Stamped Tea Lights for Thanksgiving
I saw this cute idea and just had to make my own tea lights. I put 4 layers of tissue paper sandwiched between 2 layers of copy/typing paper. I punched through all 6 layers with a 1 3/8" circle punch. While still sandwiched, I put a center hole through all 6 layers. Then I stamped the tissue paper. I put the tissue paper on top of the tea light, putting the wick through the center hole. Then, using my heat tool, I heated the tea light until the tissue paper melted into the wax. I put some glitter on while the wax was still hot. That is all.
This project was so quick, I completed 8 tea lights in 40 minutes. Including putting it on a punched scalloped circle with the punched greeting.
