That is the nice thing about these candle sleeves is that you can reuse them forever. You can just continue to change them with the seasons or with holidays and other special occasions. They are so versatile. What a wonderful investment for a wedding since you can them take all of them and recreate them through the years. It really is an eco-friendly idea!
Notice that I added a decorated metal tray below the candle? I wanted to place something at the base as a decorative element. You can also fill this tray with candy, party horns, confetti, mini cupcakes, and probably a million other things that I have not even thought of yet.

1. Cut a piece of the striped patterned cardstock 4″ wide and wrap around the candle using your liquid glue to fasten the back seam.
2. Cut a 3″ piece of the dotted patterned cardstock, wrap around the striped and fasten in back with liquid glue.
3. Cut a piece of the solid red 1/8″ wide and wrap around the top and bottom where the dots and stripe meet for trim.
4. Use your Cuttlebug machine and your 3 smalled scalloped circle nestabilities to cut 3 circles. The smallest should be solid green, middle should be red, and largest blue. Fast these together.
5. Cut a plaid triangle out of patterned cardstock and add a small circle dot that you have created with your hole punch to the top, to create a birthday hat.�
6. Cut a piece of ivory cardstock from your patterned paper stack and place at an angle across the scalloped circle layers. Attach your hat at an angle on top of this. Write “Happy Birthday to You” across the strip as shown.
7. Using your I-top tool, small blanks and small punch, create a orange and red dotted brad button using patterned cardstock. (If you need a refresher course on how to use the i-Top, read Jenny’s review.) Position this on the scalloped circle so it clusters with the hat and saying strip poking it through and opening up the ends on the back. Attach the entire scalloped piece to the paper on the candle.
8. Add your different colored Stickles glitter glue on the scalloped bumps, dots on the brad and circle on the top of the hat and allow to dry.�
9. Use a bowl to trace a 6″ circle on plaid patterned cardstock and cut out. Attach this piece to the bottom of your cream tray.
10. Using your largest Nestabilities scallop, cut a solid red piece out and attach this to the bottom of your candle. Set all in the tray.
