Your choice of colors and design will make this a unique gift and creating a pattern for the nails is easy with the help of the Rhinestone Tool.

This project is always a hit! Create your own design or use one like this from the Silhouette Design Store and turn an inexpensive candle holder into a treasured gift.

Rolled Flower Frame

For the decal in this tutorial, I purchased an SVG of a mason jar and then added my own text. Perform a Google search using the term “mason jar SVG” and you’ll find plenty of options. To make the project even easier, use pre-designed word art.

Decorated Candle

Tattoo paper is not just for your skin! I decorated this candle with a Print & Cut design from the Silhouette Design Store but you could use a photograph, clipart, or even text.

Handmade Card

It’s no secret that I LOVE Lori Whitlock’s card files but there are also several other options in the Silhouette Design Store. Start with a purchased file and then add your own creative touches.

Custom Stamp

If you own a Mint, make Mom a custom stamp that will remind her of you every time she uses it. Choose a design from the free ones that come with the Mint or create one of your own.
