Creating a Sleeve Form

Materials Needed for Making a Sleeve Form:



How to Create Form:

    1. First, cut down plastic if needed. The plastic needs to be at least 11" width, 8" height. If the width is larger than 11", edges can overlap when putting together. Cutting down is not needed.
    2. Also, if cut down, find the straightest 11" edge. That will be the bottom. Mark a line on the inside as close to the bottom as possible using the ruler/straight edge and permanent marker. Using a cutting mat with measurement markings helps!!
    3. Then, using the cutting mat's markings, line up bottom line with 0. Draw a line across the 11" width at 5", 6", and 7". (More will be needed if candles vary from the standard 4", 5" and 6" height. If candles being used are a different height, add 1 inch to what they are and draw a line at that height.)
    4. Finally, roll with markings on inside of plastic matching the edges if cut length is 11". If larger, overlap to form a 11" circumference. Using packaging tape, secure outside. It's helpful to add tape to one side, then carefully align markings and secure opposite side. Add tape on the inside to help maintain the circular shape.
