"Bottom of the jar" idea... I've done this for years. Also, instead of cutting it out, as she suggests, you can just leave your candle on the stove while you're cooking and it will heat it up to liquid form. Check to make sure the jar isn't too hot to handle (if it is, a glove works great!), then pour it out into either your wax warmers, or if you have some wax molds, pour them into that for shapes. They make perfect gifts that didn't cost anything extra!
