you can also take a candle, rubber stamps, tissue paper, dye ink, and chalks or
colored pencils and do the same type of thing. They turn out great and are
inexpensive to make if you have some stamps already! The thing to remember is
after stamping the image on the tissue paper and coloring it in, is to cut out
as close to the image as possible, then using a heat tool (like a wallpaper
stripper or heat embosser) and hold it over the candle where you want the image
to go. Apply a bit of heat, press the image onto the candle and repeat. The
candle literally absorbs the image. heat until there is a thin coat of the wax
from the candle over it.
They turn out beautiful and make nice gifts.

Since we’ve been talking about making your own Christmas gifts, I
searching the interenet & came across flower pressed candles.
