OMG! This is so awesome! I think I'm going to make a collage picture vase with my kids this weekend. I'm also thinking of making a scrap book style vase for my mom. I have old keepsakes and mementos which are thin enough to glue to construction paper and slip inside a vase. What an excellent article!
