My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Mummy Votives

Good Morning!

This is not a card, but I made these after seeing something similar at the craft store around here.

I made them before vacation, and they have been on my table ever since...So cute!!!!

I used gauze torn into strips and wrapped it around two old votive candle holders I had. After securing it with glue, I took a brown ink pad (don't remember which brand!) and scummed up the material to make it look aged. I bought googlie eyes and used a glue dot on those to secure them. The craft store used tall cylinders for these, but I had these votive holders on hand and thought I would recycle, so in this case I am using the battery operated tea lights for safety. Thanks for the drop by and hopefully I will get to posting new stuff later in the week!

How cute is that! And how sad that we are in San Diego at the same time and didn't know it! I always love meeting some other crafty girls!
