Dressing up a candle

I love to re-purpose and dress things up especially when we have all the items at home.
Here are my directions for a candle - you can get these anywhere.
First take the label off - mine was real easy - thank goodness!
Because mine is a 3 oz candle I cut the Basic Grey pp at length of 9" or 23 cm and the width at 1 1/4" or 3.5 cm. I ran it through the Cuttlebug and inked it.
Because I wanted this to stick very well to the glass, I used the sticky "red" tape. You can use glue dots or a jewelry adhesive I propose.
To decorate the top - I punch a 1" circle with my Creative Memories Circle punch. Added Prma flowers and a rhinestone.
Added ribbon and a hand made hat pin to the bottom base of the candle. And to finish the top, a tag around the Primas.
