I decided to do a winter theme candle using vinyl. I used the MS Seasonal cartridge and the Christmas cartridge. I picked up a 6 in. flameless candle from JoAnn's. Using design studio, I put together 3 snowflake borders @ 1.5 and welded them together. I stretched them to 9.44 by 1.53 to fit the width of my candle. I then cut several snowflakes from the Christmas cartridge in sizes from 1 to 1.5 in blue and white. After cutting them, I weeded one of the borders and took a picture to show how it looks weeded. Of course I can't do anything in my craft room without Sassy supervising me!
Weeding the snowflakes was a bit more difficult since the pieces are so tiny, even at 1 inch.
I used transfer paper to attach the borders to the top and bottom of my candle, although next time I think I'll forgo using that. It was more difficult to get them smooth using the paper. For the snowflakes I just peeled them off the backing and placed them around the candle.
These pictures just don't do it justice. Unlike the tealights, the larger candles flicker just like a real candle.
