June’s candle kit
One: Write a secret message on a 4″ x 4″ piece of paper. Fold the piece of paper in half, then in half again, and label it if you’d like. Fold the secret message into a 4″ x 4″ piece of tin foil and fold it four or five times so it’s air tight. For extra protection from the wax, repeat this step so the secret message is double wrapped in foil.
TWO: Place the foil-wrapped secret message in the bottom of a candle tin and pour about 1⁄4 inch of melted candle wax into the candle container, then add your secret foil message to the wax and let cool for 10-15 minutes (fun fact: foil floats so this thin layer of wax will “anchor” the foil).
THREE: Then continue with steps candle tutorial.
To Use: Once the candle burns all the way down you’ll be able to retrieve the hidden prize. Please make sure that you let the wax cool and harden before retrieving as the candle wax will be very hot.
