Tea-candle cards

To fill my stand at the upcoming Christmas fair, I made some tea-candle cards. These are great, as they are easy to make and you have unlimited possibilities to decorate them, and you can easily vary the size.

I used some tea-candle of an average size, this means: the smaller ones (about 1.5 inches), most are even scented and coloured.
The bigger cards contain 3 of them. The smaller cards are not proper cards - they just have one big candle.

When I was shopping, I found some bathing tabs with natural healing essences - almost the same size of the big candles. I had to modify the pattern for the card only slightly.

I printed all the saying myself, as my stamps usually are in English, and I realised that, even though everyone speaks at least a little bit English, people here in Switzerland normally prefer German texts on Christmas cards.

I think these are great small gifts, something that doesn't cost much and are perfect to give someone you just want to say "Merry Christmas" - instead of the same "flat" cards you write each year. And I had so much fun making them - I hope I can sell some of them. Otherwise I have to give them all to my neighbours, to my husand's cousins...

  3. Thank you, Joyce! But know this, you don't need that much talent for these cards, they are very easy to make. And I think they are a perfect project for kids, with a little assistance from an experienced crafter, they would have so much fun decorating them!
