FabScraps Country Living Collection - Flameless Candle Project

FabScraps Country Living Collection - Flameless candle Project

FabScraps has a gorgeous new release called Country Living.
I posted some of the products in this collection below so you can see the patterns and colors...ahhhhh beautiful.   The collection also has chipboard, stickers and die cuts to match the chipboard.
I created a candle centerpiece.  This is a flameless candle - I am a giant fan of the flameless candle for crafting. I rolled some flowers as well as added some Prima Marketing goodies, floral wire and berries then topped with a sticker from the collection.

If you scroll down, you'll see a simple instruction set to complete this project.

Here is a better view of the sticker and the country charm. 

Thanks for stopping for a look.   Visit FabScraps blog and Facebook page for all that is new and CHA previews.

1.      Bottom Layer Preparation:
2.     Start with Flameless Candle, wrap a wide ribbon around the candle and glue together. 
3.     Cut a paper strip from FabScraps Country Living  - Farm Fresh 2  C62006  so that it is a little narrower than the ribbon. You want some of the ribbon to peak out.    Punch edges of the strip and securely adhere to the ribbon (glue/tape).
4.     Embellishement Preparation:
5.     Cut a round piece of cardboard to use as the base for your embellishments.
6.     Glue the FabScraps Country Living Rounds Sticker ST62002 to a piece of cardstock or cardboard to give it support and strength.  Glue to the embellishment base.
7.     Embellish your cardboard with flower diecuts or punches.  Add leaves.  to the cardboard base.  I made some rolled flowers from the Farm Fresh 2  paper.  I also punched some leaves from Secret Garden 2 paper C62008.
8.    Finishing Touches:
9.     I added some floral berries and twisted floral wire ti tuck here and there in my cluster.
