Description

    BACKGROUND OF INVENTION
  • I was making soy candles and was trying to come up with something different to be competitive in the market I was attempting to make a way that the person buying the candle as a gift could put a personal message with it I was also seeking a way to store the soy wax information about the candle because many people do not know the benefits of burning a soy candle verses a paraffin one. I came up with the idea that the candle could be put in a keepsake, collectible, or ajar, that a hollow area, pocket and attachment could be made-in or attached onto any part of the candleholder. More than one hollow area, pocket or attachment could be used I found I could also use these methods to store information about the soy wax.
  • From there I realized that this method could be used on other objects besides candles. It could be used on keepsakes, collectibles, any item made of any material in any size, shape or form. The item could also be placed on a gift bag or box enabling any gift to be given with a personal message and the item to become a keepsake.
