Instead of doing a Wordless Wednesday post, I decided to change things up and do a "Looking Into The Past" post. This project was published in the September/October 202 issue of The Rubber Stamper magazine and even though the stamps are no longer available and you can find stamps all over the place with a beach type theme that will work perfectly! The technique is still easy to do today, so no worries there. Since the instructions might be a little hard to read, I have reprinted them for you. Give the technique a try. It's very simple to do but you can get stunning results!
Thank you for joining me. Until next time...

Step 1. Cut mulberry paper into two squares approximately 4”h x 3”w. Stamp sea gulls and sailboat on mulberry paper using black inkpad. Color images in with chalk pencils. Run images through the Xyron machine, and spray with sealer. Cut images out, leaving a border around the images. Carefully remove the paper backing and adhere images to candles.
Step 2. Cut corrugated paper to fit around the candles. Trim with decorative scissors and glue to the bottom of the candles with glue gun. Add straw ribbon, raffia, jute string and sea shells with glue gun.
