I saw a fun tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers for decorating a flameless tealight candle up as a cake and fell in LOVE with the idea!!
I made up this birthday cake candle (with a little Valentine Theme perfect for a February birthday) to show off at our last team get together.
The SCS Tutorial is located here - I found that the measurements were not quite right for my tealight so I just modified them to work with what I had!
I used the Love Patterns Paper and the Bitty Buttons included in the Filled with Love Bundle (Promo ends on January 24th) to decorate the cake.
The little red flowers were created by punching out a flower from one of the punches matching the Bitty Buttons. I sprayed the paper with Stampin' Mist and then scrunched it up. Once they were dry I layer a few together and glued them using Tombow Multi Glue. It's really easy to make flowers using this technique - but beware - when you're using red paper it does tend to bleed a little - make sure you have scrap under the paper while you're working with it and enjoy those - Inky Fingers!!
Don't forget the Filled with Love promo is ending in a few days - if you want to grab some pink and red designer paper for your Valentines don't forget to jump over to my Stampin' Up! store and purchase before January 24th!
