As you requested and I promised, below is a tutorial on how to make tealights all festive for the holidays. I used a large tealight (or "mega" as the package says); but you can use this technique on any size tealight. The original set of tealights I made was with the Scenic Season stamp set. You can view them HERE. For today's video I will be using the Holiday Lineup stamp set, and here's a couple pictures of the finished product.


Now you know how easy this is to do, so I hope you are off to make a few of your own.
Have fun!

Be sure to stop by next week for WATCH IT WEDNESDAY!

Loved the tutorial, esp the part about saving the packaging and decorating it!! Duh..Great idea!! Where do you find the mega candles?

I am a little confused. I have done this on the sides of candles but the wick is on the top. If you were to light these tealights won't the tissue catch on fire where the wick is located????
I am interested to know if anyone has made these and actually lit the candle to see how the paper reacts to the flame or does the wax continually melt and cover the stamped tissue design???
Thanks for any info you can provide. I think it is such an awesome gift for the holidays.
