Fall Leaf Votives

Fall Leaf Votive
** several folks have asked if the votives are washable, I did a quick test and it looks like if you hand wash, gently, and hand dry they are washable. I did not have any of the alcohol ink come off when I did a test wash.**

I created two fall votives for A Craft Junkie Too Design Team project last year and I wanted to repost them because I have many new followers and recently a new Friend was telling me about these fabulous votives she saw on a blog last year and I had to laugh because they were mine! I love the way they turned out. I created a video so you can see how I made these. They are quick, simple and inexpensive. I am linking these up to the "link up" party over at Cuttin' Up With Class so y'all create your own set and link them up too!! :-)


Please forgive the choppiness of the video, it was over 18 minutes long so I had to get it under the 15 minute limit and I am still learning how to edit! If anyone makes one please let me know, I would love to see them!

Please leave me a comment letting me know what you think, I love comments and I will confess to constantly checking for them! So, come on and make my day by leaving me a comment!!
Thanks,
Tammy
