First Beeswax Projects



Tags using beeswax.



I purchased Rangers Utee Melting Pot last week as I wanted to try beeswax in my collage work. My first trials were inspired by this week's Theme Thursday challenge: bookmarks. Beeswax makes the surface a bit sticky so these are more gift tags than bookmarks. I did not have quilting iron to smooth the surface so the surface became a bit uneven. I have ordered one though so I am looking forward my next beeswax projects.



The poem in the right side tag is: "Happiness held is the seed. Happiness shared is the flower." I found it on the net and it's so beautifully said!
