    Thanks Karla! Like Sarah said, getting things aligned properly on the velum is the hardest part.

      You guys are very welcome... sorry it took me so long to post. I saw you guys struggling with them, but I never had time to jump on the computer and post the template.

          I didn't mean to, I promise!!
          My hubby hijacks our office every night working and I don't want to disturb him. He has a HUGE deadline next week and has been working crazy hours (we're talking 1 AM/2 AM) since we came back from the wedding. Sucks...

              ana, they look great! That is exactly what I'm doing for ours! I think I might do 4 instead of three but not sure yet! I got some great velum paper and the pictures look great on them! Did you staple the velum on to the back of the picture frames? Where did you end up getting your frames from?
              What kind of candle did use and how many? Sorry for all the questions!

                I got the frames on ebay, they're from ikea, i got 18 for 32 dollars and I just taped the pics to the frame.

                And the vellum paper i don't know if I got it right 'cause I went to office depot and the only vellum I found was vellum cover, It's thick but I think it does the work, only the photos look kinda blurry

                I placed just 1 candle and it's a round one inside of a small glass vase but because I already had it in my house, I think any candle might work.

                And don't worry about the questions I love answering and specially because I got the idea from this thread!!
