Stamping is not just for card and scrap booking. A neat gift idea at Christmas or any Holiday for that matter is candles. One year for Christmas I made all my coworkers a candle similar to this one only with Christmas stamps.
First you stamp what image you want on tissue paper. Be very careful tissue paper is not like stamping on cardstock, it is not very forgiving. You can stamp an image and your favorite verse or saying and then color if necessary then cut the image out. You don't want to cut closely to the image you want to have some left around the image. Then you attach your image to the size candle you wish with decopage (dries clear) once it is dry you are ready to wrap it up. A very inexpensive gift from the heart.
