CPC Fun On Friday Challenge/Altered Candle

Good Friday Morning to everyone!  Hope you have had a great week and now getting ready for the weekend.  I know I am ready for the weekend.

Anyway, this week, for the Fun On Friday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts, I chose to alter something!  When I was deciding what the challenge would be for today, I saw this verse and it was the decision maker. Luke 9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.

So for todays challenge we will be altering something. You can alter a bag, a candle, a tin, a picture frame, anything that can be altered. The appearance of the item will definitely take on a whole "new appearance."  You can make a plain item look beautiful.  The object is to have fun.   That is why it is called Fun On Friday.  So get to work and alter something.

Today, I chose to alter a 6" X 3" pillar candle.  I added an image, some Designer paper and some ribbon.  If you would like to see how to add an image to your candle, here is a link to a wonderful Tutorial.  And, here is my candle!

With this candle, I used the stampin' Up! set "City of David" which is a retired set, but I still have to go back to it each year.  Once I adhered the image to the candle (see link to tutorial above on how to do this), I then cut a peice of Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper and adhered to the bottom of the candle.  I then tied a peice of 1/8" taffeta early espress ribbon around the designer paper.  And, you see what the candle looks like.
Thanks so much for looking and hope you like the candle.

Enjoy your Friday!
