Master Crafter Project

Good Morning!
Today is the day!  It is time to link up my Master Crafter project for Pink by Design :-)  What is Master Crafter??  Sarah Hamer from Pink by Design was able to get a few sponsors and gave 100 people a box of crafting items.  Our goal was to make a project using the stuff in the box and other items we had on hand.  Today is the day we link up our projects so that the voting can begin.

Here is what was in our box:

- Scissor Mouse sponsored by Westcott 
-DCWV Rockstar mat stack sponsored by DCWV Deals
-Cotton Bag Sponsored by State line Bag Co. 
-1/2 sheet of Rhinestones sponsored by Queen & Co.
-Sentiment stamp sponsored by Pink by Design
- a button 
I wanted to make something that I had never done before and force myself to think outside the box.  This is what I came up with...

What is it,  you ask???
It's a Candle Cozy :-) I put pumpkin spice scented bath salts in the bag and decorated it with a matching tag!  I thought it would be a fun way to decorate my candles year round without adhering it to the candle.  When Halloween is over, I take it off and add a new one!  I use a battery powered candle just to be safe!  This is also a great gift idea!
Here are a bunch of pictures so you can see the entire thing...

How did I make it?
I cut some felt that I had in my stash and sewed paper from the DCWV Rockstar stack.  I also used other paper from this stack for a few of the pumpkins and the stems.  I used two sentiment stamps from PBD and the faces are from Peachy Keen Stamps.  The green rhinestones went perfectly with the stems.  All of the cuts are from the Silhouette store.  The button that came along with my box was perfect to help hold the Candle Cozy together.  A simple hair tie was used to connect it.
I thought this was a fun, outside of the box idea.  This is only the third time I have ever sewn anything and was happy with how it turned out :-)
If you think my project deserves to win, please come over and vote for me HERE!!
