This is a reminder to let you know that after this hop, the NEXT STOP is over at another talented DT sister LISA'S BLOG. Be sure to see how wonderful LISA to check out her creation is for more inspiration!!

Here is my project sharing for today. The project is a Winter Holiday Candle Wrapper and a Mini Tag card set.  I bought a jar of scented candle the other day and it looks so plain, so I decided to make a decoration wrapper to decorate it.  I also make a mini tag card to go with it too. Please scroll down for additional details.
Here is my finished project.  I picked the stamps from the Winter Wonderland Collection.  I used North Pole Tilda for the jar of scented candle.  On the mini card, I used Peaceful Christmas Tree and Merry Christmas Text is frame with the Joyful Banner stamp.

Closer views of front and back of the wrapped scented candle

Closer view of this mini tag card.  The card base is cut with a Sizzix Cutter and I cut a rectangle card to decorate with this Peaceful Christmas Tree with the little Merry Christmas text framed with the Joyful Banner to insert into this card base

Thank you so much for joining us at the blog hop and please keep hopping and have fun.  Before you are off to the next hop,  HERE IS A CLUE FOR YOU: 7 Words
