Adorably Simple (and cheap) Gifts

How to make an adorable gift- great for many occasions, not just the holidays- with a few items. Here is what you need:
Small candle (These candle are from Bath and Body Works- on sale 3 for $10!)
Flat Snowflake ornament or tissue paper*
Washi Tape
*(of which you probably have laying around- otherwise the Dollar $tore is your friend)
Here we Gooooo:
 Remove the string from the ornament. Remove the front label (don't worry it still tells you what scent the candle is on the bottom) and then wrap the washi tape around.
Like so:

Before, during and after progress shot.
Set the candle on top of the ornament and tie a ribbon around both to keep them in place.
OR fold a small piece of tissue paper around the candle and tie with a ribbon bow.
TADA- bonus, the ornament is now a cute little candle "holder."
And, wouldn't these even make cute favors?!
