Saw something similar on Pinterest and thought it would make a great Christmas gift.  Aren’t the best gifts homemade from the heart? I think so.

Picked up a couple glass jars and puck candles from my local Hobby Lobby.

Scoured through this years photos to find some good looking smiles that brought up good memories and printed them on some vellum paper.

Wrapped them around and secured with some double sided tape.

It’s like a warm light shining behind a film strip.

My only after-thought was whether I should have sprayed a clear coat on the vellum afterwards.  I’m a little nervous about the toner flaking off.
