Step 2:

Roll round the candle body into a tight tube gluing it down so that the stripes on the candle line up making a spiral pattern.

Fold over the flame parts and glue them down to make double thickness card. Leave the ends unglued. Fold up the ends of the wick as shown in the centre image.

Fit the flame into the candle tube.

Step 3:
