My little inspiring idea for today are these scripture candle votives:
If you've been with me in my online journey for a while, you may have seen these before in my Christian gifts store. But, I've been seeing more and more versions of this look floating around these days, so I have to post mine, too! [WOW - I just saw the date on my photos of this project- 2002!]
I used three Bible verses about Jesus, and printed them around a large "J-E-S-U-S." This look is so versatile, you can use scriptures that reflect a holiday, like Thanksgiving or Christmas; a general theme, like family or hope in Christ; or any of your favorite verses.
Vellum is see-through paper that comes in assorted colors. I used a pale aqua, but look for a color that will coordinate with your room or occasion.
scissors or X-Acto knife, ruler and cutting mat
computer & printer
Measure the height and circumference of your glass votives. Add 1/4 inch to the length and that will be your printable area. Set up your layout in the computer and do a test print on copy paper. Cut and position it on your votive to be sure you've got it all right, then print on your vellum. Take a hair off the height dimension before cutting, so your paper sits just below the rim for safety. Glue the ends after wrapping around the votive.
Note: You can do this same effect with your assorted stamps in place of a computer and printer.

I love this project!!!
I love this idea! I regularly use vellum for punched and embossed, lacy-looking cards and bookmarks (it is a Brazilian craft that I love). I even have a huge roll of white vellum, but I have never thought of using them for something like this. Thanks for another great idea!
Wow! This is a great idea - thanks!!
