Anyone for Tea?

Hi and belated Happy New Year to you. Whilst I've been a tad lazy on the blog posting front I have at least still been creative. With the Christmas crafting done and dusted I like to start the new year thinking of new ideas and this is one of them............
 ...............a teacup candle. I thought these teacups I found were the perfect shape and size to make into pretty candles. Pouring the wax was a little tricky and then I hit upon the idea of using my ever useful tattered floral die to make a decorative flower to sit on top for presentation. You can just see the wick poking through. A label tied to the handle provides the finishing touch.
Although January has seen the beginning of some new ideas I've also returned to some old favourites too. A fabric apple and yet more flowers die cut with the tattered floral die. Perhaps I should write a book - 101 things to do with a tattered floral die!

Happy crafting till next time when I promise not to mention the tattered floral die, well I'll try!
