlap around the middle of the jar, fraying the edges just a bit.  I used the Watermelon Wonder lace to tie over that for added color.  Then using the Flurry of Wishes stamp set, I stamped the large snowflake in Blushing Bride and the medium snowflake in Calypso Coral.  Now the medium snowflake you can punch out with the coordinating punch, but yes I did fussy cut the large snowflake.  It really didn't take that much time to cut them out.

Using double layer dimensionals I adhered the snowflakes either together, or directly onto the jar.  Once I had the snowflakes on, I placed an Ice Rhinestone in the center of each snowflake.  And for just a bit of added texture, I tied some of the extra burlap strings around the front bow.

I need to put a bit more sand in the jar, but the candle is hot glued to the bottom of the jar for stability.

Quick and cute gift for someone!!
