When We Were Young

Good morning! I'm here today with a little inspiration using photos!
All you need is a Cuttlebug machine and a few other supplies to make this keepsake!

I cut a piece of cardstock 4x9 and used the Victoria(37-1916) embossing folder by Provocraft
on both ends. I also cut my photo and mats and then sponged all the pieces with
Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink. I used Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue to glue
the mats to the photo and proceeded to put everything together.

The 3-in-1 glue came in handy to adhere the cardstock around the candle! Just remember to hold it in place for a few minutes to help it stay in place. The two ends in the back didn't meet all the way, so I cut another oval and mats with a pretty scripture stamp from Our Daily Bread designs to hide the ends and give the finished candle a more complete look. After gluing the ovals to the front and back, I used a couple of rubber bands to keep the whole thing in place to dry for about 20 minutes or so.

Here is a closer look at the embossing.

And there you have it! I just added a little bow and some pearls to complete this project! I hope this has inspired you to make a candle keepsake of your own with your Cuttlebug!  You can check out another really cute idea from Ellen at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog

Thanks for stopping by!
