I don't know what it is but some of my project ideas come just as I'm about to drift off to sleep. The funny thing is that now that I've realized this, I look forward to those minutes of free-for-all thinking and it makes me go to bed sooner than I normally would. I'm a night owl at heart so this helps me a lot.
This small project is one of the ones that came about in one of my 'pre-sleep' sessions. I would be happier with the design if the paper were flush with the votive. The obvious safety issues with a flame being so close to paper keep me from doing that. I still consider this a work in progress so that's why I'm not posting a tutorial.
