Exploding candle box

ImageHi everyone I hope you have had a great weekend, here it was lovely, the sun was shining and we were seeing spring finally happening. Sunday was a day of crafting at a fellow demonstrators house Cayleigh of Cayleighs Cards what a lovely day and so nice to spend an entire day doing it without disruptions coming at me from all sides. We made this lovely exploding candle box and it was my first time of printing on a candle, who knew it was that simple?  So thank you to Cayleigh for showing me this technique and for a wonderful day.  The other item we made will be in the next post.  Cayleigh kindly gave me the measurements for this box so we can all share them….Have a go at making one it would make a lovely gift for someone, i cheekily gave mine to myself for the upcoming mothers day he he!!!
