Zen Travel Tin

I can't take a bath without having at last one candle to lit to keep me company! Make a little tin for yourself or for a friend so you can take your candle garden any where you go and turn that bath into a relaxing, spa experience, a hotel bedside into cozy place like home, or any little corner into a contemplative space.

I stamped my label border from "What's in Your Tin? 1" onto some DP that came in a Hobby Lobby value pack, aren't those little river stones perfect? Then I stamped "Dream" from Asela's new Botanical Dreams set, this is one of my favorite fonts, it's so elegant but earthy!


I added a tealight and then poured in some green sea glass, I love this in bathrooms! You can find a bag of sea glass very cheap in the candle/floral section of any craft store. Close it up and you're ready to take it on the road! If you give it as a gift, consider tucking inside a small book of matches covered with a coordinating DP or stamped paper.


Stop back later this week for another new addition to my bathroom using this same set and another tin, where I'll share a perfect alternative to that rock paper! ;)

AWESOME idea! and a beautiful project!

OK, girl...now you did it! Up to this point, while I've enjoyed all the cute little tins you've made, I've been successfully able to tell myself that I just don't need that labels set. But today it is obvious that I MUST have it. This is too cute and would be great for all my yoga friends and yoga teachers. Quite the enabler you are! :^)
