~I just bought 3000 votive pre-wicks on Ebay for only $25! So much cheaper than I expected. Michaels sells them in packs of 12 for $2($.165 each). I'll be making votive candles for the rest of my life with these things! Maybe I can resell some of them....~

~I think I meant pre-tabbed wicks. Oopps! The're already cut to size, coated in wax and a metal base has been attached. Huge timesaver! I would love to trade for FO's.....Great idea!~

So far I have made tarts and I am testing wicks in the container candles...

I think I need a wick setter, but I have mastered 3 containers!

~I poured containers 2 years ago. Wick centering was very difficult. I finally wrapped the wick around a pencil and rested it across the top of the jars. It worked! I used leftover bits and pieces of old candles to make my votives, but when they're all burned I'll buy some wax at Michaels and make some more! And this time I'll have some control of the color and scent!~
