Dedication crafts

Our friends are having their baby dedicated on Sunday morning, and we were a little stuck for ideas for a present. Should we take a traditional present, or will they end up with lots of similar gifts? The only solution seemed to be - make something!

I took a plain white candle (just a few pounds in the supermarket) and printed a baby photograph onto a sticker sheet, along with the name (blurred out here) and date and simply peeled and stuck them onto the candle. Voila! Completed in just a few minutes.
I love money-saving ideas and these personalised candles can cost a fortune in the shops compared to what it really costs them to make them. So do it yourself! It's really quite cute, isn't it? It does of course help that he is the cutest baby.
For a while now, I've been a converted fan of 'Safmat' - which is a clear sheet of sticker material that you can print onto. The packaging is shocking and totally doesn't do justice to the multitude of uses for this little simple item. It's perfect for all sorts of crafts!
