PTI April 2010 Blog Hop: Tissue Paper


April's Papertrey Ink challenge was to use tissue paper on a project. Quite a bonus is the fact that our PTI stamps arrive lovingly wrapped in tissue paper, so these could be "green" projects. I purchased an inexpensive candle, as we wanted a vanilla-scented candle for our home. I had previously seen various posts on stamping on candles, but had never tried making my own. I cannot tell you how easy/fun this is to do! Because I know everyone is wanting to hop on to other posts, I'll simply send you to the YouTube video I viewed before tackling my clean and simple project. There are several available, but the one I viewed is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twWA5G6oLP4
Hope you decide to try this fun stamping project that will also enhance the aroma of your home!
Paper: PTI's White Tissue Paper from stamp packaging
Stamps: PTI's Giga Guide Lines and Vintage Labels
Ink: PTI's Pure Poppy
Embellishments: Michael's Gold Flat-Back Pearls
