Valentine's Idea with Pink Cake Plate

Hi In The Looop Peeps!! I am so excited to be here today!! I am Laura and I blog at Pink Cake Plate. My blog is a "jackie -of-all-trades-master-of-none" kinda blog!! I love to share recipes, crafts and product reviews!! I was on "Twitter" the other day and that is when I came across the invitation to do a guest post here!! In The Looop is looking for more of us to guest post here, so contact them!!!! I would love to see what you have to share!! 

 I love In The Looop website!! It is so full of talented bloggers with fantastic ideas! I am always amazed at the fantastic projects that are shared at In The Looop. I was asked to share a Winter/Valentines craft so this is what I came up with! You can search for crafts on In The Looop by using the Winter and Valentines tags!! 

 Here is what you need: 

  

 4 tall candles~I found mine at Dollar Tree 2 sheets vellum or transparent scrapbook paper 8"x11" Edge punch-this is optional Elmers CraftBond™ Permanent Tape Runner or any other double sided tape self adhesive Scrapbook bling Printer I have created the letters in PDF format simply click on the letters and save to your computer! l-o v-e The graphics I used are from Rhonna Farrar!! You can find more of her delicious digital art HERE! Step one: Print letters on your scrapbook transparent paper.

   
 Cut letters apart horizontally at the 6.5" measuremen.

   

 Take the edge punch and punch the top and the bottom of the paper.
    

Wrap the paper around the candle and secure in the back with the double sided tape.

 

 Now take your bling and add the sparkle!!! 


See how pretty they look!!

  

 There you have it!! Easy and pretty Valentines Candles!!


Total cost was about $6.00!! 
 Thanks so much for having me here!!
