Yesterday, I said I wasn’t crafty. I didn’t lie, but I just made these. I think that officially makes me crafty.
It was so easy and fun to do. And it’s much more fun than driving to Target and compete for space among those last-minute shoppers. I stand there forever trying to find the perfect card. So I copied this idea from Real Simple’s February 2013 issue. You don’t have to be crafty to make these.
I liked this idea because I happen to have a ton of extra candles from all the birthdays in this house. All you need is a piece of paper (from the printer), regular glue and a marker or two. I borrowed Zoe’s glue (Elmer’s Washable Clear School glue). I was surprised how easily the candles adhered to the paper. I spaced it out with my eye. It’s faster and it doesn’t have to be perfect.

I made a card for my husband, too. But he reads this blog so I’ll actually refrain from showing you first. I’m thoughtful like that, sometimes.
