Mason Jar Gift Candle

Hello, everyone.  Today I've made a Mason Jar Gift Candle for a Christmas present.  I was inspired by the "12 Days of Christmas" challenges going on at Mark's Finest Papers - I'm seeing how many of the projects in the 12-day challenge I can accomplish.  I've never made anything like this before so I'm glad there was a tutorial

I also made a cover for the candle for when not in use.

Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Candle (dollar store), Fluffles and Baubles (Stampendous)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Watercolour markers:  Tombow
  • Gold marker:  Pilot (for outlining tag)
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Dies:  Spellbinders Lacy Circles, Nellie's Multiframes Circles
  • Tag Punches:  Marvy Uchida
  • Jar:  I had an empty jar in my kitchen cupboard
  • Ribbon, gold twine:  Dollarama
I would like to enter the following challenges:
