Creation Station: Christmas Edition

#stampinup   Welcome to the Creation Station--Christmas edition!! I know you'll be amazed by the awesome creations from our design team. This time we have 12 participants-- TWO of whom are Stampin' Up Artisans!

Today, I'm featuring a quick project that would make a great gift for a hostess or a mother-in-law or to keep for yourself as home decor. It's great for Christmas and can be carried over through the winter.

I bought two plain jasmine-scented pillar candles at my favorite store (Target) and decorated them for the holidays.

For the taller candle (6"), I cut a 3-1/4" x 10-1/4" piece from a Silver Foil Sheet.  I wrapped this around the candle, adhering the ends with Fast Fuse Adhesive. Next, I cut a piece of the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum in half (3" x 10-1/4", after cutting about an inch off) and adhered the ends together with Snail Adhesive. I wrapped this around the Silver Foil and adhered it with more Snail Adhesive.

I wrapped a long length of White Glimmer Ribbon and Silver Cording around the candle and tied them tightly. I let the Silver Cording Tendrils fall, but I tied a bow with the White Glimmer Ribbon.

For the shorter candle (3"), I cut a 2-1/2" x 10-1/4" piece from a Silver Foil sheet and a 2"x 10-1/4" piece of the same Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum. I adhered these as above, but this time I tied a double length of Silver Cording around the candle and made a fussy bow.

I also made a coordinating 3"x3" gift card to go along with the candles. I started with a 6" x 3" piece of Basic Black card stock and scored it at 3". I adhered a piece of Winter Wonderland Vellum with a couple of strategically hidden Glue Dots and a piece of Winter Wonderland Specialty Series Paper to a 2-7/8" square of Whisper White card stock. I wrapped a length of Basic Black Stitched Satin Ribbon around the Whisper White square before adhering it to the card base. For a finishing touch, I added an Iced Rhinestone Embellishment.

Here's the finished set. 
This would also be a great gift in GOLD because both the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack and the Winter Wonderland Specialty Series Papers have gold choices. And when you purchase the White Glitter Ribbon it comes in a 2-pack with Gold Glimmer ribbon! You'd just add a package of Gold Foil Sheets and you'll be all set to open your own Elf Candle-Decorating Factory!

Now hop on around to the rest of the blogs to see the amazing creations the rest of the team has for you!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! We'll be back in January with projects from the NEW Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs!!
