Pendant, candle wax and key holder all recycled!


here a bring you some pictures of some of the things I had made with paper and card stuff .
The pendant was made from a very hard cardboard that came with something I buy, then is done by using different scarp paper left overs,  they were glue them one over another and mark with a black marker, then  put some embossing clear enamel powder and the edge I put gold embossing powder, a ribbon and a string and that is all!|  To be honest in the picture it is difficult to appreciate it, it look like glasses melt together...the key holder was made with a leftover of grunge paper (this is a type of recycle paper that looks like leather and is very strong) I did a collage of different leftover little pictures from printing, then they were painted and cover in lacquer the other side was stamp with a tree stamps from Gersariel Collections, then painted with mica and cover with sparling glue type glitter.  Ans now my first baby!  the candle, this candle have burn and have a misshapen rounded form, so first I trim it a little to make it more even, then I stamped (Gersariel Collections Stamps) in tissue paper that came in a x mas gift, painted with marker, then cut the stamped area very near the edges, put it over the candle and cover it with baking paper (also can use kitchen wax paper I think is better) put a little tape in the back to fix it and heat with my stamping heat gun all over, I must admit I heat it to long and it melt a little (this is my first attempt doing this) but I safe a very ugly candle, use some leftover tissue and baking paper and I think it looks some kind vintage or retro that is the style I love!!!
The trimming of the candle I save it for another project that I have on my mind and I will show you it soon!
Hope you enjoy it!
