A Decorated candle

I thought I would craft something different than a card for a change so I dug out some of the vanilla scented candles I bought ages ago and decorated it using what was left of my Tim Holtz papers I have had in my stash for a long time.I used the TH Tattered floral die and layered up a simple flower using an antique brad from SU for the flower centre. I cut a cuff using some linen effect card and a Martha stewart die added some twine and that was it ...a simple but pretty candle ...I think they make pretty inexpensive gifts...
