make your own wax tarts (a la Scentsy's products)! We just made them - and candles - with the kids in craft group, and it was great fun!

We used the clam shell containers I bought at Voyageur Soap & Candle, but you can use silicone ice cube trays, chocolate molds, and other molds to make them as well!
