How to Make a Photo Collage Vase
Turn your favorite memories into a vase that you can display anywhere! Place a mini tealight inside your finished vase to illuminate your selected images. Just remember, if you pick an image with any lettering or words, you must flip the image horizontally before printing.
Trim your image to 3" x 3".
Cut a piece of laminate slightly larger than the image.
Peel the backing
Peel the backing off of the laminate and lay it sticky side up on a smooth work surface.
Adhere the laminate and image
Beginning with one side of the image, carefully lay it printed side down onto the sticky surface. Flip the laminate over and rub the surface with the edge of a popsicle stick to assure an even adhesion of the image.
Rub off the paper
Flip the laminate back over to the wrong side. Wet your fingertips and gently rub the paper in a circular motion. The paper will break down and peel off. Continue wetting your fingertips and rubbing the paper until it is completely gone.
Thoroughly clean the vase with glass cleaner.
Trim off any uneven edges. In a well-ventilated area, lightly spray the back of the image transfer with spray adhesive.
Adhere image transfer
Apply the image transfer to the outside of your vase. Rub out any air bubbles to assure an even adhesion of the image.
Repeat the process for the remaining sides of the vase.
Display the vase with a mini tea light inside.
