France Papillon #2 Candle Holder ....

For this one, I forced myself to keep it simple! (Trust me, that wasn’t easy!)

1)      Using a piece of Cut N Dry, I lightly painted a 15 x 15 Artemio Wood Substrate Frame with Hey Pesto and Holly.

2)      Once dry, which was almost immediately, I added a bit of Honey Dew, taking the excess back off with a baby wipe.

3)      Using the same Honey Dew Fresco Paint, I stampedMini 62 on the frame.

4)      After running a sanding grip over the edges, I applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

5)      I stamped the same stamp again with Honey Dew Fresco, but this time on a ripped piece of Crunchy Waxed Kraft Paper

6)      I placed some wire around a candle to hold the paper in place and placed the candle in the wood frame. I finished it off with some real moss. Et voilà!

If you make one for yourself (or as a gift) don’t forget to take away the wire and the Crunchy Waxed Paper before you light the candle, and if like me you take a vanilla scented candle your scraproom will smell deliciously good!
