STEP 1:

Measure your paper first. You’ll need enough paper to go around with approximately a 3cm overlap. Ensure the edges are cut neatly.

STEP 2

Add some double sided tape on one of the edges into the centre, and stick the paper around the candle so it will resemble a tube.

STEP 3

Ensure the paper at both ends roughly comes up half way.

STEP 4

You will pleat both ends at a time. Pull the edge of the paper in to the centre all the way around and cut away any excess.  Secure with double sided tape.

STEP 5

Repeat the same at the opposite end.

STEP 6

When you are adding ribbon on circular items, it’s a good idea to secure it with a small amount of double sided tape so the ribbon doesn’t fall off.
