I made her a candle with music notes and a birthday card to send to her in the mail. I found a tutorial a few weeks ago and it told how to print on tissue paper and then melt it into the side of the candle. I am sorry I don't know where I found it, if you know; tell me! I would like to give credit.
So, the first thing is to print your image on tissue paper. Easy right? Well, not if you don't tape it down well. The trick is t tape it on all sides to a piece of normal paper so it can be pulled through the printer.
I printed a music page and the letter B to wrap around my candle. Benita has a wonderful voice and aso plays the piano very well. :) Trim the paper to fit around your candle and you really don't want any extra because it will show. Wrap the tissue paper around the candle and hold it in place while you melt the wax. I initially was going to use a lighter - ha! Not a good idea. The best thing I found is to use another candle and hold it over it to heat the wax and it will "absorb" the tissue paper.
