"Hope" Candle Tag

Now that summer is almost over, I decided it was about time to swap out my dark red mantel candles for a lighter seasonal look! :-) These pale blue ones will do the trick, but I decided to embellish them with a little tag for a custom look.
Supplies:
assorted papers
alphabet stamps or computer
metal tag
scissors
ribbon
glue
hole punch
Measure your metal tag. Stamp "hope" onto scrapbooking paper or design your tag on the computer and cut it out a touch smaller than the tag. Glue it on. Punch the hole. Cut a coordinating paper band to wrap around the candle and glue overlapping ends in back to secure in place. Thread ribbon through holes and tie around candle. Trim ends.

But we love it at the same time!
