At first glance, these appear to be ordinary makeup compacts....because they are ordinary compacts! But these are very special. Inside the empty compartments, I put some of my favorite pictures. It's easy to do, especially by using existing prints and cutting them up. I think the one that turned out best is the one of me and my brother: I flipped us from our original positions so we face each other. I guess I just like the play on the compacts being on my vanity. Hope you like it!
