Add Some Cuteness to Your Soap Bottles with Photos of Trapped People

Jill Gillen has a fun photo craft idea for customizing any clear hand sanitizer bottles you have sitting around the house: add photographs of trapped family members! She writes,

This would also be a neat idea for family members across generations (e.g. grandfather, father, son, etc…).
