Picture This...

While checking out emails about the New York Gift Fair, we saw these vases by Los Angeles glass artist Jenny Gaynor.
She creates these custom Photo-transfer vases by transferring photographs onto a recycled glass vase.  The vases shown range in price from $425 - $525.  With 45-84 photos, these vases are perfect for a special occasion that you'd want to remember! 

OK....we know you are still in sticker shock with the price....well, try making your own vaseHow would a Summer Kitchen Girl make this vase?
She would copy a bunch of photos (most likely black & white!) and cut them in the design or size they would need to be for the vase.  We'd use a clear glass vase and some mod podge for sure!  We really like how Jenny has that space between the pictures we'd do that - that's a nice detail!  After the pictures were on and the mod podge had dried, we'd cover it in a clear acrylic paint like Krylon Crystal Clear Varnish Spray (we like this because it is a tough clear finish that won't yellow with age.) 

Need more ideas?  Kodak has a How To page to get you thinking here!

Beuatiful vases.
You know you could have photos turned into slides or use vintage slides..or... use negatives....and apply for a more see thru the vase ;)
