    Just wanted to stop by and let you know that I just made those music sheet candles. I found some thin sheet music at Pat Catans and used Mod Podge to stick them to the candle but I believe using Mod Podge was a bad idea. It was too liquidy and caused me to wrinkle some of the sheet music because of the moisture in the glue. I suggest to everyone else that goes through with this to use a drier adhesive.

    Hey Jeff! How cool that your tried my project! And very nice of you to share your tips. I just taped the paper into a tube shape and literally placed them over the flame less votives. You went all out!! I bet they looked pretty.

    They came out ok. Since I made them I know their flaws. The second time around, they'll be even better.

    I'd like to age a copy of Poe's The Raven and do this. I think I'd cut out some sections from a tube (wrapping paper, paper towel, etc) then glue the page around it. the cut out parts would highlight key sections of the poem. hmmm perhaps a grouping of Poe's poems...

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
