1) Cut out your die cuts using a Silhouette or other die cutting machine. You want your candle to look the same on the back. From the menu in Silhouette Studio, I did Object-Transform-Mirror Options-Mirror Right.
2) Gather your die cuts, adhesives, and a lollipop stick or wooden dowel.
6) Because of the lollipop stick or wooden dowel, you’ll have a gap between the die cuts. For stability add circle foam tabs in between. You may have to cut some of the foam tabs in half and use tweezers to get in between.
8) Add the foam circle tabs again, cutting them in half and using tweezers to help to get into the tight spots. My daughter was very specific about how she wanted her candle to look and helped me along the way. She loves scrapping with me as you can see her hands and fingers are dirty from playing in my ink pads.
10) At the request of my daughter, one side did not get flip flops. You can see at the bottom of the shell, the back side of them on the other side. There is enough mirrored on either side of the stick, that it doesn’t show up.
