There is my friend, we know each other from high school. Live faaar from each other, lived always far from each other after graduating. At the begining she could go home more frequently then her life changed a bit and since we moved from our homecountry either. We both even are not on facebook so we email each other. When we can. Well not because of all that fact i made her a birthday gift and send it through mail but because we both love to send and recieve. I get always something from her too.
I have a few homemade fragranced candle idea in my pinterst board for a while, because i loooove fragranced candles, mainly during fall and winter, and do not buy any kind of candles because of the toxics. I believe that those strong and not natural fragrances are not good for us and i really don’t need them. And not to mention, the real natural fragranced candles are kinda expensive and my candles are sooner done than i could buy another one :-P.
So back to the story, i made vanille candle for her, and because i sooooo do care about the wrapping and packiging i payed attention to it. I painted a vanilla flower for a birthday card and made a personalized box for her present.
It wasn’t too much time or complex, and most of the thing i had in hand. I think i only bought the box base and the wick for the candles.
I chose a theme to be romantic bur pure. The glass is so elegant so the other things had to be simple. Ok maybe the most of the time of the whole procedure was the box wrapping with that brown paper. I wanted to look perfect :-P.
You can find the candle recipe here and all the other things you can do by your taste.
