My entry for Sukkersött's Challenge #55 is based on a 2005 Martha Stewart Craft. My lovely candles were rolling around in a drawer, and this is a great way to store them. Wrap them in tissue and keep them in a paper towel tube...

These are my candles and tube...
And here's my shimmery decorated paper towel tube :)
(Click on the images to enlarge)

Here's the top of the tube...

And the bottom...

The most shimmery part of the tube is the flower.
I shimmered a couple of the lines on the patterned paper with Perfect Pearls, but it doesn't photograph well :(

The tube will protect the candles from getting crushed in a drawer. But after wrapping the ribbon around the bottom, I thought I could hang it in the linen closet using one of these hooks from my scraproom... ;)
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend everyone!
