Alkaline Trio Lyrics Colour change LED candles




























Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with some candles I decorated with lyrics from some of my favourite Alkaline Trio songs. I used a set of colour changing LED candles with a controller so they will last longer than traditional candles and have lots of different 'looks'.

I printed the lyrics out and traced them onto tissue paper, and did the same with the heartskull for the largest candle. I then stamped stars and butterflies because they related to the lyrics. I then used greaseproof paper wrapped around the tissue paper I placed on the candles and heated it until the tissue paper disappeared.

Alkaline Trio Art LED canvas
























Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with a piece of art I created inspired by my favourite band Alkaline Trio.

First of all I designed the image on crafting software. The heart skull is their logo and I wanted to create incorporating it into the design. I printed onto a heavy canvas style cardstock.

I then sewed and glued fairy lights on the inside of my canvas. When I was done I cut the design to size and glued it to the front of the canvas. Next I made tiny little pin holes around the swirls and music design to allow little areas of the design to be highlighted.

Stamped LED Candle


























Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with a make using an older method with a newer material. I love the stamped candle technique but I wanted to experiment and see if I could make it work on the new LED no flame candles because they are safer than a naked flame.

I bought some LED candles from a store, some white tissue paper, grease proof paper, and got out my stamps and ink pads.

Before I started with each candle I checked they worked with batteries inserted. Worse thing would be finding out the stamped creation didn't work and that you couldn't get a refund! Remember to remove the batteries before starting the process.

I stamped onto the white tissue paper, cut closely around the image and placed where I wanted it on the candle. I then wrapped the grease proof paper around the candle and used my heat tool to melt it into the wax. It worked fine! I was very pleased that it still worked fine when I returned the batteries after the candle cooled too.

This way the candle lasts much longer than a standard candle and you can make flame less candles which are safer for those with young children or have general forgetfulness or clumsiness like me!

They are great gifts and I wrapped them with tissue paper, then cellophane over the top. For this candle I used Crafty Ribbons White Christmas Cobalt Ribbon to decorate with matching blue star tissue paper!

Vintage Butterfly 3D Box Frame Art

























Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a Vintage butterfly wings 3D display. I used an image of butterfly wings from a vintage book found on the graphics fairy site. I printed it twice so I could use a layer for 3D wings.

I carefully cut out just the wings from one of the printed sheets and then to make them appear like real butterfly wings I shaped them with a curve and attached 3D foam pads on the outer edges of the outside of the wing. I then dipped the inside of the wing in pva then placed them on the other printed sheet. That way the wing curves up like its real.

I mounted onto a sheet of cardstock covered with cotton and then placed in a box frame.
