Today was the day to give it a try and I must say I LOVE the smell of melting beeswax!
I purchased some travel tins from Micheals last year and they have been sitting quietly waiting for me to get busy with the beeswax!
To melt the wax I bolied a pot of water then cut off the top from a milk carton. I chopped up the beeswax into smaller chunks and placed it into the milk carton. I then put the milk carton into the water so it melted the wax from the heat of the water instead of the heat of the burner.
The wax smells so pretty when it's melting and looks so nice when it has cooled.
When the wax was completely cooled we glued on the decorated paper and then Sierra added some glitter glue to hers.
I learnt a little secret about beeswax sheets...it likes to be warmed up when you use it. We picked out a piece of red and a piece of green and set to work.
Sierra finally discovered Elfie tonight too...he was hiding amounst a cluster of Santa's...very tricky!
