Snowflakes and Cinnamon!

Here is a quick and easy gift for someone. I wrapped a pillar candle with some cute paper by Imaginisce. I then adhered some lace ribbon around the top and bottom of the paper. I used the same lace ribbon to make a bow. I then hot glued some cinnamon sticks together. Added some ultra fine glitter to a foam snowflake. And then hot glued the cinnamon sticks to the candle, the bow to the center of the sticks and then the snowflake over that. To finish it off, I added a red bed to the wick. It smells good, without even lighting it!

For the small ATC or Tag I cut a piece of Bazzill Basics CS to 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" for my base. I then cut a smaller piece of the Imaginisce paper to mat inside of the CS. I cut a cinnamon stick down to size, glued that to the ATC and added a bow, felt snowflake and a button to it. I printed the Warm Wishes out from MS Word, trimmed it down to size and inked the edges. To finish it off, I added some mini gold brads to the corners.

Hope you like it! Have a great night!

Hugs, Melissa
