Day 4 Glass Votive Holders Oct 20

My glass votives are made with three of the Mark's Finest Papers stamp sets that you can find here. I used Snowball? Country Thanksgiving, and Ginger Cookies. These were so much fun to make. You can get these jar votive candles by either visiting the "Dollar Store" or you can also get them at "Micheal's Arts and Crafts" for $1 as well.
I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags for the labels and mounted that onto the jar after removing all the labels. I then attached a fussy colored image on top with some dimensional stickers. I tied a ribbon around the jar top and attached a tag around the bow. For the Country Thanksgiving votive I made Chrysanthemums for a tutorial I did here and glued them to the top. I used various Spellbinder snowflakes for the tops of the other votives. This was very easy and fun to do. It makes a really great gift idea. Hope you enjoyed today's 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop project for today. Be sure to stayed tuned for tomorrows project!
