Photo Memory Tealights

I found this easy and beautiful craft at inspired ideas check out their tutorial.. these would make wonderful gifts for your loved ones, or just to decorate your own home =)

I finally got all the suplies together to try it.

All you need is contact adhesive paper, black and white photo - photocopied or laser printed, and a small glass - candle holder


Stick copy side of photo onto sticky side of contact


Rub using popsicle stick or similar


Rinse under water - wetting the paper thoroughly


Gently rub off the paper


Leave to dry - stickiness will return once dried


Voila!! Your own professional print that can be stuck anywhere!!


Add Candle for effect


Small glass candle holders are the best, but since this was my practice run, I used a spaghetti sauce bottle - I am off to Ikea to find some small glass containers!! Watch out world.. our likeness will be everywhere now!!

These are just great - I can't wait to try them. Thanks for the 'crafty kids' links. Those (along with your ideas) have really inspired me! Your blog has really given me a much needed kick in the pants! The kids have been driving me potty and getting me down of late! Hard enough keeping on top of the housework etc.. let alone doing 'interesting' things with the boys! But I have found alot of the things you have written and ideas you have (about all facets of life) have made me try and look on the positive of this crazy time I am having and try to enjoy the boys a bit more - so thanks for that xxx
