Stamping and Embossing on Candles - a mini tutorial

I'm getting ready for some Christmas shows and wanted to make some Christmas presents.  One of the gifts I made was a stamped and embossed candle.  I got my inspiration from watching You Tube videos.  Here is my candle:
The method for stamping on candles is very well explained in this you tube video
I just took it one step farther, by stamping the snowflake images on the tissue paper using versa mark and then embossing with white embossing powder. Each snowflake was cut out and adhered to the candle using a glue stick in the position I wanted them. I then melted them into the candle using my heat tool.
The candle was further decorated with small rhinestones in the center of the larger snowflakes.
A white organza ribbon and bow and a punched out snowflake (covered with dazzling diamonds) complete the gift.
Although it looks complicated, it really is easy.
Hint:  The cheaper candles are easier to stamp on.

I have also found out the cheaper candles are easier to work with. This is beautiful. I would be scared of burning the tissue paper with the heat gun to set it.
