I did this same project and I used a product called Zips. They sell it at Joann’s, Michaels, and Paper Source. It is very similar in texture to the tacky adhesive that holds magazine inserts in place, but it comes in a very fine line. You just cut the length you need (the height of the votive wrap) peel one side of the backing off, apply it to the votice, peel of the front wrapper, and press down the vellum. This stuff hasn’t budged in the 5 months since I did the project, and I even did an 8-hour test to see how it would react to the heat of the burning candle. No problems whatsoever. I used 2 strips per votive, one for each end of the wrapper. It looks neat and tidy.

Jasmine~ Your candles were beautiful! Tell me more about the machine she used to make the impression. I’ve never heard of it, but now I want one!

It’s called a cuttlebug and once you get your hands on one, you’ll be obsessed! It’s this little baby of a machine you can use with different templates to create raised textures on paper.

Eggplant did a great post on Cuttlebugs here:
