Well of course as a newbie at this I forgot to take work in progress photos Cry If you will forgive me I will try to make clear instructions. This project started out as brainstorming about what to do with those old obsolete negatives. The Journal and bookmark came first. I used plastic lace woven through the negatives. Hold two negatives side by side and gently weave the lacing through. If you are not careful you will tear the negative. They have the holes built in so you don't have to punch them at all. Well thats the basic.
For the candle holder, make 4 segments of 4 strips. Cut a small dowel slightly longer than the strips. Long enough to add the doll heads and candle cups plus the strips. Take 2 of the segments and the dowel and weave them together including the dowel. Do that on all sides until you have a box shape. Paint 4 wooden doll heads and 4 wooden candle cups blackand glue to the ends of the dowels. Tuck in the ends of the lacing into the holes with a dab of glue. Measure the width of the box and cut a piece of metal to that size plus 2 inches. Cut a 1 inch square out of each corner. Use a ruler and embosser to score a line from each square that you cut out. You may want to wear gloves when working with metal. Bend the outer edges up and place inside the candle holder. It will rest on top of the candle cups you made for feet. Punch a hole in the top of each negative. I used a Cropodile. Add star eyelets. Use a thin coper wire to sew threw the eyelets adding a bead on the outside of each and wrapping around each dowel in the corner. This will give it a bit more stability. I recommend using only tea lights in this so it doesn't get too hot.

Concur...old school negatives and film are very flammable, but a simple solution would be to insert a LED tea-light, which can be purchases at most dollar store 2/$1.

That is a great idea! I realy havent used it yet and just dropped in a small candle long enough for pictures. I'm glad it survived the photo session though. LOL

Very fun!  And ditto nataluna's advice: an LED light, which doesn't give off heat, would be preferable to a candle; candles give off a good deal of warmth in close proximity.

i am crazy for LEDs because i actually have a small phobia about fire (or maybe a large one).
now i can have candles, like other people, because of LEDs !!
