In the darkest hour.....

In the wintertime we don't have too much light here in Norway, so why not decorate some candles? Ok, these candles may not be that suitable to light up, but at least they make a great decoration - or gift. They are quite easy to make; just buy some candles and use a little bit of this and that - whatever you please! It doesn't take that much time either.

This old fashioned candy jar was actually a jar that I was supposed to put money in, but since I never got any further than leaving a couple of lonely coins to get bored on the bottom I thought that this jar could get a better life as a light jar. At least you can see that it has a purpose now *lol*

This jar is quite big, more than 30 cm. tall, so you can put several small candles in it or just one big. I've been playing a bit with alcohol ink that has been running down the glass, finding its own way. The bling swirls make a wonderful reflection when the candle is lit in a dark room - actually very romantic....

The jar is also a result of a dare in the Papir i hjertet designteam

Tusen takk for kjempehyggelig kommentar i bloggen min! Det er et spennende prosjekt, men det kan jo fort vippe begge veier. :)

Tanken var jo at mange andre scrappere skal få muligheten til å selge kortene sine også, så får vi se hvordan det går!

Ha en fortsatt fin dag!

The jar looks so much better tarted up! :)

Do you mind if i ask what you use for the butterflies? They look lovely and intricate, i only have a basic punch and they look rubbish lol.

Have been looking for something more like you've got there, is it a die cut or a punch?
