I'm Back and a Mother's Day Gift

Well I am back from the craziness that has been my life lately.
At least I hope it's over.
Thank you for keeping my family in your thoughts and prayers.
You really don't know how much it means.
So Thank You.

Now back to the fun stuff.
I've had some ideas going around in my little brain
and I'm excited to get working on them.
Today I have a super cute Mother's Day gift idea.
(You could also make a teacher gift.  Next week is teacher appreciation week)
I made these for the Grandmas for Valentines Day.
All I will say is 
Huge Hit

So lets get started 
Embossing gun/Heat gun (A really hot hair dryer might work.  I've never tried)
White tissue paper
White candle
Ink pad or markers
Wax paper

You are going to start by put ink or marker on your child's finger then make 2 fingerprints on the tissue paper to make a heart.
I put their names under them and it would be cute to put the date too.
Now cut out around the picture.
The closer the better.
Take a piece of wax paper big enough to go around the candle.
Put the tissue paper where you want it on the candle
Then put the wax paper over it and pull tight in the back.
Run your heat gun back and forth for about 15 seconds or until you can no longer see the tissue paper.  
Try really hard not to burn yourself because it really hurts.
Not that I've done it or anything.
And when your done you will have a cute personalized candle.
Hope you a have a great weekend.
