Welcome to day two of the new releases at MHK Designs. This set is called Fruit Borders and features lemons and pears, along with some great sentiments.
The image was printed on basic quality copy paper, I didn't try tissue in my printer as it can be temperamental at the best of times. I coloured the image with Graph-It markers and then fussy cut it. I also fussy cut the sentiment ready to go onto the candle.
The image was added first by laying the paper over the candle and then covering it with a long length of baking parchment. Holding the parchment tightly at the back, to keep the image flush to the candle, I used my heat gun to melt the wax so the image sunk in and the edges of the paper disappeared. Here's the link to a You Tube video tutorial that will guide you through the process, it's really easy and very effective. The sentiment was added in the same way and then all that was left to do was put it on a stand and add some ribbon.
The fire safety label is still on the bottom of the candle, I've been told that it should not be sold without one so if you are making these for fund raisers you may want to find out more.
We have another three days of new releases to show you, you can find lots more inspiration over at the MHK Designs blog, plus the chance to win a set. If you would like to buy them now you can find them all on Etsy.
