Votive candle wraps....

I've been having fun with these candle wraps that I found in Hobbycraft....



Of course, I knew as soon as I saw them that they would not go near a candle in my house, I wanted them for cards. Pretty, intricate, lacy borders, all ready cut out for me, how could I resist?.....




I kept to the 'love theme' for these two cards, but they could just as easily be used for regular birthday cards as you will see tomorrow.....



Anyone want some of these? I have 15 in a pack for someone, and I will throw in this month's copy of Papercraft Inspirations magazine and the freebies that came with it (be sure to check out pages 54 & 55!) If you fancy these, just leave a comment under this post, I will draw a winner on Sunday and let you know on Monday

Three out of four cards done for my next magazine commission. I'm a happy bunny, hopefully the last one will be finished today, then just the dreaded step-by-step instructions to do and they should be in the mail by Wednesday. Result! See you tomorrow x

All the best to you.

  54. How interesting that you made these cards (which, btw, I adore). When you posted these candle wraps on Monday, I was thinking that I would never use them as candle wraps, yet my mind was racing with other crafting goodies that they could be used for. I think you have read my mind! Lovely cards! =)

  58. I can see how you could use these to make many different colored wedding cards, using the main color for the card base. Can you color them with alcohol markers? I see cutout possibilities for them too, just using parts of them on cards. What a great find!
