Candles and Free Clip Art

Today I have a real treat for you!  A fun, easy, and inexpensive way to dress up all those plain votive candle holders.  I don't know about you, but I love scented candles and some of them come in very nice glass containers.  This is a great way to recycle them.
We will be using Vellum  paper.  Vellum is the semi-transparent paper that sometimes has a metallic sheen to it.  You can find it in the scrapbook section of your hobby store.
I will be giving you several Free Clip Art selections.  You can use the ones I've already written up for you, or you can personalize them and use them as illuminated place cards at each table setting.   You can also print them out on card stock and use them that way.   Just copy, paste and enjoy!
I used gold vellum, but you can use any color your like.
Have fun, Shannon
Just wrap your votive in vellum and secure with double sided tape.  On the one votive I wrapped a cute ribbon around the bottom and secured it in the back with a maple leaf sticker
