I suggest either printing them and glueing pages A (tilting left) and B (tilting right) together – use the outer frame to align your pages, or printing sheet music, or some kind of pretty typography in neutral tones to the flip sides.

3D LOVE Wallpaper Letters

I had fun using some of the Vintage Wallpapers to create 3D LOVE:
Wings of Whimsy: 3D LOVE Wallpaper Letters #freebie #printable #romantic #valentine #love #letters #3DlTo make these yourself, simply cut out each letter, score and fold all dotted lines and use crafters permanent double sided tape to assemble!  They take a little fiddling, especially the O is a little challenging, but patience and some tweezers will get you a long way 😛 Oh, and for the O I applied the tape to the edges before cutting out the serrates 😉

DIY Romantic Pillar Candles

I used some of the Die Cut Valentine Hearts to make Romantic Pillar Candles:

Wings of Whimsy: DIY Romantic Pillar Candles #romantic #valtentine #pillar #candle #instructionsThese are really so easy to make, I made a whole bunch in about 1 hour:

I also made a few with cute napkins I had in my stash:

The last candle (for my studio) is also sprinkled in  glitter:

SUPPLIES:

  • Cheap pillar candles
  • non-stick white parchment paper
  • napkins (or your chosen prints on tissue paper)
  • scissors
  • heat tool (I used my embossing heat gun, but a hair dryer, an iron or even an old curling iron will do too).

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Line your work surface with a sheet of parchment paper to protect it from candle wax
  • Cut your napkin or tissue paper print to fit the candle. For the Die Cut Hearts I did not fussy cut, I just cut them out with a generous white border all around.
  • Align your chosen decor on the pillar candle
  • Wrap it in parchment paper
  • Start heating with your heat tool, and smooth with your fingers as you go along.
  • When the whole candle has been heated, carefully remove the parchment paper.
  • Any “dry” spots can be heated again until you are satisfied. I went over the whole surface and especially the edges to make sure everything blends nicely into the wax, and to achieve a shiny and saturated surface.
  • Optional: apply spray glue to your candle and quickly sprinkle it with a fine type glitter

Love my Die Cut Hearts and want to use those? Then you will have to prepare those first by printing them on tissue paper. I could never make the various techniques for printing on tissue paper work with my Canon Printer, so I had almost given up on that, the closest I came was printing on paper towels. But I recently came across a technique for printing on tissue paper I had not seen before, and gave it another go, it works like s charm!!! 😀

PRINTING ON TISSUE PAPER:

  • Cut a white sheet of tissue paper slightly larger than an A4 page (when I separate my large sheet of tissue paper into 4 it’s the perfect size).
  • Wrap your tissue paper around a sheet of cardstock (or other quite heavy paper) and glue all 4 wrapped edges to the back of the paper with a glue stick. Pay attention that the corners are especially nice, to avoid printer jam.
  • Insert the paper via manual feed as you would other special printer paper

WARNING:

Please never, ever, leave any decorated pillar candle to burn unattended! The added tissue layer may represent an increased fire hazard, depending on the type of wax/candle you have used!

Please let me know in the comments below if you have any questions about making the DIY Romantic Pillar Candles, or about my new technique on tissue paper printing!
