Things are slowly getting back to a familiar schedule for my household. You know, the cleaning, the GCs coming over and taking control the house with their toys and choice of movies. Always fun to watch the interaction with them.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I would have a tutorial on the tealight that I posted a few posts back, so here it is.
I learned how to make this tealight candle cake when I was at BenFranklin Crafts, so I hope Joy and the gang won't mind my creating a tutorial for it.
I love that these little cuties operate on batteries. It's a great project to use those left over pieces of scrapbook/cardstock scraps. You know us crafters, we don't like to throw much of anything away (I swear, I'm not a hoarder, oh oh. I'm not in denial either. I mean...Oh forget it).
So, here are the things you'll need:
|tealight, 1/2" by 5" strip of paper, 2 2" scallop circles|
|assorted flower punches and scallop punch|
|I like to have some pre-punched flowers on hand|
|double stick tape, snail glue, tacky glue, foam pad & stylus,scallop template|
|I love chocolate|
What helps for the next step is to make a template of the 2" scallop circle out of any type of paper. I used an expired ad flyer. I folded it in forths to find the center, then cut a tiny circle of about 3/16". Use this as a template to find the center for your frosting.
|my cream cheese frosting|
|On outer edge, cut tiny slits into scallop indentations|
|mmmm...cream cheese frosting|
|2 hole punches overlapping each other|
|just move the stylus in tiny circles or press stylus into each petal|
Aloha for now,
