To make this beautiful candle photos, you're going to need: a 14oz candle, or standard clear glass vase, and Heavy duty packing tape.

Print your favorite pictures on standard printing paper, BUT in order for the pictures to show, you must print your pictures with a LASER INK PRINTER.

You're also going to need a credit card, and a bowl of water.

To use large picture (5X7) on standard glass vase, place three strips of tape vertically, overlapping each other just a bit.

Submerge pictures in water for at least 15 minutes. The longer they're submerged, the easier to pull off paper from tape.

In order for tape to adhere you must completely, and gently rub off paper residue from tape.

Let tape air dry.

No worries! After tape dries the glue will return.
