    It doesn't say...It was just a cheap candle from Target, so I hope not!

      Sarah those came out really great! It's hard to believe that it's as simple as heating the tissue paper.

      sarah I was planning on putting a monogram on my centerpiece candles, but I used a clear label, but this looks nicer so if it doesn't burn up let me know so I can figure out how to do it.

            Sarah, I'm a little confused. Did you print directly onto the tissue paper?? If so, how did you do this? What type of tissue paper did you use? I love this effect!

              I did actually print directly on the tissue paper. It's tricky though, because my printer can't handle it, so I taped the tissue paper to a regular piece of printer paper. You just cut close to the edge of the design anyway, so it just results in a wasted piece of printer paper. Smaller designs definitely work better, and it works best (well, actually it only works) if you use no larger than a 6x6 inch or smaller square of tissue, and make sure you pull the edges tightly... Does that make sense?
              Oh, and it's just regular white tissue paper like for lining gift wrap boxes.

              that sounds more difficult than my clear labels, since I am not sending them home with anyone, I think I will stick with the labels. but you obviously bought a good candle.

                  lol, only 18- but I'm thinking Christine's clear labels are sounding better and better all the time...
