I decided that since I don't have many family pictures up, I wanted a nice way to hang some, the idea changed over and over but I kept coming back to a picture holder.

Here's the original items, though I didn't use about half of them when it was all  said and done:

Close ups:

I used:
Butterfly picture
glass ovals
tissue paper
small foam picture frames
battery powered tea lights
wire frame candle holder
ribbon bow

(I didn't use the gift bag, wire or colored 3D glue)

And here's what I made:

I had to take the pic from the side to get rid of the flash glare, so it's not crooked like it looks.  I couldn't seem to get a picture that shows the little candle going, but it gives off a nice little flickering glow.  Thank you for looking.

I can make that...

That is very lovely. I love the way you covered the small frames.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!
