How To Decorate A Candle And A Matching Card For Valentine's Day by Steph Ackerman

Posted on January 23 2021

Hi everyone, Steph here today sharing how to decorate a candle for Valentine's Day. 
I love candle jars but find them boring.  So I took some of the beautiful colors of Rinea Foiled Papers and decorated this jar with a Valentine's Day theme.
Start by tearing both edges of a strip of Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and glue it around the jar.  Cut Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper slightly smaller and also wrap it around the jar.  I didn't tear the edges of the gold layer because I wanted the contrast.
Next cut a layer of Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and wrap it around the jar.  Again, don't tear the edges.
I die cut a row of hearts from Ruby Starstruck then glued the hearts around the candle.  The 10" long die means it wraps around the jar perfectly.
For the top I die cut a doily from Ruby/Gold Glossy and adhered it to a Silver/Gold Glossy circle.  Then I adhered it to the candle top.
Since you can't give a gift without a card, I also created a Valentine's Day card with the same elements, but the doily was die cut from Ruby Starstruck.
The Silver/Gold Foiled panel was embossed with a heart embossing folder.
The card was created with layers of Ruby/Gold Glossy, Gold/Gold Glossy and the Silver/Gold Glossy embossed panel.  Then the doily was assembled and added to the center of the card.
Happy Valentine's Day was stamped and added across the card. Inside the card I added the strip of hearts to the right side.
To finish I added large silver baubles to the centers of the doilies.
Thanks for stopping by.
