Just Us Girls #116 technique challenge...the candle sleeve

It's Just Us Girls time!  This week Kathryn is challenging us to create a candle sleeve.  Candles are fun to give and receive and why not dress them up a little as packaging or before you put them on display?

I used strips of 1"x 5" DP from Stampin Up! to wrap all the way around these votive candles from Partylite.  They are held in place with a single line of ATG adhesive so it will be easy to remove the sleeves before burning.  I added a line of liquid glue to the bottom of the paper strip and dipped the candles in mica flakes from Stampin Up! (thanks Elise!) for a frosty edge.  Punched snowflakes and pretty pink bling from Want2Scrap seal the deal on the these cuties.  Enabler alert...all bling is on sale for 99cents at Want2Scrap!  Woohoo!

Be sure and check out the girls from Just Us Girls this week and then join us for a little well deserved "me" time.
