Tutorial Tuesday – Embossing on Candles

Today on Tutorial Tuesday I will show you how to dress up your candle

with embossing powder.


  • Candle
  • Embossing Powder
  • VersaMark
  • Tissue Paper
  • Heat gun
  • Stamps
  • Gems
  • Wax paper (not in photo)
  • Trim tissue paper to size of candle.

    Stamp into VersaMark, then cover area with embossing powder.

    Heat emboss, keeping heat gun 6 to 8 inches away from tissue paper to avoid scorching.

    Continue decorating tissue paper with embossing powder.

    Cut wax paper to size of candle.  Place overtop of tissue paper and gently heat.

    This step works the tissue paper into the candle.

    Be careful not to overheat the wax on the candle.

    Add decorative gems.
