100th Post

Its my 100th post today! I can't believe it!!!

To celebrate, I thought I'd share my (finally) finished Halloween project. I used the baked cookies scented pillar candles from Michaels (totally bought when they are on sale!), and the papers are from We R Memory Keepers Spookville collection. I just love Halloween papers so much, I bought the entire paper pack...and the 8x8 paper pack. So no more Halloween shopping for me!

From one side, the candles say:

And when you look at the other side, they say:

The directions to make these candles are here. These candles were a little trickier than the ones I usually make, because I decided to make them two sided. So I couldn't seal the edges with the floral pins like I usually do. Instead, I put the seam on the inside, and stapled straight into the candle - and then totally forgot to take a picture of it. But, it worked, and you can't see it because the seams are hidden when they are all lined up.

I'm going to ship these candles to my mom. She and I have made them for different holidays before, and I'm sure she isn't expecting to get a set of candles now that I am in Chicago. I just need to figure out how to safely get them back to New York!

I'm also going to make myself a set too. Only, my candles are a really pale beige (mine are vanilla scented, because they ran out of baked cookies!) and I'm probably going to use different papers (from the same line) for those, I just haven't picked them out yet!

Well, I'm off to try making some zucchini muffins! Have a great day, and thank you so much for stopping by!
