A Bunch of Candles - Xmas Gifts



I was a busy little bee today.  I made a bunch of Xmas candles for gifts. 

I used images from Digital Pencil Too and Magnolia.  I used straight pins with pearls on the ends to hold the ribbon in.  I used brads to hold the poinsettia and leaves.   I used Prima flowers, snowflake brads, yellow brads, and more pins to hold the blue and tan flowers in.  I used stickles on all the candles, and they all had my "Handmade by Lauren" stamp on the back.

Challenge:
1. HFOS - red

Love the candles. How did you do the stamps? Not sure where Drexel Hill is, but I'm about 20 minutes east of Scranton.
