Vintage Paper Votives
I recently acquired a twenty five year old Encyclopedia and I really had to let it sit around for a few weeks before I figured out what I wanted to do with it.
I paged thru it and marked some of the images that I really loved and then sat down one night and cut a few out.
Then the inspiration finally hit me and I knew what I wanted to make,so I collected my materials.
A Plastic sleeve and a glass candle holder.
Then I covered them both with pages from the book with Mod Podge.
I also had bought these metal edge tags for $1.00 a few weeks ago and decided to use them as well.
I used them to frame an image from the Encyclopedia.
The last step after they were dry was to add a little ribbon and a battery operated candle.
Sitting on a old dictionary during the day..
And lit during the evening!
