Yearbook Votive D.I.Y.

We're so excited to share our first webisode! We're calling this new project The Red Velvet Workshop. In this series we will be teaching DIY projects, recipes and beauty tutorials! Our first episode shares how to make these pretty yearbook votives. We used our parent's yearbook photos! Enjoy….

3Thanks so much for taking a peek at our brand new series! Happy Monday…. Elsie

  • wow, cool idea 🙂 result is great

  • Thanks for this great idea. I am going to use this for my daughter’s high school graduation party as table decorations– with photos of her from the years– and maybe she can make some to give her friends with photos of them together over the years.

  • This is perfect decor for a high school reunion! Thank you!

  • There are some exciting points with time in this article however I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart.Lovely website! I am loving it!! Will come back again.

  • 国土交通省運輸安全委員会は同日、船舶事故調査官を派遣。苫小牧海保は船長から事情を聴くなど事故の原因を調べる一方、巡視船など5隻とヘリを出して行方不明者を捜索している。

  • So fun! I am going to do this as a wedding shower gift with the engagement photos! Thanks for the tutorial.

  • what did you use to stick the pictures to the jar? can i just use normal white craft glue?
    also, when you say normal copy paper, do you mean white A4 paper, or a thicker kind?

    this is beautiful, cant wait to make one! 🙂

  • I just loved this idea! I’ve been in charge of our highschool reunions over the last 15 years and did use mason jars for a decoration last time.
    This would be really neat to copy our highschool pictures out of our yearbook and decorate with the candles etc. Thanks for sharing and giving me a new idea.

  • I’m totally going to do this with my bestie’s ultrasound pictures and wedding pictures! so excited! thanks for the great idea!

  • This would be great for like high school reunions…. would be great center pieces!!!

  • It’s an amazing idea! I’d like to write a post in my blog about this idea, may I?

  • so sute ,love it !

  • I can’t wait to see more videos like this one!! you girls are incredible and so cute 🙂

  • LOVE this – and I love the video! I’m excited to check out y’all’s upcoming video tutorials!

  • I loved your first video! How fun. Can’t wait to see more.

    Kindness is the best accessory,

  • it’s nice to see. but how it will be to dringk?

    anyways good post and good content, i personally feel very good reading this post.keep it up and keep going.

  • AH! Elise, you have the cutest voice! And that’s a really lovely project idea, too, woudl probably work withany old family photos…mmm…Christmas present ideas buzzing…

  • CONGRATULATIONS on your new projects! It’s so much fun! I love it! It’s soooo… 60s! Like a tv show from another era. Loved the music, the decoration, your styling, everything! So cute!

  • Could write the material forward with what you are doing the craft? I am spanish and I really love your blog, but my nivel of English is not good enough to understand everything 🙁 Thanks for the video! It’s great just like you!

  • You girls were made for TV! What a fabulous episode and a super fun DIY. Just gorgeous!

  • Awesome! I’m so excited you are doing this! It is much more likey that I will put it to practice if I see an example. The video is excellent quality too! Nice job 🙂

  • As much as I like all your beautiful posts and tutorials, I feel like this blog has turned into a DIY website controlled by robots. It’s ok if you want to change your theme and make it a little bit more bussiness-y, but you are so cold now.. It’s like you barely notice your readers.. like you’re not even there. 438 people (including me) have left you the sweetest birthday wishes and you haven’t even say a tini tiny thank you.
    All this thoughts have been on my mind for a very long time now.. I don’t know. Maybe you just don’t care that much

  • You two are so cute! I love the video!!! It is so well done and very fun! Great job! Can’t wait for more!

  • This is a neat idea. I like the idea of doing it with photobooth pictures, too.

  • oh, my god, you two are so lovely!!! I´m Julieta, from Argentina, i read your blog since may of this year and i try to read it every day. I love your vision of love, life, fashion and altough i´m not fan of vintage clothing i really like the work you do. Here in argentina we speak in spanish so, sorry for my english. I want to thank you for show me beauty is evrywhere. I really like you blog.
    Best of luck in your workshops!!

  • Wow, what an adorable video! Really sweet project too, especially loved knowing that you were using your parents’ yearbooks.

  • Please do more of these.

    I nearly died from a cute overload, you two are the cutest sisters in the world!

  • you two are so cute on video! and i love this project. so fun to use your parents’ yearbook photos!

  • so cute! hope the other “filler” picture people were classmates your parents got along with!! 😀

  • adorable!
    i’m just in love with this blog! i want to do everything everytime!
    so creative and simple!

    xoxo from brazil!

  • It sounds like an exciting project! Thanks for giving me the idea, can’t wait to work on it.

  • This video was just perfect. You both are so lovely, & I know I personally learn better visually then to just read it off the internet. Can’t wait to see more!!


  • I love this new extension of Red Velvet! This video is so cute and well made.

    Also, I collect vintage 17 magazines to and love that you display yours on your coffee table! I did my final senior project on “the changing roles of women as reflected in 17 magazine” Needless to say, it was the best research project ever 🙂

    love, Brittan

  • This is so cool! My image of you totally changed a bit when I heard your voices. Now you’re even more likeable than you already were!

  • Super cute and easy to understand video! I definitely think videos for the hair tutorials would be great, because some of them can be a bit hard to follow. Keep it up, ladies! 🙂

  • I loved it! I actually got a little misty-eyed watching the video because I’ve been reading for so long, and it was crazy to see the two of you “in person”. Like, “Oh, so THAT’S you!”

  • Your ideas are AMAZING! And you can’t find a single thing on your site that isn’t infused with pretty… Love the yearbook idea for graduation parties too.

  • This is actually very cool, but in Poland there are not many schools in which the Year Book is a tradition. In mine it wasn’t. 🙁
