Heart Candle the answer to my WOYWW Challenge


video



I've been working on trying to make a candle holder from the Memory Box heart dies and last night, while I was sleeping, this idea came to me.  Trust me, since Wednesday I've cut several and they have all landed on the cutting room floor (ok waste basket).  The problem I was having is how to stand it up.  My daughter suggested angling the hearts, which didn't work,  I tried cutting the point off, no luck.  I tried a 1 inch band to adhere the hearts to, not so good.  Then, in my sleep I thought of my Martha Stewart Heart border punch.  The first one was hearts along the top, flat on the bottom.  It held the dies upright, but didn't look as pleasing as I wanted.  Then I thought, how about making the hearts as little legs and as a decorative top to glue the dies cuts to.  I like it...yes I do.  What do you think?  Now, I can move on to something else.  Don't you hate it when you have an idea and you can't rest until you have a solution? 

Have a wonderful weekend.  We are MAYBE going to get rain, and since we need it so desperately... I'll be happy when and if we get a down pour. 

See you all next week.....Happy Crafting.  I think I am going to link this to WOYWW  After all, that's where this thought began. 

Hugs to all,
Mary
