Altered Candle Tins...

How far that little candle throws its beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world. -William Shakespeare A few more little gifts and Craft Fair items. I picked these candle tins up at the Dollar section of Michael's last year. I had them stuck away in my "Alterables Drawer." With a little Christmas Paper and some embellies I think they are pretty cute stocking stuffers!

I added glitter on top of the candle itself...I have had glittered candles before and didn't burn down the house, so I am hoping it will be ok! :)

I used my trusty Small Preinked Christmas JustRite stamper for the top...
