    Hi. Something I love doing with hybrid is decorating candles. I normally make Christmas themed ones as gifts at this time of the year.
    I made some more today.

    If you've never done this before and want to try, it's really easy.
    Mark a template in your software to the size of your candle(s) and create something beautiful with your digikits.
    Here's my pre-print image.

    Iron some white tissue paper sized a little bit smaller than your standard printer paper.

    Using masking tape tape along the edges only, tape the tissue to the piece of paper. The masking tape will be gripped by the printer feeds.

    Print

    Apply to the candle using a heat gun.
    This is one of the best tutorials for doing that I've found.

    As long as the candle is a minimum of 1.5 inches in diameter and the image is well melted into the candle then it can be burnt in the normal fashion.
