Beginner Series – Washi Tape Candles

Welcome to the beginner series! I know it is intimidating to start those first few pages journaling in your Bible.  You can do this! These candles go well with many Bible verses, I used them with Luke 11:33-36.

Supplies- Washi Tape (sold at craft stores or online), a pen, scissors,  and orange for the flame (there are a variety of supplies you can use for this).


“No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness. Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright, as when a lamp with its rays gives you light.” -Luke 11:33-36

First, put a few strips of washi tape down. I like to use two or three different tape thicknesses, for variety.

Trim the excess off the bottom of the page. Next, peel the top of the candle back a bit, and trim to round or slant the top of the candles. Then use in art pen to make a line for the wick .

Next add the flame. Here are examples of a piece of washi tape cut into a flame , colored pencil, marker, and watercolor flames.   I used a watercolor flame in my Bible. I like the way it looks, but it did make the page wrinkle.

That is it! You now have a unique page in your Bible!
