How Sweet It Is To Be Loved Candle

Candles are so romantic on Valentine's Day and I couldn't help but make a special one to have for the day. I started out by getting a Yankee Candle, one of the large jars and of course the We R Memory Keepers Love Struck Collection to create with.
It is amazing that a 12 inch piece of paper won't fit around a jar, so to fix that I made a corset for it. There is always one way to make a piece of paper work. I added some fabulous Maya Road Flower Ribbon to the top of the jar to give it that vintage feel.
Do you notice the sewing, it is done with the We R Memory Keepers Easy Sew Scallop tool and some blue floss to stitch with. If you haven't used this tool it is super easy to use.
I added an accordion flower along with a die cut from the Love Struck pieces to the front of my jar. Using a Tim Holtz stick pin and another die cut along with a ribbon bow to finish off the front of the jar.
And of course to finish off the jar I had to add a little Cupid strip along withe some clear bling. I hope you enjoy my Valentine Candle and try making one for yourself. If you do stop by and let me know I would love to see it. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!!! Pammejo
