Wax Paper Luminaries

Tulips are a classic spring flower. But, just like spring, their beauty fades fast. 

Here is a creative way make your wilting tulips last a little longer with Wax Paper Luminaries. 

For this project, you will need:

  • Four cut tulips 
  • Wax paper
  • A thin tea towel 
  • Iron 
  • Ironing board
  • Scissors
  • Scotch tape 
  • 2 pieces of thick, card-stock paper (in a light color) 
All you have to do is:

1. Place a design on a sheet of wax paper; 

2. Place another sheet on top of the design; 

3. Lay a tea towel on top of your design & iron on "medium" (start at low if you are nervous);

4. Continue ironing until the flower is completely flat and the wax paper sticks together where the petals and stem are.

5. Trim all 4 sides into a perfect rectangle or square (use same dimensions moving forward);

6. Seal the edges with scotch tape; 

Repeat 3 more times (if you want to create 2 luminaries).

To construct the luminaries, take two flower sheets and cut 2 sides form your card-stock paper the appropriate height. Tape all four sides together so the luminary can stand. 

All that's left to do is add your Candle Impressions LED flameless candle to light them!

Please remember this craft is intended for adults only and is not suitable for young children due to safety hazards.
