Birthday Candles Candle Holder


My husband's birthday is this coming Friday and since I'm not doing a cake with candles I thought I would make something else...since you have to be able to blow out a candle on your birthday!  I found a candle and created a candle holder for it.  I used the candle box cut from Wrap It Up and cut it at 9 1/2."  I put it all together and added some yellow glitter to the candle flames.  I then wrapped the holder with some turquoise ribbon.  I cut four more candles from Wrap It Up at 4."  I inked around the edges of the flames with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  I then stamped four different Peachy Keen faces on the flames.  I adhered them to the middle of each side with some foam tape for dimension.  I stamped four sentiments, all from Scrappy Moms Stamps, on some light blue striped paper and trimmed it to fit.  I then matted each one with some dark blue cardstock cut 1/8" larger.  I then added those to the candle holder with some pop-dots.  I finished it off with some midnight blue Stickles around the edge of the "happy birthday" sentiment mat.  I think it turned out so cute and will be the perfect little thing to hold a candle for my husband to blow out on his birthday.  



I made this for the following challenges:
