Christmas Candle Craft Decorations

This year my son has his first teacher since he just started Kindergarten. He adores Ms. Hamilton and wanted to give her something special. He told me snowflakes were very special when we were looking for ideas at the store, so I thought of making snowflake cutouts on the Silhouette Cameo and adhering them to candles would make a cute gift for his teacher. Once I started playing around with the machine, I realized the possibilities were endless! It ended up being a lot easier than I expected, and I look forward to making plenty of crafts to come. Here is how I made these Christmas Candle Craft decorations.
