Day 8 of Speedy the Cat's 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

Speedy the Cat at Mark's Finest Papers likes to get a head start on special Christmas gifts and memories for friends and family. He gathered the design team at Mark's Finest Papers to bring you 12 days of exciting paper crafting gift ideas to get that holiday mojo flowing. The hop runs for 12 consecutive days, starting October 17th! Begin your holiday hop at Speedy's home base, the Mark's Finest Papers blog and relax with a cup of eggnog (or sprig of catnip, your choice) as Speedy leads you though a short, daily hop. You'll find your holiday paper crafting ideas and supplies at Mark's Finest Papers.
Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! We have four samples each day for our hop! Please visit each of the following blogs for holiday inspiration! Start off tomorrow on the MFP Blog for more inspiration!

Good morning!  My candles are featuring just a couple of the new releases from MFP's.  I had never tried this before and I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out.  It is REALLY easy to do.  Stamp the image you want on your candle onto tissue paper and color it up (if you desire, but not necessary) with whatever medium you chose.  Cut the image out closely...not leaving much extra tissue.  Next, lay it on the candle where you want the image.  Place a piece of wax paper tightly over the image.  Using your heat gun, burnish the image into the candle.  You can tell when you're done as you won't see the tissue paper anymore.  The wax paper helps to distribute the heat.
For these candles, I used Country ChristmasCountry Thanksgiving and Ginger Cookies.  All new at MFP's this month.
I hope you continue to enjoy the hop and it gets your creative juices flowing for the holidays!
