Before we get started, make sure you click here to enter my giveaway. I am giving away a Silhouette Portrait cutting machine and Double-sided Adhesive kit!
I received my double-sided adhesive starter kit from Silhouette and could not wait to use it! My husband and I are having a romantic valentine’s dinner at home so I decided to make a quick candle for our place-settings. I still have to make another one.
The candle was so easy and inexpensive to make. I cut a piece of gold vellum 2 5/8 inches x 7 1/2 inches and wrapped it around a votive candle holder that I purchased at Target. Next I used the Silhouette double- sided adhesive and cut out a heart designed by Samantha Walker that you can purchase from the Silhouette on-line store. The adhesive cut perfectly and was super easy to use. Click here to order this amazing adhesive and remember to use my promo code BOUTIQUE to get the sale price of $12.99. My mind is spinning with all the possibilities. Also Valentine shapes are just 75 cents at the Silhouette Online store through February 14th. Wow!
Next I applied the gold glitter from the Silhouette kit and brushed away the excess with a brush that came with the kit. The ultrafine glitter is stunning. I inserted a flameless votive candle and was done.
Since glitter worked great with the adhesive, I thought I would experiment with a few other products.
For my first experiment, I used the double-sided adhesive and covered it with gold leaf. I used the brush that was included in the kit and it worked perfectly.
For the heart in the middle of the photo I used the adhesive with microbeads. Another success!
Lastly I used the adhesive with silver embossing powder and then heated the heart with my embossing gun. I love the textured look! Wow! Three for three!
