Show and Tell: Stamped Candle

Take a look at this amazing stamp.

It's huge!  It's 4" X 5".  Guess how much I paid for it...go ahead...take a guess.  Nope, you're not even close!

I paid a whopping $3 for it at a second hand store!  What a find!  There was a whole batch of these beautiful stamps, never used, all for a fraction of what they go for in the craft stores.

The little ones were only $2, even though you can see the original tags.
I decided to do a super quick craft with this big one.

This seriously took me less than 5 minutes to make.  It's just a plain old ivory pillar candle.

I inked up the stamp, put it on the table face up, and rolled my candle across it.  Then I just added that little paper band that was from the original packaging.

So easy!  This would be great as a personalized gift for someone who loves to travel...like me!  So, I'm gifting it to myself.  Happy Wednesday Tamara, here's a candle just for you!
