Fast Friday Project #2

Fast Friday Project #2 features q very quick travel candle with wrap.  This gift is easy to make with scraps or to make a few dozen a time as party favors.  I picked up these travel candles on the cheap and keep them handy.  You never know when you might need one.  My blog goal through the end of the year is to post a project a – FAST FRIDAY project on every Friday through the end of the year.  If it works out I might continue it further.  If you would like to join me and post a link to a “FAST” creation please do and I will post a link to all of them as we go along.  If I have enough people I will create a separate page for the links.  Who knows, this could be really fun.  Also, coming up next week I will be participating in a GINORMOUS blog hop.  A link to the hop is on the right.  There will be 60 yes, 60 designers participating in this hop.  The link on the right will take you to it and it is very easy to navigate.  You can move backward and forward or hop around by clicking on the Sizzix link in the middle to return to the main Sizzix page.
