Ask a pharmacist! They’ll probably know exactly where to point you.

Long time reader here – and… well, I bought all the mixings for snow globes for Christmas time, and alas, I could not find the glycerin anywhere! (Michaels has been out for weeks.) Then, I happened upon this older post of yours. Corn Syrup?! Wow, I’m going to try it. I also saw your bottle said CVS on it – (tricky tricky spy in action!) :) I’m going to try there too. Any other ideas where I could find it?

Decide what size you need the photos to be; then insert them side by side into a blank document. Click on the photo corner and make it the required size by dragging. (I suggest using a diagonal drag to retain proportions.) Once you have them lined up, just insert your photo paper & print.

Thinking maybe the plastic keychain will help keep water out for longer.

As I was grating my PVC I noticed a smell and stopped. It is leaking to my picture also. Not worth the risks. :-S

As an art teacher, I am always looking for new ideas for holiday gifts. When I read this, the first thing I thought was that the photo will eventually leak and will get ruined. I am an avid user of my laminator and know that if items get wet, the water will eventually seep through and leak. I think the best solution is to use a plastic holiday item and glue it with waterproof glue. Not nearly as cute as a photo, but they will last. I looked into waterproof paper and waterproof sealing for photos but eventually, even they won’t hold up. The only solution is to empty the snow globe and use it only for holiday times. That may be the best solution.

My son did this craft at our local food co-op and when I found out that they were using PVC pipe, I internally freaked out, although I said nothing to my son who was very excited about this project.

PVC when burned releases dioxins, so if you grate hard and fast enough, you could generate enough heat to cause concern. Does anyone have any ideas about this? My other son is scheduled to go do this project at our co-op on Saturday.

Thank you!

It turned out wonderful except that all the glitter stuck to the picture.. :(
I don’t know what I can do differently! If anyone could help me, that would be more than appreciated!

Thank you!
