SpringWatch 2018 Rainbow Unicorn Candle Gift Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – SpringWatch 2018 Rainbow Unicorn Candle Gift Tutorial

SpringWatch Giveaway for today – MYTHS & MAGIC WASHI TAPE AND GLIMMER PAPER – details on how to enter at the bottom

DISCLAIMER – Please do not light a candle housed in a cardboard box or package. Use this for DISPLAY or GIFTING only.

If you plan to make a project similar to mine, make sure that you put a label on it stating to remove the candle from the packaging before lighting.

There, phew! Fire Safety Drill done!

I wouldn’t anticipate anyone setting fire to this adorable unicorn’s head, but I needed to make sure that it was clear that this was a gift package only, not a candle holder.

But isn’t it gorgeous? If you want to get hold of these candles too, I found them on Amazon, and they are just delightful!

Obviously they needed a pairing with the Unicorn from the Myths & Magic Suite and it has worked well! Stampin’ Write Markers will always help with a rainbow.

The 1-1/2″ Circle punch is quite a snug fit for these candles, but again, it seems that the stars are aligned with Stampin’ Up! and it’s clever products and tools. I love it when my life is made easier!

Have a fabulous weekend!
