Choose which picture you want. Size it accordingly and then cut tissue paper a little smaller than your printer paper. Use scotch tape and stick the edges of tissue paper to your printer paper.

Print it out normally, no need to reverse. Place your tissue paper on to the candle after positioning it where you want it. Graphic facing out towards you. Grab your wax paper and sandwich the tissue paper in between. Hold it tightly from behind so that nothing moves.

Turn on your blowdryer and when you see your wax paper turning glossy, that means the image has transferred. Move your blowdryer around so as not to melt the wax. Be careful because it gets very hot. Visit my blog to see more candles I've personalized to my taste!
