Now I had trouble with this, I have never used Vinyl before and then I had to try and find the Vinyl - anyway after I got the vinyl I decided to start my Christmas gifts, last year I had so many ideas for Christmas gifts but never got around to getting them done, so this year I am determined to make it happen. 

I took a candle, that already had gold paint on it from the manufacture. 

I added a ribbon and bow to the top of the candle. 

I used my Cameo machine - can I just say I love it - I love my cricut but I love this even more then that; which I never thought possible.

I used Birds Cards free files - I love her files they are so sweet and cut perfectly every time. 

I took a sentiment and a swirly Christmas Tree and sized it to what I wanted to fit on my candle I think the tree was 5 inches and the sentiment about 4 - I did write it down, but the crafty fairy has been and tidied up and I now can not find the measurements - When I do come across them I will add them for you. 

I need a bit more practice with them more so with the bow and the ribbon, need to try and make that Bow a little bit bigger but for now I am happy with the results 

(Please note - I do not know how the candle will react with the vinyl on when lit, please do not leave candles unattended - If you are unsure please remove the Vinyl first before lighting.)

Thank you for popping in and I look forward to reading your comments.
