This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges our theme is Gifts from the Heart. I decided to make two different projects. The first gifts I made were made with the Base and Bling components from Close To My Heart. I needed gifts for a couple of people and of course, I had to make one for myself too! I love these necklaces and have made so many at different craft fairs and crops, but they never get old to me!
My second gift is a decorated candle. I used the Believe in Christmas stamp set from Close To My Heart. I stamped the Christmas tree image with Versa Mark onto white tissue paper, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat embossed with my heat tool. I then cut around the image, laid it on the candle and used my heat tool again to slightly melt the candle wax around the image. Doing this blended the edges of the tissue paper and attached the embossed image to the candle. It was that easy and very impressive, I think!
It’s always fun for me to give hand crafted gifts for Christmas and I hope these give you some ideas that you might use in your own gift giving! Please link up your Gifts from the Heart so everyone can enjoy them at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!
